    I so want a pair of burgundy shell Mccneils. None on the list in size 12D though. I wear my black and 2 pairs of walnut Macneils all the time. I really think the Macneil is a staple, and the burgundy shell is beautiful. It is one of the few missing shoes in my collection.

    You and me both. I called a few weeks ago, and they didn't have a pair in 12D then.

    After treating with Saphir Cordovan Cordovan shoe polish, they are older and have started the turn toward brown. Sizing for me is pretty straight forward but not sure if my feet could be considered "normal". I wear a 10D in both 1 and 5 last and they both fit me perfectly. As well as the 1 last fits me I think the 5 fits me just a little bit better. Others on here have had to change sizing between the 1 and 5 last however. I don't think you will regret the burgundy shell Leeds they were my first pair of shell and still see a lot of use.

    And I too so want a pair of burgundy shell Macneil in size 10D. They have not been available in my size during any of the sales over the years, including this one. I heard back from Kristle last night and the one pair they do have is listed as burgundy but she said in real life they look brown so I passed. She came back with - how about if I put you on the waiting list and when they become available you can have them for the current sale price of $299? So I will finally get my shell gunboats, just don't know when. Not sure if that is always an option but considering how many shoes you all have I would certainly think so. Worth a try!

    when you mean change sizes, you mean to size down and not size up from the 5-Last to the 1-Last?

    woo hoo.

    I placed my order last night for a pair of 10 EEE Shell Burgundy Dalton's, for the absurdly low price of $299.

    These are quite possibly my wedding shoes!

    That's great! That's an amazing deal for a pair of boots that will last many, many years.

    I was happy to grab a pair of brown distressed Pine River casual double monks and a pair of casual Bellevue chukkas in my size of 13B. At 50% off, that's a steal. I am now officially done buying shoes for quite a while.

    I'm very curious about the pine river. I was always kinda drawn to it. Can anyone comment on the last/fit?

    Actually, it was not 50% off, that was my mistake. The Pine River went from $234 to $159 and the Bellevue went from $234 to 198. Still not bad...

    According to the website, it is 3 Last (73) - Fullest girth measurement with a tapered toe and more room over the instep.

    Of course, being a strapped shoe, you should be able to adjust to your liking within reason. My understanding is that it runs slightly large, but you are probably best off sticking to your true size.

    I would like to know how those brown-looking shell macneils look like. I'm not a 10D so I won't pull the trigger. I know, I'm shoe crazy.

    I am an 8D in the 5 last, I sized up to 8.5D in the 1 last. My Leeds will be here tomorrow and should be able to tell you how they fit.

    I do already had Dalton in 8D and ended up selling it because the narrow width really hurt my toes, wore them a bunch of times and they never got any more comfortable. Decided the 1 last would either be and 8E or 8.5D.

    Brown Fifth Streets at the courthouse today. I haven't worn these but only a few times, and not for probably a year. This is a way under rated boot.

    Interesting.

    If you were to size up or down. Do you guys generally size up or size down from the 5-last to the 1-last?

    @Cold Iron how old are the Leeds? Just wanted to know how long I'd have to wait until my #8 turn brownish. I love this color.
