Thanks (and thanks to others who have chimed in).
Is this the same stuff? http://www.amazon.com/Saphir-Renovateur-Luxury-Leather-Care/dp/B002PLC60Y
It seems like it to me, just a bit smaller size than the 75mL one sold elsewhere. I don't anticipate using a ton of it (although that could change), and have an amazon gift card so would like to buy it on amazon if I can. Amazon also seems to carry the $22 75mL one, but for nearly half the price I'd like to try this first.

The stitching on the inside of the right shoe feels uncomfortable against my big toe. Anyone have this happen before?Quote:Originally Posted by StylinProfilin
Bought a new pair of Arezzos during the RDA sale. Found this little hole on the side.debating whether I should return it based on just this defect.
One other thing, on the inside of the right shoe, my big toe is rubbing against the stitching which is unconfortable. Oddly, the left shoe is fine. Anyone experience this before?post #65736 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:02pmpost #65737 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:31pmQuote:Originally Posted by billikenman

Thanks for the advice. I plan on using it on my first ever pair of shell cordovan shoes (well, boots). Not yet sure if I'll use it for any calfskin.post #65738 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:36pmpost #65739 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:37pmpost #65740 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:40pmpost #65741 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:53pm
Add me to the list of squeakers.
Got my brown grain 2.0's yesterday (ordered on the last day of the sale, after I dithered and missed out on some tan McT's) and these things squeak like a mofo! I have some AE cleaner/conditioner, and I've used it to stop the squeak on my Bleecker Streets, but I'm a bit hesitant to put some on since I'm not "in love" with these and might return them.
When I first found AE, I just knew the Black Hills were the most comfortable of the ones I tried on that day and walked out with them. Every 65-last shoe since then has been a winner. I did try the 511 Dalton & Long Branch last fall when looking for a boot (and ended up with the 65-Bleekers, natch) and recall that they fit OK. I seem to need slightly thicker socks for these Dundees to stay in place on my right foot. Not the end of the world for a casual fall chukka, but still trying to rationalize.
Any thoughts on putting a little conditioner on to tame the squeak if I might return them?post #65742 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:54pmOxblood was a tad too light and flashy for me so I let some renouvateur sit in the leather for 20 min and hit the shoes with some merlot Polish. Loving these so far...they are at the right height so they did not bother my ankles during the break-in stage like my fifth street and dundees did.post #65743 of 7073710/18/15 at 2:55pmpost #65744 of 7073710/18/15 at 3:21pmpost #65745 of 7073710/18/15 at 3:24pm
