    You clearly have the shoe care routine down. Well done.

    Have to say... I'm pretty bummed about missing the recent NRO code. I know they are knuckleheads (and I probably just got lucky), but last time I got my 8.5E suede chukkas in a week for a ridiculous price. It's worth a try at 25% off for something you'd be buying anyway.

    Yes I do. These shoes have never been waxed or reno'd even once in their life. Just brush- wear- let dry for 24 hours- brush- shoetree- in shoebag and box- into cabinet.

    I had the promotional code and 25% queued up and ready to go at work; 9901's (Black Sheel PTB) for $468. Decided to wait to get home and use an AM EX gift card. An hour later at home the promotional code was rejected. I called NRO and they said the promotion was only supposed to be for outerwear. So for those of you who pulled the trigger before the glitch was fixed, congrats and good luck!

    Black shell always looks fantastic. Beautiful pair of boots

    They will look even better with the shell rolls and folds :nodding:

    A few picture that I couldn't upload earlier. These shoes have never been waxed in or conditioned in over a 100 wearings over the last 15 months. Just brushed and cared for with shoe trees and stored in shoe bags.

    These are great. If I were going to get a pair of black shell, I think they would be wingtip boots or NST boots.

    I have responded to their email (about the shoes being 16+ weeks from delivery) saying I would like to cancel the order, and I just left a voicemail saying the same, since no one answered their customer service number (big surprise). I will be following up tomorrow. Even if they did have them available and I was able to get them at 25% off, I'm not sure the corresponding stress with ordering from them is worth it.
