Oh wow those do look really cool!Day 3 of the @ae_ashley appreciation brings us this example that I never knew I wanted.
I'd considered a Dalton in the past. At first, I thought I'd get a walnut pair, but with a golden CXL pair of Longbranch boots, it seemed a bit redundant. Then, I thought that maybe chili would be a good fit, but when Ashley got me into that pair of chili MacNeils, it kind of scratched my chili itch. Thought about dark brown, but with a good number of dark brown boots already, I had trouble justifying it. Maybe a burgundy shell version? Well, the pair of burgundy shell HMs took precedence.
When Ashley e-mailed me, almost apologetically, about a pair of Daltons that had come in I thought it would be easy to say no. I was still riding the high of the shell HMs, the wallet was still feeling the lows of the TS2019 purchase, and I had all the afore-mentioned anti-Dalton logic listed above.
I really am a moron.
Of course I said yes to Ashley. She told me about an oxblood pair of Daltons with red Dainite soles. She assured me that, even though that combination sounded weird, it looked really cool. I asked for pictures and a price and was pleasantly gobsmacked by both. A couple days later, they were mine. And, yeah, they still look really cool, especially hidden under my desk basking in the glory of the corporate carpet.
