    I got my second MTO today and wish I had Allison watch over the order, instead of making it through a store. They failed QC once and the pair I got in the post today should have failed also. I am hoping to get them redone properly. I just hope my shell MacNeils are made much better and in a more timely manner. 4 months to get a shoes that is inferior quality is not good.

    My Dundee and Leeds were on the same schedule. I just got my Dundees so I assume my Leeds did not pass inspection the first time around, either. Interesting.

    Is AE all out of walnut shell or is it some left?

    Also, how much would an MTO shell Bayfield cost for those who did them? I already ordered a pair for $167 so it's kinda hard to beat the value of those, but they look so sexy in shell.

    Has anyone posted any pictures of Leeds in cappuccino? I recall a cappuccino makeup in the Rawlins I believe, but not a Leeds.

    Yeah, felt that with a staple shoe like that I should have two pairs so that if one is off getting repaired I'll still have a pair of black cap toes. They're also different sized pairs, one is 12D and the other 11.5E. Got them both early on when I was trying to figure out what size I was.

    Since they're calf leather, I would expect them to stretch a bit more. My Strand's lacing gap was like your E pair too when I got them, but they were very comfortable so I decided to get them anyway. This is probably the 7th time I've worn them, and this is how the gap looks now:

    I have the brown Strand. Very nice shoe and I really like that color.

    They look like brown shells to me.
