    Makes sense. I was still new to the whole welted shoe concept when I ordered mine and I think I misinterpreted the sizing instruction given by the SA. I ordered a half size up when i obviously should have went down, resulting in a difference of a full size. AE natty shell is beautiful and mine had exposed brass eyes. Loved them but a full size too large was simply too much to overcome.

    I've still got 2 AE natty's and they are some of my favorites. Trust me when I tell you that yours are only going to get better. Looking forward to seeing pic's as they age.

    Agreed. So not shell. VERY obvious by the creasing of the vamp. Shell rolls; you'll never see what you see here.
