    Yes. See below. I have the pair pictured as well as the same in No. 8 shell, tan suede ("dirty bucks") and white nubuck with red rubber soles ("white bucks").

    Tan suede works for me.

    Nice choice. Did the same here, or so I think. Confirmation email had the FD number I ordered, but listed as black. Guess we'll see in a few days. Temporarily worried that we were after the same pair. But I checked your profile and we aren't even close to the same size. :D

    Still, it would be nice to know that there was support for the make up . . . but duly noted. Consider that a successful Modified make-up, any make-up, will only attract more interest in a shell Modified. Just think about it.

    Yeah - mine were listed as black on the receipt also. The lady on the phone said if they ended up actually being black shoemart will take care of things.
    Here's hoping they work out.

    Right. Not really worried. Might even keep black. Who knows. Mine are listed as shipped this morning, so if all goes well, I should have them on Friday.

    Shell in a special color is an excellent idea.

    Yes black. And/or whiskey.

    Nothing obviously wrong with them, that I can see. Maybe one or two slight imperfections in the finish, but better than a pair of Whiskey shell firsts I just bought because they are balmorals and 11E... :embar:

    Immediate impression is that the modified last fits me very well through the arch, instep, and heel. I bet I could wear the elusive 10.5E, but I won't hold my breath until I find those.
