    Do you have more of the shearling lined Clark in UK7? Sold out insanely quickly...

    @Leaves any more plans for more Löf & Tung shell?

    Maybe a boot?

    When do you expect restock of some of the CS Jumper Boots in Coimbra that are listed as "waiting list" ?

    Ok the Löf & Tung Aldrin Dark Cognac Cordovan shoes showed up today.
    • Excellent packaging, on par with shoes costing more
    • Some of the best shoe bags I have seen, very nice
    • Polishing cloth included, nice as this is sometimes omitted even with brands costing more
    • Excellent build quality again on par with brands costing more.
      • Nice neat stitching
      • Precision cuts
      • Sharp perforations in the broguing
    • Really a great pair of shell shoes for the given price
    • Fit on par with sites suggestions
    Personal thoughts
    • At least initially really liking the S last fit (only wearing an hour but great for me)
    • Excellent toe room good for me as my right big toe rubs on many lasts
    • Great overall fit for my foot
    • Can easy see myself going for these more often than others
    Only issue I see, I only buy shell shoes and this is the only model and only color that Löf & Tung makes, so very limited options for me.

    @007Bond Those look unreal.
    So jealous.
    I messaged you when there looked to be a 9.0 uk in stock (I thought you bought a 9.5). Either that’s the pair you bought, or someone else did bc I went back to the site to buy them yesterday and they were gone—only a 9.5. Heartbreaking.
    Yours look amazing though!

    Ah my friend I too am UK9 so that pair is the one in my pics. Hopefully @Leaves does a restock and also in diff colors as still wearing them (liking them so much I just got back from a 20 min walk in the neighborhood) and they feel already broken in, so much want more in other colors. What a great shoe.

    @007Bond lovely shoes. If you only buy shell, you should utilize the MTO program and see what else you can create.

    One of the reasons I only buy shell is it limits my addiction to a limited selection. If I were to buy every shoe I actually liked (besides shell) oh my the space I would need. So since most companies have a limited shell selection that keeps my addiction under some control. If I were to open up my addiction to MTO, it would be a choice, divorce vs shoes...

    Löf & Tung needs it's own variant of the Cordovan Long Wing Blucher!

    I've just been admiring those shell Aldrin's myself, very nice.

    I hadn't realised only size 9.5 is left. Damn.

    The Irwin would be great in cordovan... You can get one as a MTO though!

    Is there an option for Navy shell - I think that model would look good with that plus an antique or light edge trim..

    Hi @Leaves - Any update on the L-Last and the above model? They're very handsome and would nicely fill my need for a black dress shoe.

    Thank you.

    I am up for any shell make ups, the Kingsley is available in Shell (modified version with a cap toe instead of the faux cap toe). We have a GMTO in production that I think will look amazing.

    Incoming within a couple of week.

    Thanks for sharing and the great review/feedback. More shell make ups are incoming!

    Agreed. Currently looking to find some Navy Shell.

    Has been sent back to be made up with more arch support. Toe shape is spot on, just needs some minor fitting adjustments now.
