    Same Pair, but now the (seamless) backside, showcasing the beautiful glow of whiskey shell.

    Happy Tuesday forum pals. After 28 years, these vintage shell Florsheims finally made it out of the box and into the wild.

    Great looking backside! You are looking good coming or going.

    4+ year old Dundees, I really like the color variation as they age:

    These are staggering. Do you have any idea how difficult that is to achieve with shell cordovan?

    Truly, truly, we have witnessed utter mastery here. Thank you for sharing.

    I am assuming Vass?

    Cheers!

    Many many thanks! Love how your Dundees are aging.

    Indeed they are Vass! When I MTOd I thought it was just wishful thinking to do a shell seamless heel. But they replied "No Problem!"
