The new rack looks awesome! I agree that the plastic/metal stands that are commonly available are crap. The rack you have looks like it could be extended vertically, if needed. Would you mind sharing the cost, and the split between labor and wood?Also, do you only wear boots? I don't see any shoes in the pic
Good to know, thanks. There's a lot of info on shell care in general, but not a lot on conditioning vintage shell. I bought a used pair of Florsheim Imperials. Not sure I'm going to keep it, but either way I'd like to do whatever I can to reduce any chances of it drying out and cracking or whatever old shell does!
