Well done. I actually unscrew the cap with the built-in foam applicator and put it directly on a horsehair dauber; this seems to work better than the foam applicator. I agree that the AE premium paste is good stuff; I have it in chestnut, chili, mocha, and walnut for my various AEs. I typically give them a bit of love with Saphir Renovateur, then follow up with a dab of the AE premium paste. The exception is for my black calf, on which I use black Saphir Medaille...
Congratulations on your status as an anomaly...
If you go to the AE website and look at the user reviews, the Strand runs long and narrow; sizing up on this particular shoe is a mistake.
I, like you, am a 9.5 / 10 depending on brand, last, etc. I also have wide feet. I ordered walnut Strands in 10 EEE and ended up having to go down to 9.5 EEE. The 9.5s fit great.The funny thing about the 5 last is I have a pair of McTavish, another shoe made on the 5 last, in 9 EEE and they fit just like my Strands in 9.5. My advice, particularly because you are close to a 10, would be to order the Strand in 9.5 EE. Keep in mind that if you order them online during...

The site is back up...the chart says to get Large trees for 11.5 D.

This story on the web shows well-preserved boots at the site of the Titanic: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/upshot/titanic-photo-shows-evidence-human-remains-182105169.html With all due respect to the deceased, I can't help but wonder if they are John Lobbs.
Agreed. What surprised me, however, is that although they are supposedly made on the same last (5-65) I had to size down 1/2 size on the Ridgeway / McTavish compared to my Strands...and they're still slightly longer than the Strands.
My black Ridgeways went back as well; hence the new McTavish...which I think I'm more pleased about anyway!
