Certainly you have seen this shoe buffing machines that sit on the floor. They have been around for years and come in a range of quality levels. I used to own one (now pitched) that was ok but you could stop the motor with any degree of pressure on the buff wheel pads. If you own one of these machines, your experiences would be helpful. Any brand recommendations, sources, etc.
Nice boots though.

Did you get a lot of responses. Good luck on the interview. You can find some simple black, lace-up shoes for under $100.00 that don't have a rubber sole. As your income goes up, you can expand your shoe and clothing wardrobe. You are on a short rope! Get the shoes a day or two ahead of time and wear so the soles aren't slick for the interview.
A great pair of Goodyear welted shoes from one of America's finest shoemakers. These shoes feature the 1/2 Alden commando sole. Great condition with no tears. Rich chocolate brown. Full grain calfskin. These are my personal shoes. Retail is now over $300.00. Asking $95.00. These shoes do not need to be refurbished. US buyer only. We can discuss shipping terms. Thanks for reading this post and my thanks, in advance, to the SF. amemovox (James...
Nice collection of real world shoes.
Tassels don't work for me. Some guys can pull it off but not my style. The ends seems to get "bushy" after some wear. Certainly, those are well made shoes though.
The Florsheim does not look sleek enough. It looks too much like a work boot. Here is a beter example: It is an English made shoe and is available is a UK size 13 which is equates to a 14 US size. There was also a 50% coupon code floating around for this site.
Alden cordovan leather is tough. I wear mine and if a nick, dent or scuff occurs in the course of life, just buff with your horsehair brush.
