Beautiful. Looks like they're one piece!
The soles of the shoes I have on the link looked quite bad (dry and flaky fibers), days after waddling through several monsoon storms. I think the conditioner (contains oils) did make the leather look healthier.Here is an interesting product called the Leatherstick by Abbeyhorn. Yes, made in the UK (buffalo horn) and sold in Japan.Perhaps not its intended purpose, the leatherstick can be used in conjunction with the sole conditioner, for pressing the loose fibers down on...
The BB leather sole conditioner is thick and creamy. I suppose it contains lots of oils to penetrate and moisten the sole. It also contains some mildew-proof agents? (not exactly sure what chemical that is) It works quite well for dry, flaky soles.Here is a link to some pictures I took.http://www.styleforum.net/t/355694/testing-ingenuity-shoes-by-kamioka/15#post_6520943p.s. but yes, a specialised sole conditioner is not a necessity.

Yes, yahoo.jp auction is an excellent source for locating bargains, both Japanese and imported shoes.I assume those Regal shoes are some of their Italian styled shoes. Both are blake/Mackay stitched, and have Polish Binded kip for their uppers. Seems like a reasonable deal (vs. retail price).
