    I told you navy shell wouldn't work.

    you guys need to get this boot before I order another and deplete their navy shell. this pair is on Carmina "Dainite" and I imagine it would look better on a leather sole-perhaps with a natural edge trim?

    Would love to take complete credit but Thinkderm was influential. I actually ordered a burgundy boot but then switched it over to Navy. Thanks again, brah :fistbump:

    Thanks for the shout. I'd have done these without danite.

    Natural edge with trim, double to single sole, navy shell upper is what I recommend.

    leather becomes slippery when wet. from experience, dainite is certified slip-(booze)proof

    Have you had storms?

    It is definitely stay inside weather here in Atlanta - pehaps up to 103 today. My heart goes out to anyone who doesn't have access to air conditioning. On the positive side my housecats LOVE the heat - they lay about on the balcony happily roasting like pigs on a spit.

    I'm cleaning my sock drawer today - the air is charged with excitement! :nodding:

    Was in the Mediterranean when it went well over 100+ in NYC last week. Still feeling some of the lingering heat though. I definitely miss hot weather with no humidity though.

    Gdot: with hot weather I guess you won't have any need for shell bal boots. :)

    There is nothing I can say about those that has not been said earlier and better by others, but... DAMN. That might be the most perfect footwear ever for anything that involves the wearing of trousers.

    The time is now to prepare for fall/winter. :fence:

    But yes, in Atlanta in general there is a fairly limited time frame in which shell bal boots are appropriate. Thus I own none at the moment.
