    The shells for 250 were indeed listed in error. I spoke to the rep online via chat and she said that they pulled it down as soon as they realized the mistake and that no orders would be fulfilled at that price.

    I think they're talking about Dalton (AE shell boots) vs. Lindrick (CJ for RL shell boots). Not DaRlton.

    Several people had their order go through. Mine did as well. I have a confirmation number and it is listed on the website as backordered. I know others have already gotten shipping confirmation on theirs. I'm hopeful that mine will ship soon. If not then I understand because $250 is obviously way below what these shoes would normally sell for.

    You may be right and hopefully for a few lucky ones this will go through. But just from what I was told by the online chat rep- all orders at that price will not be fulfilled.

    I suppose if you were in the first few it might slip through but I have a strong feeling they will end up sending an apology email for the error. Good luck to those who got a shipping confirmation though!

    Speaking of the Dalton, can anyone speak to the quality of the boot and the shell that AE uses?

    I have the Lindrick and the cordovan boot that C&J makes for BB; am thinking of buying anther cordovan boot and have been quoted what seems like a decent price on it.

    Thanks again for the tip. Not sure if they will honor the price, but at least I have an order number because of your suggestion.

    PipersSon: AE uses Horween, no questions about quality -- top-notch, as always. If you happen to come across a pair with second-grade material, I'm sure AE will exchange your pair. Their customer service is superb.

    I was able to see the Walnut Shell Strands and Daltons today at Allen Edmonds in San Francisco. The color itself is a bit darker than Whiskey but still very nice. The quality of the finished product is what you would expect from AE. I had already ordered a pair of the Strands and decided to stick with the order after having seen them in person. I ended speaking with the assistant manager of the store (Keven) about a possible MTO group buy. I really like their new Fifth Street balmoral boot and think it would be awesome to have it done in their Brown Shell Cordovan with a natural or antiqued edge trim. I'll post in the AE appreciation thread and see if there is any interest in having this made up.




    I hope they own their mistake and do the right thing by their customers.
