I agree with that logic. I've never understood this. Some models they could do: Burgundy Strand Black Strand Brown Leeds Brown MacNeil Brown Bradley Black Bradley (they made this at one point, actually) Brown Cambridge Black Dalton Brown Dalton And those are just the ones that I would buy (or have managed to buy already). I think the Norwich would be a damn good looking shoe in burgundy shell. I just can't get a good fit on that shoe. My understanding is that do not generally keep uppers on standby for shell anymore. So why can't they just do all of their shell offerings in any of the three colors? It's literally just a color switch.
