    Going to grab a pair of brown cordovan PA's but was hoping the sale would be slightly better. Still hitting myself for missing out on walnut cordovan strands.

    The sale is a bit of a let down, i'll admit that. I would be interested in the cordovan Park Ave's, McAllister, Positano, maybe the New Orleans, but that's it. No belts that i want are on sale, but at least i can pick up some of the ceder products on discount. I do need a new tie rack...

    I put in a quote this morning for the black cordovan PA's and should be able to order them this afternoon from the military exchange. And a pair of burgundy cordovan Cambridge. Really was a tough decision for me. I have a pair of black calf Leeds but seldom wear them. I only wear the Leeds for black shoe events which are rare for me. Not sure if it is because of the black color or the fact that I wore nothing but the equivalent of a black Leed for 20 years. I'm hoping the black PA's will break that trend.

    My first pick was the brown cordovan PA's and still wish I could talk myself into them over the black....

    Does anyone know what the difference is between the Cambridge and the McCallister besides the color and leather selection? Are they essentially the same shoe besides that? They seem to both be on the 5-65 last too.

    You must post pics of the Neumora -- I'm looking forward to seeing them, especially with pants!!

    \

    I believe the only difference is the leather - but I'm happy to be corrected...

    Speaking McCallister/Cambridge -- the McCallisters on sale for $245 is a nice deal...the question is whether or not I see if I can hold out for the Cambridge to get on sale....hmm!

    If they have another Shell sale we're better off waiting for that and just paying an extra $50 for shell Cambridges at $299 rather than the $245 they have the McCallisters for. At $245 we're better off getting them from allaboutshoes if you can wait.

    Same last, same design on the upper. Cambridge is made of shell cordovan and has a double-oak Rendenbach sole with a dovetailed heel, McAllister is made of calfskin and has a single-oak AE sole with a rubber toplift.


    I'm not sure how often (if ever again) the $399 (for firsts) shell sale will happen again. I think the general consensus is that they were trying to clear out some inventory, in preparation for going to a made-to-order approach to shell cordovan shoes going forward.

    The shell seconds are the ones that were $299.

    Ok, guys. Pulled the trigger on some Sheltons for $169. First big surprise: free shipping! I thought there was a standard $10 or $15 charge when having shoes shipped from the outlets. First time ordering 2nds. I tried to get some shell leeds 2nds when they had their last sale but they were out in my size. :(. Wish me luck that I'll get some good ones.

    I'll post some pix and overall experience when I get them.
