    I guess it never hurts to ask. Is there an original post that contained his email address? I can't seem to find it. I don't see it on his blog either.

    Using the 20% off Tanger discount I ordered a pair of Walnut Shell Dalton seconds. They came in this morning and after some renovateur and brushing, they began to look brilliant.

    [​IMG]


    I thought the seconds defect was sloppy brogue-ing but unfortunately, its much worse than that... there is a cut where the vamp meets the toe box... As seen below, I am using my finger to expose the vamp and the cut is not significantly noticeably when the shoes are firmly laced (not pictured)...
    [​IMG]



    But when I remove the lacing its revealed that the cut is fairly large...

    [​IMG]


    I really want to keep this pair seeing as how there are no other seconds in my size, but given the circumstances, will the cut compromise the integrity of the shoe over time? I live near a highly skilled cobbler as well, are there any potential ways of patching the cut?

    Good Looking boots.

    Given the amount of money you saved and having a local cobbler, I suggest having him take a look. Beats shipping and returning at this point.

    I agree with David. Walnut shell is apparently a rare, nigh-unattainable beast from here on out; if the boots fit well, I bet that cobbler's services would be well worth it.

    ^^ I agree with the others. Keep them and see if they can be repaired. Not even sure it would cause a problem if you didn't repair them unless your instep puts a lot of pressure at that point.

    They are gorgeous! Congratulations and enjoy.

    I wear an 8D in the Daltons (1-511) and a 7.5D for the J.Crew x Alden #8 PCT boots (Barrie). It would be hard for me to say which boots are more comfortable. Both are very comfortable. The Aldens are a little heavier than the Daltons but still very comfortable.

    Just ordered the Navy Suede Spiaggia and Brown Long Branch from the Shoe Bank, 2/$250...Oh Happy Day! Hope the defects are minimal.

    The Spiaggia looks to be a suede version of the McAllister, which fits a bit looser than my Strands (both of which I have in 8E). Therefore, I ordered an 8D. That will at least tell me if I should return my McAllisters for an 8D or the Spiaggia for an 8E.

    Just ordered the brown burnished McGraws and I also went for brown Long Branches, at 2/$250! Yay!

    (I had my eye on the brown Chromexcel Bayfields, but someone snagged them. Was it one of you!?)

    It wasn't me, but if I ever find an 8.5D Chromexcel Bayfield second, I'll be one happy man.

    Thanks for the tips. I'm not going to look down my nose at you for using Kiwi, your results speak for themselves. I use Kiwi polish sometimes too. I like to use the quick-shine sponges from Kiwi--I'm going to use one right now on my Ridgeways.

    Good score. I have had the waxy brown Long Branches for almost a year now and they are really growing on me. I initially got them since I really like my Daltons and the price was really good. Wasn't quite sure about them but they are now getting that "worn in" look and I am really liking them. Best to wear the heck out of them. Enjoy.
