    Is there a group MTO for the Red Adelaide?

    I was just on skoaktiebloget.com and the comments suggested there was a group MTO happening for this model.

    I have to say they did a nice job on the split toe since shell is a tough material to do that work. Wear in good health!

    It was my group-buy. I advertised it everywhere, sorry you didn't see it. We ended up on the Simpson last. There were 4 votes for either way and one vote for Simpson.

    Briefly considered getting a pair of these myself. Did you by chance purchase them from Brogue in Geneva?

    Thank you for the comments. They were purchased at Carmina on Gran Via. About 3 hours after my arrival.

    I had been thinking about that style, but not in shell. I'm not a shell fanatic (yet). They had this model in 11.5 (i'm a 12), and he said in shell you want to go half size smaller.

    Fit was great and it was last one I think, was reduced from 550€ to 300€.

    That's almost cheap enough to count as robbery. Good find, mate.
