Yes and they say it means breathability and comfortableness.
Below would be one pea size dab.http://www.boq.jp/shoes/shoecare/05/index.htmThe following experiment was done by NHK (Japan's national public broadcasting organization). (Unfortunately youtube is a dead link. http://www.wretch.cc/blog/yisa/5817042)An excessive amount of Kiwi polish was applied on the right shoe (red label), a minimum amount of Kiwi polish on the left shoe (blue label).After 5 min jogging, both shoes were put into a plastic box and humidity inside each...
A dictionary for conservators says "cedarwood oil provides protection against mold growth and insect attack".http://cool.conservation-us.org/don/dt/dt2026.html
I could find "The flexibility of finishing", but unfortunately this was not a straight/proper answer.http://www.tfl.com/web/eng/thema-1_33648.aspxMy hypothesis is like this. A black calf is usually a box calf which is glazed/heavily pressed with a glazing jack, so it has a tight/hard grain. On the other hand, a brown calf is usually unglazed burnished/milled calf, so it has a soft grain. A tight/hard grain might be fragile compared to a soft grain. Besides, hard carnauba...
I'm curious about what kind of oils (& waxes) Horween applies on shell.http://www.selectism.com/2012/05/04/inside-horween-leather-shot-by-nick-horween/"Vegetal tanned" is not in ASTM D1517-06 Standard Terminology Relating to Leather and DICTIONARY of terms used in the HIDES, SKINS, AND LEATHER TRADE, so it seems not to be a technical term.BTW, here are examples of natural and chemical materials for shoe...
I read "functional", but it was too abstract for me to understand. Now I understand discussion here with the author is essential for you.My view is this: When I read your opinion quoted by someone on another forum, if its source is given, its credibility isn't lost. I think non-experts may have a conversation with experts but that non-experts cannot have a discussion with experts, so I accept inconsistent experts' opinions as they are. You may think I denied your opinion,...
I'm anonymous, but owner of each excerpt isn't. I don't understand why this is problematic.Of course I know, so I wrote this thread, not my thread.
I totally understand your complain. Accepting it means asking an administrator to delete this thread. I thought you knew how this thread started, but you don't seem to know it.It was suggested to me at The Official Shoe Care Thread to gather my excerpts on that thread together and post them as a new thread for convenience. I try to select as accurate information as possible. If you find mistakes, please correct them. If you still dislike and feel uncomfortable about this...

FWIW, here are a link to Amazon and Forwarding Service/Buying Service from Japan.http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/switch-language/product/B004M12R8G/ref=dp_change_lang?ie=UTF8&language=en_JPhttp://www.tenso.com/en/guide/buy/index.htmlhttp://www.tenso.com/en/agent/index.htmlI don't know how reliable tenso.com is:...
Unlike autoxidation, dehydrogenation doesn't occur in the open air, does it?Water vapor permeability of mineral oil isn't bad, while that of petrolatum (Vaseline) is certainly bad.http://www.dowcorning.com/content/discover/discoverchem/si-industrial-apps.aspxBTW, the below wax is used by Redel Ogawa (curriers of shell cordovan) and sold by Hasegawaya (Redel Ogawa's leather care department). It consists of natural fish oil, mineral oil, and carnauba...
