Absolutely wonderful! While I haven't been a fan of antique edge with color 8, today's pics are inspiring! Well done rydenfan and Sazon

I think that in some ways black exhibits the beauty of shell better than any other color. Sure seems to shine better, but maybe thats what you mean by plasticky.Warning: Black Shell! (Click to show)
Looking forward to wearing my black unlined LHS with some gray flannels and a cashmere sweater this winter.
Bakes, you're killin' me with these pics of gorgeous black shell. Wear often and in great health my friend!!
seeing all this beautiful #8 has me bummed about my severely neglected LS indys.. no amount of brushing will produce a shine worthy of this thread..
I wonder if it's time to send them to someone more experienced.. I've never put polish on them (maybe reno, but I cant recall)
It is the time to use a little bit of paste wax.
I've really enjoyed all the pics of the black shell and these nst lace ups especially stand out in part because they look almost gunmetal gray, even green.
Is that the light creating that effect or have you actually noticed a change in the color? I'm debating on whether or not to leave some shell shoes out in the sun..
Black shell is great. I have a few of the exact same models in whiskey shell and black shell (and other colors). With the exception of the LHS, I would part with my whiskey before my black.
You've likely already seen this, but...
...Horween warns that it is likely to expose imperfections that were hidden in the dying process. I surmise that shells that have been chosen to be dyed black are those with the worst imperfections.
