So what have people done for their cordovan special makeups so far? I'm interested in perhaps doing the Cornwallis in burgundy shell... but I don't know my size in that last yet - I only have experience with the 5, 8 and 1 lasts.
I am always amazed by the creativity of SF members.
Hah- I have this conversation weekly with my wife. She claims all my shoes "look the same". I proceed to explain to her the difference between blucher vs. balmoral; plain toe vs. cap toe. vs. brogue; shortwing vs. longwing; shell vs calf, etc. Her eyes just glaze over in defeat...works every time.
Oxblood was a tad too light and flashy for me so I let some renouvateur sit in the leather for 20 min and hit the shoes with some merlot Polish. Loving these so far...they are at the right height so they did not bother my ankles during the break-in stage like my fifth street and dundees did.
Slowly building up my shell collection during these sales. My humble count is up to 4. I hope to add a pair or 2 more in a lighter walnut/whiskey shade and I'll be good. The Dundees are my latest acquisition.
Snuff suede Amoks I picked up a few years back for $99. I haven't bought any AE lately but I'm patiently awaiting oxblood Dalton's from this sale. I wish I lived in a place where the weather is like fall in the Northeast year-round so I can wear boots more often!
Have a blessed Sunday ya'll
