    Black and Navy shell service boots were both 1100. Walnut would be at least that

    Thinking if I want navy, I might go with the midnight reverse kudu. Problem is I need a half size because of my wide feet. I wonder how much these would stretch if I went with a half size down...

    The just making up the prices thing bothers me. 10% is material. Can get away with it when you're only selling 15 I guess.

    It just depends which shoemaker you get a pair of shells from.

    My Rider, Edward Green, and St Crispins shells where all more than this pair.

    I'm pretty sure i only ever said "around $1000" or "just over $1000", but if i mislead anyone i apologize. Technically speaking this boot should have been a bit more than the Black version because of the lining.



    It's definitely more obviously blue in natural light. It's a very wearable colour.



    The studio lighting tends to be a little flat and i try not to alter the colour of the product shots for consistency's sake. The photo on the homepage and in this thread is the exact same boot and gives a better idea of what colour to expect in natural light. The shells are already at the factory and this sample was cut from the same batch, so the the production run will be essentially identical. I'm not sure whether you're referring to the raw costs of cordovan or the price of our boots, but i can assure you this thread or any other perceived demand has absolutely 0 bearing on our pricing. The raw material costs on a cordovan boot made in our factory with our components is higher than the retail price of many other brands.

    Yeah you might be able to pay less for some others, but it usually even cost more for Alden shells when compared to Allen Edmonds. But I have to say it's always been worth that little extra premium to me. I've yet to be disappointed.

    This is so far from the truth i don't even know where to begin. 10% would hardly cover the internal materials on any of our boots.

    10% is a material difference, i.e. its significant, not talking about the cost of materials, I completely agree that wouldn't come close.
