+1 we sell tons of them and never got a complaint about how quickly they wear.To the OP are you sure they are authentic Dainite?I'm seeing more and more knock-offs not nearly the quality though...
I understand. But with exotics it's not always about the last.. Sometimes it's about the skin. You've got to see them for yourself, then comment.
Don't know what that color is called. I have hunch AE will be introducing more shell varieties.
That's a safe method.I have found Afta to be the most effective product in a case like this.Another product that I recently started using has me impressed. Saphir R'eno 'Mat.Most edge dressings are oil based. That's difficult to remove as it's almost as stong as dye.If you are going to use that Bengal-stripe's advice is excellent except if you get to much dressing on the tape it could bleed through into the upper. So, still take caution.It's much safer to use an water...
AE conditioner and polish.
If used correctly, same results. Pledge has more oil in it. It's a one step but more work. Also better chance of collecting grim on patent..
I try to avoid sandpaper and agree w/Ron on the steel wool. The Corthay's came out great though. Nice job. Another method for the OP is a black crayon. Melt the tip. While the wax is wet, apply it to the gouges. Let set until barely soft. Take the back of a spoon and rub the the area to level out the high edges. Polish. This process takes some perfecting so you may need some practice. Once you get the technique down it yields great results. You can use it with many colors...
Try some Venetian cream. Works great on bookbinder and cordovan finishes/leathers.
