The more I think about it, the less likely I think it is that the toes turned up just by being worn by someone who's feet didn't fill the ends. I only think that's possible if they spent a great deal of time standing on their tiptoes.
The arch support also feels less than in my Farmer Ranchers, which I believe also fits with the boots being Swing last. Of courrse, they could possibly just be more broken in.
I bought a pair of White's on ebay (85.D) described as "Bounty hunter in brown dress leather on a single leather sole", but they are clearly not on the Semi Dress last. They appear to be on the Swing last (pronounced upturned toes).
I thought all Bounty Hunter's were on the Semi Dress last.
Were they misdescribed?
Okay, at this point I have been told:1) Obenauf's LP2) Waxy polish3) You're screwed unless you get them refurbished4) You're screwed even if you get them refurbishedIf I try polish & LP, should I do the LP first then give it time to fade before trying the polish?Or should I use the polish first since the LP may keep the leather from fully soaking up polish?Or should I pick either polish or LP and only try one?
Have a pair of White's boots in smooth brown leather. The heel of one is scuffed as hell, but the heel of the other is not. Boots were very dry so I applied Obenauf's oil, but that had no effect on the scuffs.
AnythingI can do to fix this scuff?
