post #41806 of 70737

I keep my Leeds in my office most of the time and I was bored this morning so decided to give them some love.

 

 

I wiped them down with a damp cloth, let them dry for about 5 min.

brushed each shoe for about 3-5 min

applied a thin layer of Saphir Neutral Cordovan Cream Polish, left them for about 10 min

brushed again for a few min

buffed with a cotton cloth

Amok's from the sale for $99. The felt a bit strange at first, now they're like slippers. Only issue seems to be the heel is stitched in a strange manner inside the shoe.

I got mine a year ago in May.  I love, love, love them (snuff suede) and wear them very often (but never in the rain or snow)!

Man I love brown shell Strands, was hoping to pick up a pair during the $299 sale but missed out. I ended up with the Leeds and Dundees though which was a great consolation. 

 

I might not be able to hold out for another sale, even the $499 seconds price is calling my name lol

Buy some Tarrago nano protector and you'll have no problem wearing them in the rain with a guilty conscience.

Apologies in advance for cross-posting . . . Would anyone who owns more than one of these care to compare and contrast?

Second on the nano protector.  I've used them on my gf's suede boots and she had no problem wearing them all winter.  I was skeptical at first but after watching the youtube video, I decided to give it a try and very happy with the result.

Wow, watched that video. Did the spray darken the suede at all? Guess it wouldn't really matter much on my snuff suede though.

I did used it on a pair of tan suede driving mocs, the color was darker when i first sprayed them, but when they were dried, they came back to being light.

No experience with any of them, but I have black shell AE leeds.

I will say that all the Carmina shoes I have seen in fits on this forum have been MUCH more refined and elegant than any AE shoes I have seen in person or otherwise.

Same experience. Darkened first but returned to the same color within minutes.

Also wearing my Brown Dundees today.  Switched out the lace for a more casual look.

 

Not a fan of the laces. Cool shoe though!

How did these fit? Were they TTS or did you have to size up? I've heard they're crazy narrow!
