I guess that is liquid polish. Wax polish will be in a tin and it's a solid. Cream wax is a cream.

I re-laced my Strands and I definitely prefer the straight-laced look. I wore the Bourbon pair yesterday and definitely liked this way better - Thanks!

 

 

 

...funny, in the above light these two Strands look very similar in color, when in reality the Bourbon Strands on the right are a lot darker than the Walnut Cordovans on the left.

 

I hit the local AE store yesterday to see about a two-for-$250 deal and couldn't find anything I liked. We are about to head into the hot weather here, so I'm looking for shoes that I can wear more casually with shorts along with the potential to be dressed up a bit if needed. I was able to pick up a pair of factory seconds Kenwood tan penny loafers for $135, and I like them so much I am considering going back to pick up a burgundy pair. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High hopes for these - They are extremely comfortable out of the box and I plan to wear them into dust.

I'd call it cream. The AE Premium polish is what I am thinking of.

And shout out to Baton Rouge, LA (esp since they have the New Orleans) =] @OptoDoc @halfnhalfnhalf

I don't like them. Has a very Cole Haan feel to it...and not in a good way. 

 

This Baton Rouge boy isn't biting.

I'd call that cream, also. OP was talking about a tube and applicator like this: http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF524_1_40000000001_-1_

I hope he isn't using edge dressing for shoe polish! I don't think AE has a shoe polish in this type of applicator.

If if comes in a tube, I am pretty sure it's a cream.

I agree until he mentions the foam applicator head.

I also feel the more casual walnut and more formal Park Avenue style can conflict a bit.

Ha - Thanks. I'm a "regal-sized" dude that took up running a year ago, but stopped when we recently moved south. I really need to get back to it. :/ 

 

I was definitely flexing in that I had my weight transferred to the balls of my feet - I took the pic with this plus a large flash attached in one hand:

 

 

It's a bit heavy.
