You can also get it on Amazon here (same exact stuff): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008U51NL2/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B008U51NL2&linkCode=as2&tag=tt-20&linkId=SGCAJJQ34Y3DLVQW
Yep, seller is insane. If you scroll through his completed listings, you can see he keeps relisting them and they never sell: http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&LH_Complete=1&_ssn=chewie9809&ajxpg=1&_ipg=200&rt=nc
I'm now a convert to Alden Fine Boot Cream (Neutral) instead of Venetian Shoe Cream or Saphir Renovateur.
It seems a lot gentler in terms of solvent type ingredients yet works just as well if not better as near as I can tell.
It also costs less and is recommended by Alden for both chromexcel and shell. I talked to one of the guys at Alden SanFran and he said he pretty much swears by this stuff and they use it in the store as well. It seems to...
Yep, I've said it before-the Kudu 404 Indy Boots are very under-rated. Excellent all purpose, all conditions boot that is easy to clean and always looks and performs consistenly well. I highly recommend them.
The commando sole is only slightly better in the snow actually. The best sole for the snow would be the full Vibram hiking sole of the Kudu Indys: I really like the Neoprene cork sole for any times other than snow. It seems to last a long time and have good grip. I like it even better than a leather sole on an Indy boot, which is why I sold my Need Supply Church Hill Indys and went back to the J.Crew Indys.
Both are equally as durable. I think Chromexecel is softer right out of the box and will also look more the same over a longer period of time. It probably comes down to which color you like better. The 403 (or JCrew Indys) are darker. [Not my pic]:
