    A couple of years ago, I asked Nick at Horween about Shell leather - he said that the leather they use is a byproduct of the food industry - so, no, they aren't using the leather from horses that have simply died of old age or sickness

    Rancourts provide more arch support than Quoddys - I have a pair of each and find the Rancourts more comfortable
    Both make nice looking, quality boat shoes

    Have a cobbler do it or do it yourself with coarse sandpaper. I have removed dark edging before, but not on 8 chukkas.

    Go ahead and post!

    Also, do you use shoe trees?

    Finally, I like the suggestion of wearing something stiff over the tendon the crease bites into. I also find if you move more vigorously (I'm not saying play a game of football, but maybe some brisk walking/turning) the break in procedure can accelerate due to the increased pressures/forces on the shoe).

    I don't think so. I just placed my pre-order today for the pitt boots and the #8 wingtips and was told they have been extremely busy lately and are backed up on answering emails. I would advise calling them.
