I used the AE conditioner cleaner. I think you would get the same result with Reno or VSC, but can't vouch for that since I haven't tried it yet.Finished the toe with a bit of neutral kiwi just to give it a slight sheen.
What's interesting is I keep these shoes conditioned yung AE leather lotion (as per AE SA advice) but they only appear nourished only for a short while after application. After a day they are back to the light dry looking tan leather (that's how they looked new).But with the AE leather cleaner and conditioner looks like the darker color will stay and they definitely look more nourished.
I know the chukkamok doesn't get a lot of love from this thread due to its errr, hybrid look. It's definitely not for everyone, but it has found its way to my regular rotation. The leather is just buttery soft and the gumlite vibrant sole is so comfortable and it feels like I'm wearing a Tiger Onitsuka.

I hope it...
Posted a question on the MTO thread, but I think I should have posted it here since the question isn't really an MTO question but a sizing question.
I'm trying to get my wife a pair of Allen Edmonds boots, the Eagle County which is on the 2 last. She measures 6.5C on the brannock but unfortunately they don't have a that size in the 2-last. They do have a 6D though.
On a 2 lasted boot, would wearing a 6D vary that much with a 6.5C? The 2 last looks like it wears...
You will receive an invoice, basically a copy of the original invoice but with taxes and also the charge for the shoe. After receiving this invoice, I usually send her an email asking for the tracking number.
