    Dubious. Unless I handled them I would not be convinced they are shell cordovan.

    Also late but it was a very good year (esp. considering those coming..and that I finally got my sizing dialed in)
    Thanks again @mdubs @mrdv for much guidance and an inspiring collection!

    2014 acquisitions:
    White suede bucks (Barrie/Madison)
    Cigar plain toe blucher (Plaza/Harrison LTD, new in box for a few months / will likely sell)
    Halleck #8 wing tip boot (Barrie/Unionmade)
    Ravello plain toe boot (Modified/Anatomica)
    #8 chukka (Barrie/SF member/not getting into the rotation/will likely sell)

    2015 in the pipeline:
    Whiskey wing tip boot (Barrie/Alden Madison)
    Whiskey chukka (Barrie/Alden Madison)
    Cigar chukka (Barrie/Alden Madison)

    hope to acquire realistically:
    Ravello wing tip boot
    DC Cigar Captoes
    Ravello NST boot

    less realistically:
    Cigar plain toe boot
    Black shell boot with antique trim
    Whiskey monk

    Happy New Year gents!
    To wearing in good health

    Wow what a year! Nice pickups! Jealous of the hallecks and ravello ptboots! Those ptboots are really starting to grow on me after seeing all the recent pics.
    And I think passing on the madison whiskey wingtip boots will be one of my biggest alden shoe regrets.

    I know this question has been asked before but...

    1 - Is it safe to use a bit of saphir cordovan cream on shell?

    2 - what is good edge dressing to use for antique edge?

    thanks Gents.
