I don’t think it’s happening, shell promo still on. Be surprised if they did again before end of the year. The time has been extended to 60 days advisory too. I await in anticipation my shell Calway and when they arrive they arrive. Whole new me...😂
They're 200$ more expensive now though, I don't think they're on promotion anymore, just still available.

This is weird. Maybe not lasted tightly when made?
I took it to my local cobbler and he said that the leather was stretched too much and not lasted properly. Might be a quality control problem as my black pair with exact same last and size is perfectly fine.

I am shipping around for a new Chelsea boots and only really tried RM Williams and they I look like a clown wearing their 9F which is my perfect size. Their boots looks a bit too rugged. I am looking for something more formal looking with round toe such as Carmina Inca Chelsea's. Please let me know if you have any experiences with both RM Williams and Carmina or any other brands you would suggest. Thanks in advance :)

Brand new pair and only been wearing indoor while wfh for couple of times and it looks like the inside left shoe leather is deformed and loose. The right pair is totally fine with no creasing.

What would you do or anyone know how to fix this issue? This pair actually fits very snug so I don't understand how there is such a loose leather on the left shoe.

Glad to hear you find out what's happening. Would be nice to clarify that these are Vass, right? Saw this post in that thread too. Otherwise you will only make some posters here think they are Carmina and that they are lasting them incorrectly. :lol:

I don't have much experience with Carmina's Shell MTO events, but how/when would I be able to put in an order for a pair of Chelsea's similar to this beautiful pair. Any info would be appreciated.

You can go do it now and pay the upcharge. Historically they have offered 2x/yr where they waive the fees.

They won't do a wholecut Chelsea in shell, so make sure you didn't pick that model number
They did a brief special SF promo for shell Chelseas (Shelseas?) last year. I don’t recall many taking them up on the offer, though I did score one in the outlet. I suppose if you begged and pleaded and have a relatively smaller size they might make an exception. Worth trying anyway.

Those weren't wholecuts, AFAIK.
