$1,450. :rotflmao:

Just so people know... Tumbled Shell Cordovan is about $38/sq. ft. vs. the ~$100/sq. ft. of non-tumbled shell cordovan and the plating process certainly doesn't add enough labor to warrant moving that price per square foot above $100/sq. ft.

I like the nattys and plaintoe over the itty bitty committee captoes on the color 8. 1450 better not be the new rare shell price moving forward though....

Definitely a shame, I actually really like the Color #8 pair, I think the natural pair looks a little weird with all the wrinkling with the PT design, but the price just takes them out of consideration for me. Hard sell at the $1,100 range, very difficult sell at the $1,300 range, impossible sell at the $1,500 range.

Just think of it as 400$ boot trees!

Posting for the first time in a long time to say... $1,450? Get the fuck out of here. Seriously. Get out.
Isn't that similar to what they charged for the tumbled black she'll a couple of years ago?

Lol they look like shell boots that someone beat up and stripped the shine off of, for 1450! If you love the look then I guess more power to you, but I hope this isn’t a sign that the new monthly shell drop has been raised from 1290...
