I have seen a fair amount of hate here for Johnston and Murphy and Cole Hahn, but I am on a budget and that's what I am stuck with.   I was shining the shoes yesterday.  I noticed that the leather on a cheap pair of Bostonian wingtips I bought three  years ago seemed almost plastic.  I did not seem to absorb the polish and instead seemed to repel it.  Nonetheless, they look fine and are comfortable.
