    In response to the poster who wants to wear Daltons in the snow, I would also love to do the same, but what stops me is the fact that they have leather soles. First of all, you will destroy the sole very quickly. Second, once you get inside, you will slip and slide all over the place. I always go with a rubber sole in the rain and snow here in NJ. Thankfully, we don;t get a ton of snow.

    I had a local cobbler put a topy on the boots, one with a fairly aggressive tread, so slipping is not an issue at all. Im mostly concerned about the uppers, but after seeing how they bounced back today, I think that they will be able to take to such conditions well.

    Can someone explain how the 1 last fits compared to the 5 last. I am considering purchasing a pair of Long branch boots but am unable to try anything on. I am a 9E in my fifth avenues which fit very well. What size would you suggest in the Long Branch boot?

    You should probably try 9.5D first. This said, however, I would also consider 9.5E if you intend to wear them with a thicker sock.

    Thoughts on the Brentwood oxfords? There is a pair on eBay I have my eye on. I know that AE does not manufacture them anymore, but they seem like a handsome, if relatively basic/boring, look.

    Cappuccino Shell Jeffersons. Started the Mac Break-in method on my Cap Shell Jeffersons today at work. The lambskin lining is much softer and more comfortable than I remembered when I tried on a regular pair at the store. Hope that you enjoy!

    So you can wear your shell boots in the snow. Of course you can!

    The issue is what you want out of them and potentially picking the right tool for the job. Wolverines are work boots and should be treated with obenaufs. I wouldn't do that to my daltons. I can't afford to throw down for another pair like some posters can, so I have other beater boots.

    Why not pick the right tool for the job? Carry the boots with you to work and switch out of your tims/bean boots/whatever when you get there. I don't baby my shoes, but I'm definitely going to reach for a different pair of shoes to wear to work if it's going to be raining/snowing the entire way. Or I'll wear the daltons and catch the bus to the subway station instead of walking through the muck.

    Gorgeous.

    I was wondering if the toe of your shoes is a little more squishy that your calf or non independence shells. I asked this question regarding my MTO strands a few pages back, but no responses. The toe seems pretty flexible which seems odd to me and I thought maybe it has to do with the lining. Thanks!
