    I've been denying the urge to try cordovan for awhile now. I just sent an email regarding the 8.5D Townley. I almost hope they are sold out.

    Gave it a shot but got the voicemail; looks like Rick must be pretty busy. I'll call again in a bit!

    EDIT: Ehh, on second thought, I don't like the shape of the toe; it's too big for me. Lucky for whoever wears 10D :)

    Well.. same as all other AE shells, townley had crazy amount of factory polish on upper. So I applied about 10~15 coats of saphir renovatuer and brushed around 5 mins per shoe for each application. But I still get polish off from upper.. time to order renomat i guess

    Doc I'd call them. And have your card in hand.. just in case. This would be a wonderful opportunity to get into shell with a great shoe at a great price. IMO anyhow.

    Some people end up not liking shell. But many of us find it the best material ever made to make a shoe or boot. I expect my shell footwear will outlast me at this point in my life.

    I just snagged the 8.5D. Sorry and/or you're welcome. :)

    Brian said that he only has 4 10.5D and 1 10D remaining.

    I wonder if he realized how fast these would go. He should have bought them all himself and flipped them for a profit here! I'm sure he learned of the power of SF, just like Jeffersonville did.

    Honestly, I'm relieved. There are other models on my wish list...was just hard to pass on this deal.

    Next up, bourbon McAllisters!
