    It came up in the Thrift Bragging thread today about ID'ing Shell. I asked if there was a list and was directed over to the AskAny forum where a thread was started for a list of Shell shoes. I have updated that list into a Google doc speadsheet and the link is below. This document is open to everyone and can be edited by everyone so please feel free to contribute. Thanks. I hope this works as I have planed.

    I think I saw somewhere that Vass, Carmina, and Gieves and Hawkes (Cheaney) do shell too.

    Nice list. Not sure where you want to add it but Florshiem Duckie Brown has a bunch of shell shoes, long wings, short wings and some boots.

    Ralph Lauren had a shell george boot "Garran" and a moc toed chukka "Gifford" that I don't see on there as well.

    this is basically an impossible task. you want a list of every shoe ever created in shell by any maker, in every variation?

    I'll just add the AE info is wrong on there. they still use cognac shell, which is the same thing as the brown shell on the Strands

    they also used to use black cherry shell. I have an old Bristol in black cherry

    I'm just trying to consolidate all the vast information from the great SF community into one place. The list is actually taken from a Ask Andy Thread and was put into a better more usable format that everyone can edit and update instead of a thread with multiple pages and tons of scrolling. I personally have very little knowledge of shell shoes so can't add more to the topic except for trying to get the ball rolling and putting together an initial Google document spreadsheet that can be updated. If this is a crappy idea i guess it won't go anywhere or get used. Just trying to help the forum in a positive way.

    If the AE info is wrong, can you edit the list and correct it? [​IMG]

    I think this could be the start of something good.
