    They're here! After many weeks of waiting, my walnut/cappuccino shell Sheltons and walnut shell MacNeils are here!

    The variations in shell color amuse me. All three of the below are walnut shell, but they are three very distinct colors. Is the MacNeil what one might consider ravello? It's very red.

    For me, I went up half a size. I have the McAllister and McTavish in 12D and a shell MacNeil in 12.5D. The MacNeil in 12D really pinched the front of my foot, not side to side but top to bottom. I have read that others here stayed the same size in these shoes. In all honesty the 7 last probably doesn't fit me very well, but the MacNeil looks great in my opinion.

    What are the sizing thoughts on the Lasalle vs. the 5 last?

    I'm looking to jump on the sale price this time.

    That is the best MacNeil I've seen. Give the Alden LWB's a run for their money. How did you come across those?

    Great color combination on the Sheltons. I'm getting an MTO in walnut shell too, and would be very pleased if the color matches your MacNeils. I think you made nice choices and hope you enjoy them.

    Crossing my fingers the walnut shell used for my makeup is the same as yours with that rich red color.

    Enjoy!

    A bit late with my Cordovan Patriot pics but here we go. Cross post of Shoe Sock Combo thread.

    A bit unorthodox but to hell with it.

    Those MacNeils look great. Mine should be here anytime. It's been 6 1/2 weeks since they were ordered.... Seeing yours, I really want mine.

    WOW! Those are fantastic choices. I really almost wish that I hadn't seen those Sheltons, as i already have one Paul special shell on order, i will be confirming a second Paul special shell on Friday and i broke down yesterday and ordered a tentsale shell Black Shell Dundees. instead I'll just have to save up more..whoever said shell is addictive sure wasn't kidding, the only shell I've got so far is my two color samples and already I'm in for three pairs! ::slayer::

    It's your lucky day--as of last week AE said Paul's offer is still open for SF members and they're letting me do a second order this week.

    That photo neatly sums up every single bad influence on this thread. Gorgeous shoes, sir!

    It's really not possible to answer your question based on the pictures. What I see looks completely normal, but that doesn't mean the trees are the correct size. Hopefully you used a size chart when selecting your trees, and if so, I'm sure they are fine.
