    Those look great. I love my BRown shell dundees. I don't have any recent pics, but they've come to show great character and I reach for them as often as any shoe in my closet.

    A little behind on cleaning. Fortunately nothing major. Mostly wiping and brushing with a little edge clean-up.

    Happy Easter forum pals. I spent the day rehabing some vintage black shell Florsheim long wings. These are some of the last ones made in the US before everything went overseas and turned to crap. These youngsters are only 19 years old. They have a style number, 13026, that I had never seen listed with other Florsheim shell numbers.

    Well Charlie Brown finally kicked the football and the trunk show occurred. I received my natty shell MacNeils yesterday. Yes, there is a stitch out of place and things to pick at, but this just means it was built by people as opposed to being stamped out of a machine. They are everything I wanted. The slight difference in leather colors give them a spectator vibe.

    This is a duplicate post of pics from the Santoni thread. Just bought (found) these super rare Santoni shell oxfords. They are several years old and only one of one or two Shell Cordovan runs by Santoni, that I know of.

    They may be a bit large, unfortunately, but I'm assessing if I can make them work. These would be my first pair of shoes in shell. I'm a big fan of Santoni particularly their goodyear line. These are built like tanks. Check them out! Also, depending on lighting they appear more burgundy with flash compared to the more brown shown here. I assume this is typical for burgundy shell shoes?

    Dang, those are just superb looking, great find. I love the Shell tag. Hope that they work out.


    Dang, those are just beautiful. Those have a great vibe to them indeed and I love a little color variation between panels myself.


    That's a great looking voucher Jazz!
