In regards to maintaining this shoe, what would you recommend?

I reside in south-east TX so the climate is usually either quite dry or rainy (there's rarely an in-between point) - with high temperatures. 

Keep it simple and stick with that polish..seems to have worked well for me. I'll occasionally use the conditioner but I don't think that's necessary.

The grass isn't totally green, and the yanks aren't doing to well, so here's to wishing things change soon...

Behold the beauty of black shell.  Can you tell I don't wear it much?

Just started building up my collection of AEs -- I love a lot of the styles, but worry they're a bit too formal for my use cases. Anyone have an opinion on Merlot McAllisters with business casual attire?

I wear the Cambridges the most.  The Leeds have a funky fit.  I don't know why, since I have another pair of Leeds and they're fine.  I just have to get them stretched the right way.  I break all rules with the PAs and wear them with suits, even though they're shell and have a storm welt.  :)
