The hate part of my love / hate relationship with shell isn't informed by these two points - though they are entirely valid from a subjective perspective.I don't know if this will help you, but I don't care for shell footwear, and consequently don't buy it. Two reasons:
1. On me they wear too warm and they don't "breath" well either.
2. I don't care for their characteristic creasing.
