    Do only have one pair of AE's, the Leeds. They are US 8.5. My Rain lasted Carminas are UK 8.

    I'm sure with all the MTO talk everyone is over this style, but AE Strands eat your heart out...Carmina cognac calf on the Inca last.

    Just ordered the navy shell wingtip MTO and would to know what kind of Shapir polish and conditioner to use? Also, this is my first pair of shell shoes, is there a thread that describes how to care for shell?

    shoesnlife, those cognac perf captoe ankle boots and the navy loafers are absolutely gorgeous! You're off to a good start.
