    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Am I the only one who didn't like the Dalton boot? Received mine earlier today, and was quite disappointed. First, I found the 5 last to be too elongated for a boot. Second, the boots are surprisingly light weight; almost unbelievably light for their size.

    I was hoping the Dalton would be similar to the Trickers Stows--a nice, substantial semi-dress, semi-casual boot--but they honestly (IMO) pale in comparison.

    Daltons are on the 1 Last but the point still stands. I am not the biggest fan of AEs shankless construction for boots. I feel the same as you, I own a pair of Daltons in walnut and they are sitting in my closet completely unworn.

    ^I do not have the Dalton, but I do not like it personally.

    They look great. I have yet to see even one shell Dalton available on the seconds list in my size during any of these sales where you can get shell in the $300's.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'm usually a 36, but sometimes a 38 pants size. I ordered a 36 as the only other option was 44. Hopefully it will fit. Worth a try for just over $20.

    I stopped home at lunch today to see my walnut shell seconds Macneils. These are the ones I had made that didn't pass inspection for some reason. They arrived, though they are a bit darker than I expected.

    Here is a my walnut shell Macneils thy did pass inspection.

    Before anyone points out the obvious, that the welts are different, I know, I had them change it on the order.

    Could it be the color was to dark to pass as walnut and that is why they are considered seconds? Clearly I haven't laced them yet, but barring any lacing line up issues, I can't see why these are seconds. They are darker than the walnuts I received with the MTO program...

    I think they seem to have a lot more cream applied. I think you could strip them down and shine them up nicely. Pretty nice you have your choice of welt color :)

    Wait.

    If all shoes are on sale for 15% off next month, then wouldn't all shell offerings (except dalton) be roughly the same price as these brown webgems (minus the shoe trees)?

    Couldn't they have decided this before they cut the shell to make the shoe?
