@AzumiI saw that too, good share. Has anyone actually done the prescribed routine? I just can't imagine needing to do that much to the shoe. **Stop reading now if you don't want to hear an opinion** My pairs get a lot of use, most that are over a year old have been resoled and all I have ever needed to do is bush after every wear, condition if they seem dry (although I was told not to by Phillip!), and then just add a little wax and buff along won't bring the shine back.
I have this exact pair with a toe medallion, great pair, enjoy! [[SPOILER]]

 This is the first time I've worn through the sole.  I was also surprised it was nearly the same place, the same amount and the same day.   I really like their service overall so I'm looking forward to the attention my pair will get.   I seem to remember Phillip having so much pride in their repair shop he recommended that I send my other pairs there for service instead of back to their manufacturer!   I was impressed.  unfortunately the only other pairs I have are GY...
