    +1, I saw a few different styles at Anatomica. They are primarily V-Tips, cap toes, and PTBs. I did not see any wingtips or medallion toe shoes. Nonetheless, I have no shell, and this may be a good place to start.

    I believe Moulded Shoe's modified last models are priced at a premium as well, though one not quite as steep as this.

    Moulded shoe runs about $560 depending on the make up.

    Yes, this. This is the reason for this thread.

    I disagree. The overconsumption of longwings on SF is maddening. These are perfect.

    Different strokes for different folks. I don't have any Long Wings and would like to fill that gap.

    And the thread is heading nowhere, so far.
