I had no problems getting lots of gloss out of my #8 boots, treated with SnoSeal (used ala Crane's method, similar to Obenauf's):       I still hold that most people over-think it when it comes to shoe care; it's pretty hard to mess up leather in my experience.
  The Crane's Method of SnoSeal-ing: http://www.styleforum.net/t/163864/wolverine-1000-mile-boot-review/100_100#post_3732089   I use the oven to bake on lowest setting (150-170 F) for 8-10 minutes to warm the leather, as opposed to using a hair-dryer like above.   Follow-Up with occasional boot-oil or leather conditioner of your choice. Some examples:   - Filson Boot Oil - Montana Pitch Blend - Venetian Shoe Cream - Neatsfoot Oil - Obenauf's - Lexol     This info really...
  Wearing all American today.
Carmina Rain is basically perfect:       All Carmina lasts are pretty damn good.   Alden Plaza   Alfred Sargent 98 & 104   Anything from JL, G&G, C&J, EG, Vass, et al. are all just a little off for me.
  LOL. The gf got me some of the Defender, too! I'm going to try it on my Aldens.        Nice! My CXL 1K's are due for something. I'll give it a try, thanks.
The MTO's I ordered 5 months ago have been lost by FedEx, according to Pepe. I am crushed.
  My gf got me some Saphir Reno for the holidays; loving the luster it creates.
  I lace it all the way up, then wrap around between the top and one-down speed-hook (if that makes sense at all). I use 72" leather laces on all my boots.     It's Chromexcel in the Color 8 finish. The only Shell #8 Wolverine boot was the now extinct 721 LTD.   If you want some luster, try SnoSeal then Kiwi - worked for me!       I had RW Beckman's (new GT's) in 9.5. They were slightly large, but then I got used to them. I have Wolverine's in 9 and they are perfect. I...
  I'm not sure how that'd be possible.
    bespoken4me, I appreciate your first-hand experience.   I have had no such ill-effects using Lexol or Kiwi on my shell shoes. I've even SnoSealed my shell boots, the heresy!   Shell is still vegetable tanned leather, after-all, and can basically be treated in the same fashion.   Nick V. made a post once to avoid Lexol, but made no follow-up comments of substantiation, that I know of.   Regarding...
