    I've really enjoyed all the pics of the black shell and these nst lace ups especially stand out in part because they look almost gunmetal gray, even green.

    Is that the light creating that effect or have you actually noticed a change in the color? I'm debating on whether or not to leave some shell shoes out in the sun..

    Black shell is great. I have a few of the exact same models in whiskey shell and black shell (and other colors). With the exception of the LHS, I would part with my whiskey before my black.

    You've likely already seen this, but...

    ...Horween warns that it is likely to expose imperfections that were hidden in the dying process. I surmise that shells that have been chosen to be dyed black are those with the worst imperfections.

    Totally disagree. But to each their own.

    read that article before, really interesting.

    could somebody explain the following quote to me (as if i am a 12 yr old)

    Quote: in the comments (from 2010) he talks about a polish / conditioner product for shell that they have 98% ready .... did anything come of this?

    So I tried on the Marlow today. I also tried the C&J Cardiff. Seems they are on the same last (325). Both are to long and thin in the toe area. To bad since I really like the shoes. Is the alden 975 wider and blunter in the toe?
