    Depends on how much you are willing to pay. The leather/dovetail combo will surely cost you more than the all rubber. You will also need to specify to the cobbler. If you are really particular you can also specify a JR dovetail heel replacement which is even more.

    In case you couldn't tell, I prefer boots to shoes. If they ever offer the Daltons in Black, Merlot or two-tone calf, I'm screwed.

    What is a JR dovetail heel? Also are there any advantages to having dovetail heels? I don't think I really care one way or the other for the heel
    . However, I do really like the topy on the forefoot to prevent slipping.

    I am checking into the details of walnut shell cordovan availability, ordering process, and timeline. I will update this thread and each of the individuals who are interested (via PM) as soon as I have something definitive.

    JR is a company that specializes in leather soles.

    Not sure if it is any cheaper, but there is probably an option for a regular combination heel. It lacks the dovetail aspect.

    There is no advantage per se, other than aesthetics I suppose. If you are going to topy the forefoot, you might as well go with the full rubber heel.

    OK. enough people are doing this now that I am going to comment. Placing sales in the regular threads is against the rules. If someone reports this to a moderator, you will get banned. This belongs in the classifieds. Now, you can link your ad in your signature, and people can see what you have for sale every time you post.

    I also prefer boots to shoes. All my AE's and Aldens are boots except for a pair of walnut Strands. And you might be screwed double-time. Have you checked out the burgundy (sort of dark merlot) shell Daltons? I have a pair and they are very nice. I just find I don't wear them as much as my other boots as they're quite dressy imo.
