Somebody please guide me on AE cordovan caring. I never had this problem with Alden shell cordovan, but with all AE shells, there is crazy amount of factory polish on shoes.
It blocks nature shine of cordovan. I used saphir renovatuer over 10 times on one of brown shell, I still get brown polish off shoes.
I do use mac method to care my shoes, but I can't get shine like alden cordovan on AE.
I remember, someone was going to use renomat on shell to remove polish off the shoes.
Can anyone comment on that method?
Thanks in advance!
ok here is my dilema.
i recently bought a stack of wooden shoe trees from sierra trading post.
pretty much these ones. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/mens-shoe-trees~d~399/
i have a bunch of AE shoes that i got them for. when i place the shoe tree in one of the shoes, say the park avenue, i am worried about one thing.
because u have to push the heel part of the shoe tree into the toe compartment, so it all fits inside the shoe, does that not stretch the shoe lengthwise over time??
It may stretch it marginally if you are using the correct shoe tree size, but shouldn't stretch it so much that the shoe no longer fits.
