Agreed. Super easy to identify vs calf.Honestly, if you just upload a few photos of them, we should be able to identify if they're shell or not based on the pictures alone. Once you have an eye for it, the only thing that can fool you is a glossy pair of unworn corrected grain leather... which the Mora wasn't made in.
Those are SO good with that welt and edge color. I wish I liked the 97 last more....I started to WFH this week.
Yesterday, I wore canvas chinos and a button-down shirt. My wife asked “you dressed up to work from home?”
So today I dressed it down a little. Denim and flannel. I also wore these
MacNeils for the first time. (I’ve had them in cold storage for a couple years.)

Stay healthy, everyone.
LOVE that shoe. It's coming up in my rotation... So classic and a great take on the great American classic, the Longwing.
When I first started this whole (shoe) rat race, it took a minute to tell. Now it's second nature and can't be unlearned!Agreed. Super easy to identify vs calf.
Calf, without a doubt.
Here's a really old pic, but you can see PA and Norwich have microcreases like your Mora, while the Alden in middle rolls. General rule of thumb, when in doubt assume not shell (especially on bargin eBay auctions)Excellent... the lightbulb just went on. Thanks. I see exactly what to look for.
Beauties! But ya gotta be a D for that maker, right?
Seemingly every shoemaker other than Allen Edmonds, Alden, and Rancourt: There aren't enough of you for us to care about you, so you narrow width people can just wear D width with some heel pads or thicker socks or something. Who cares that your feet will still ping pong around inside the shoe with those solutions?Nope! They have E sizes for just about everything and some EEE sizes. Might be out of luck if you're a narrow size though.
Infiltration in progress [behind these buttons].
These look like shell AE x Wolverine? Stunning.
Thanks for sharing pictures. I am torn between a suede plain toe or moc-toe boot. It would help my decision if that one came with a rubber sole since I like the pattern better, but can't justify anything else on a leather sole (so much rain).
