I received the dark chocolate Daltons today that I ordered through the shoe bank tent sale last week. I can find no major points of concern. I see some minor orange peel effect in the finish of the right toe where the medallion is, and there is a minor pucker in the left toe where the upper is stitched to the welt, but these flaws are hardly noticeable. I feel like these are keepers and I got a good deal. I think that I 'almost' could have sized down 1/2 size and picked up the pair of walnut shell Daltons they had, but I'm wearing thin socks today and I want to be able to wear heavier socks in the winter with these boots. I'm confident that they will serve me well.
