    For the sale price, I just pulled the trigger in the same size as I am in 65 Last (8.5D). The color is so hard to judge on the laptop screen, so we'll see how they look when they arrive. If they are close to what I expect they might fit the bill for a semi-casual shoe I'm looking for

    Should be around 450 or so. Whatever a Dalton runs.

    I just hope they bring back the herringbone pattern and classic dark colors, not like the odd looking tan and tartan BB versions.

    ^What middlepP said!

    I've been lusting over Chili Shaker Heights for a while now. Have had to make do with my black ones so far. Cordovan Leeds sound quite tempting too, although I think I'd prefer them with a v-tread sole.

    Thats seems high to me. Maybe the shoe is just hard to judge from images. I do love the herringbone design however.

    Shakers are priced the same as other dress boots like Daltons. I imagine we'll get another round of price increases for the fall across the board, so I was guesstimating.

    Good luck with fitment.
    I was looking at these on the seconds site, but got these on ebay new from Steve's shoes for $100 shipped! These are definitely seconds with a tiny stain on the top right upper, but you can't see it from eye level. I am very be happy so far.

    Ok, I misread your last post, and thought your previous picture was of the Shannon Drives, and I was wondering why they had no toe medallion. These are cool, a nice sneaker alternative. They look really comfortable too. I was somewhat tempted by them but got my Cronmoks instead.

    LOL, you are one sick puppy! I remember our discussion about how poorly the burgundy/black Sheltons seemed to age on EBay. But I did notice how much better the used walnut ones held up. That's why I was surprised to see you had some walnut Sheltons. How'd you find them?

    I passed this time because another thing now concerns me a little: the double oak sole. I stand a lot and my McT's are definitely less comfortable by the end of the day than everything else. Still love the look though.

    I still wonder where the recent seconds are coming from. Maybe the Shelton 2.0 mentioned during Paul's previous AMA, iirc?

    I like the cronmok alot. Their appearance kinda does resemble these a little bit now that you mention it.

    Which previous post, my Warton or my gray Frye LWB post or a different post?

    For some reason, Cronmoks always make me think of this guy:

    I really hate to take the thread in this direction, but why not: how high is the shaft (of this boot)? I guess I just don't like things touching my ankle so I really didn't take to the Dalton or Long Branch. I just measured mine (the Bleecker Street chukka, that is) and it's 5 5/8" from bottom of the heel to the top of the shaft. I'm happy with it.

    OK, how many double entendres was that? :D

    Four shots of bourbon today. Wore my Larchmonts and Manistee to work, and came home to a pair of Mora 2.0s and a Walters Street belt from Mebane Shoe Bank on my front porch.

    Trying the Moras on now. They look ok, only very faint striping, and a dent on the left strap. Right heel creaks though, and there's some uncomfortable pressure on my left lateral toes. That's been a general problem spot for me lately, which is really freaking stupid because my left foot is slightly smaller overall than my right. Same problem I have in my Dundee 2.0s.

    Question: are you supposed to slip monks on and off, or are you supposed to undo the buckles every time?
