    Wow. Those are really cool. Keeping them clean is going to suck though. They don't sell white polish, do they?

    I bought my Walnut Shell Daltons during that web gem. I already had walnut calf strands so I didn't purchase the shell strands. Probably one of my biggest shoe regrets.

    I recently purchased the AE Hanover in black calf and liked them so much I decided to see if they could make them in a burgundy shell cordovan. It's obvious they don't offer these on the website MTO, so I called my local AE store (New Orleans) and inquired about the possibility. Robin, the mgr, had to inquire with the factory, and called me back within 10 mins with good news! 6 weeks later I got them! I've had them 2 weeks and 4 wears later here's what they look like. I had heard that she'll was difficult to make in a whole cut, but these are perfect! Nothing has touched them other than a brush! 8th AE, 2nd shell cordovan. Very pleased! [​IMG]

    Those are very cool shoes. I was wondering how they would crease as a whole cut design. I am really impressed that AE was able to do a whole cut in Shell Cordovan just due to the size of a piece of shell. Curious, what size they are. I imagine that the largest sizes would not be able to do that just because Shell isn't that big, but I could be wrong. Most PTBs are actually essentially just one piece of shell as well, and various manufacturers make those as standard shell designs.

    Looks like you just went standard Hanover with just a Shell upper (I.e. No rolled edges or Independence Lining, etc).

    I'm a 9.5 D. Nothing extra on the linings, I just went with the standard on the sole and heels as well. When I have them recrafted I'll for sure go with the Dainite sole.

    So white pebble... Are they unlined like regular Neumoks? How is the fit compared to those suede AS's you are selling?

    About those wholecuts, is it me or does the chisel toe look a bit more round than the standard calf offering?

    They're actually not. I own both and they are exactly the same.

    Very nice! Did you ask for the full rubber heel? I thought the indpendence outsole had a dovetail heel.

    Yes I did ask for a full rubber heel because my walking pattern wears out the heel exceptionally fast. The "AE TOPLIFT" is the code for this option.

    I have natty CXL with natural welt and red Dainite due hopefully in the next few weeks. I think yours will be a great casual makeup.
