    I am at 17 shell shoes\boots currently and only have had serious water welts with one of them, my black shell Dundee's. They are the only ones I use Defender on for that very reason, because I'm not sure. Someone on the Alden of Carmel site suggested several thin coats of wax for protection and I do have a few that I have done that to, my black shell PA's and burgundy Cambridge. I have not had any issues with them and water using just a few thin coats of wax over a period of a year or more. But they also never seemed to have water issues either.

    Nothing wrong with this. Your wallets will thank you.

    Following up on this...

    I checked my new strands and all of my other AE leather shoes and none of them exhibit this behavior. How would you guys feel if your new shoes broke in like this? I'm trying to figure out if this is a defect or if I'm being too anal.

    I have never owned any A/E shoes.

    However, last week, I bought 2 pair in one day.

    Here's one of them:

    They look good. I think I saw a similar pair at Nordstrom Rack. What model are they?

    That is the Schautal in tan suede. I assume it is made for the German AE market, but that is just an assumption. It is pretty much the MacNeil in tan suede, but it seems to be built on the 3-73 last based on the model number (assuming they use the same numbering system for their shoes in Germany). It has a double leather sole, brown edge trim, cream colored glove leather lining. I tried them on and found them quite cozy, and I think they are a great value if you are looking for a suede wingtip.

    Not sure. Originally thought it was the Larchmont because of the squared-off toe (i.e. the 3 last), however it only has 4 eyelits and a different medallion.

    Does look like an Allen Edmonds to me.

    True, very true. But eventually even your wallets can turn to shell if your not careful...

    I still like and appreciate other materials, calf, cowhide, suede, CXL, etc. which I still own and purchase. It does not have to be an exclusive agreement. But I do have to admit that the shell will try to take over, be careful.....
