Speaking of Strands, I spent the last couple hours giving a little bit of gloss to the toes of my walnut ones...

 

 

 

Very nice.  Sizzle, what color polish are you using?  It looks like a light brown to mute some of the reddish tone of AE's Walnut.

I think there's been a miscommunication somewhere along the line.  The pictured shoes are the new AE webgem for April.  AE determined this would be a bigger seller than a new color of shell.

To return them to their original color and get rid of the built up wax.  Why else?

If Renovateur and Lexo. are not getting it all off, then, yes, I would try Renomat.  I would also research how to use it correctly and ask questions in the shoe care thread.

Sounds like it is just them so contact them directly. Kristle Fox is the store manager and the one I ask for but all of the SA's are great there that I have dealt with.

Is it just the shoes in that store's inventory or for ALL the outlets?

Its a shame they don't make any classic or moderately modern looking shoes.  They are the "Alden" of womens shoes.  If they ever made a decent oxford, I would look into them...

I would try Renomat on your Strands. If it doesn't get the wax off, then maybe it just isn't going to come off. Hanger Project has some instructions on using Renomat.

Woah don't denigrate Alden like that. Christian Louboutin makes very stylish shoes, but I'd hardly say they come close to Alden's construction methods. Also, Christian Louboutin is known by the masses. Alden is known mostly by only those who appreciate nice mens' shoes.

Are you family with their women's shoes?  They are made completely different than mens shoes, so ya, comparing it to goodwelted shoes is not a good comparison, I am just saying, Louboutin's (along with Manolo, Jimmy Choo, etc...) are the high end shoes for women, just like Alden, Carmina, Edward Green, and etc is to men.  They use good quality leather, lining, heel construction, etc...

 

While I'm not proud of this, knowledge of woman's shoes is almost as much as asset as being able to cook LOL

lol, alden should not be mentioned in the same breath as Edward Green.

Louboutins are more like G&G, in that they are the same price range, design, etc as Manolos, Choos and the like).

Carmina is not EG level either.
post #17398 of 46883

sigh... i'm getting torn apart for commenting putting the top 2 percentile of shoes in the same category

 

G&G and Edward Greens = Louboutin

Carmina and Alden = Jimmy Choo

 

my dignity = zero

OK thread back on topic.  Custom Neumoks should be getting delivered soon.  Didn't they say by March 17th?  idk... I ordered them on the last day they were available, so I would assume it would take longer than that.  idk...
