Had to Google red-rot but that pretty much describes the leather on these boots DWF. Strange since these are new boots and not used ones. Incorrect storage maybe the cause I guess. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_rot_(leather) Actual auction:http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=121205763258
I was happy to have found a Cheaney sample boot in a museum calf like color on eBay but received them like this: Teared leather and large cracks. What can cause this? Dried out leather?
Kiwi aqua stop (aka Super protector) works just the same in my experience. And is just over 2 euros in my local supermarket here.http://www.kiwicare.com/kiwimcmssite/us/products/leather/super-protector.html
These are made by Sanders, does anyone know for whom since they are unbranded. I'm thinking a US retailer since the sizing info is in both UK and US format which is not seen on Sanders branded shoes. The pull tab reminds me of Mark McNairy but I think their tabs are always red, white and blue, right?
I have a pair of Daks wholecuts that are made by Grenson.
Lukewarm water, shampoo and a brush is how I do it (just like suede)Watch out if the canvas is light colored since the leather lining might stain it after it has become wet.
How are they? Been wanting to pull the trigger on them for a while now since they seem to be one of the few nice looking captoe oxfords with a Dainite sole. How is the fit and leather quality?
They look great indeed, such a shame the 026 last doesn't seem to agree with my feet (8f is just a tiny bit too small lengthwise and 8.5f is way too roomy)
Does this comparison also work for the Herring by AS line vs AS Exclusive?
That's Loake's 024 last if I'm not mistaken. Can you post a pic of the inner style and last stamp?
