Thanks so much for the kind emails and compliments!  A few ‘overheards’ and mailed reactions:

They’re pretty spectacular—probably the coolest looking slip-ons I’ve ever seen. Nice classic shape, too. The 9 ½ in this model is bang-on; the fit is very comfortable.

I really like them. I don’t have a pair of unlined slip-ons in a cordo color, and I like the fit and color better than the ***** #8s.

I’m really pleased with the shell chukkas

Let’s see ***** do this!
