    Those boots would look damn nice in burgundy or cappuccino shell.

    yeah... I don't mind the shape, but the color is absolutely hideous.

    Presumably, it would be feasible to pursue a pair of shell Cronmoks via Paul Grangaard's MTO offer, if you wanted something along those lines -- or shell Fifth Streets, if a cap-toe were preferred. Don't at least one or two folks have MTO shell Fifth Streets being manufactured right now?

    At first blush, the pictured boots certainly look like they're built using the Cronmok pattern and 5-last, with the exception of the "colorful" uppers.


    The (ahem) unusual leather seems reminiscent of the "hi-shine calfskin" used on the following shoes by Mezlan, though I haven't seen any of them in person:

    Hmm.

    Wow. No way those will ever make production. At least...I'd hope not. Purely dreadful. Looks as if my 3 year old niece got at them with her finger paints.

    Bastard childs of museum calf.

    I would not be adverse to some green or navy shell cordovan AEs, however.

    The W stamp means they were sold outside the normal retail channels. From what I understand, AE will not recraft shoes with the W stamp.

    I thought it meant they were "worn"?

    Hello Richelieu23 (Is that an Iowa Hawkeye emblem I see?) - The shoe stamp does indeed denote seconds. The shoemaker's hammer is for Recrafted shoes. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for your business and your support of great American shoes!

    Best wishes,
    Paul​

    The same seller has posted some other interesting shoes. Nothing brand new, but interesting still.

    I spoke to soon. My MTO walnut shell cordovan Macneils never left Port Washington. They did not pass inspection, so they are making me another pair. So, the wait continues. It has been 10 1/2 weeks. I am really wanting these. Especially after seeing polojock615's pic a while back. Since they are remaking mine, I had them change the sole to match the make up polo had. I had gone with traditional brown. I have that on my brown shell strands. Allison was nice enough to make the change since the are re-making the shoe. Still, 10 1/2 weeks so far, and more time to go. I need my fix...[​IMG]

    It will be 9 weeks tomorrow since I finalized my custom shell order.

    I am told they are in the "final inspection stages now."

    I spent nine days in 2011 tromping around London, Liverpool, Glasgow, and the Highlands in a pair of boots very similar to the Bayfield. You'll have the perfect footwear for your trip. Have fun!


    Man, that's harsh -- sorry to hear it. I bet fifteen years from now when they're far and away the most beautiful shoes you own you'll completely forget about the wait and frustration of getting them...
