    Beautiful. These are my favorites and get more use than my walnut Dalton's. The big question is... What will happen when my new gray Dalton's arrive!!!

    Thanks! Posted these to give an example of my cap toe preference. these are C&J's HG bal boots: Somerville. Unfortunately my Fifth Streets fell out of my rotation when I picked this pair up.

    Thanks guys. They're still fairly new...just a few wears in.

    Other dark chocolate dalton owners...what kind of wax polish do you guys use? All I have is the brown kiwi wax for now.

    I've been using the dark brown AE cream polish, with lots of brushing. It's working very well. I also tried the close out mocha color which worked nicely too. Haven't tried a wax yet so i am interested to hear what others say but I suspect it doesn't really matter given how dark the brown of the boot is.

    Great looking shoe! I think I know where they got the idea for the new AE Winter Park (photo from the AE website) [​IMG] Chris

    I saw the Winterpark in the store. I like it much better than the MacNeil.

    Sanderson is a great looking shoe, as is the Winter Park. They got the idea from themselves, as the Sanderson is the Williams, which is on the 2 last.

    But great to see a nice wingtip on the 1 last. But this interesting - the Walnut Winter Park has 5 blind eyelets, while the black has 4 round eyelets:

    The Sanderson might be the nicest AE shoe I own. The burnishing on the brown model is fantastic and it somehow looks like a relatively sleek longwing.

    All RL shoes are on custom last. Sanderson is on a custom last that is similar to 2 last. Below is mine after one and half years of service !
