^^ I don't wear my shoes that frequently, either, but I brush after every wearing. I have yet to apply anything to my shells, but I have been researching what I want to use. One I figure out what product I want to use I will probably condition once a year at the most.

+1 mine get a quick brushing after each wear, after a few wears, I do a damp rag + brushing, and a couple times per year I do a Reno or wax (for black shoes) treatment.

My contact let me get one for $125, but I originally wanted to do 3 for 375 and she had told me the other two were unavailable. You can ask and they might say okay.

The next sale is likely the rediscover america sale at the end of the month. Its been discussed a few pages back.

That's right, Saunders is a chukka, not a longwing. The names are really confusing though.

I have it in suede. It's... okay. The suede isn't of the best quality. You get what you pay for.

Thanks for the input. Would you say the quality of the suede is the same as in Amoks? The $525 retail makes it more expensive than Alden's unlined chukka so it'd better be good.

Are these MacNeils?

Hmm...maybe you're right.  The site I found them on said they were AE, but it wouldn't be the first time the internet was wrong, lol.

You're right. Me bad. I have the Sandersons in leather so my world revolves around them, lol.

Nordstrom sells them. I wear the same size in Cliftons as I do in Strands.

You could also try getting a pair of 2nds from the Shoebank.

Ha, no worries. It gets confusing with all the "S's": Sanderson, Singleton, Saunders, etc. I ordered a pair of brown Saunders a few months ago and they sent me a pair of Sandersons by mistake. When I tried to correct it they were out of stock on the Saunders. I ended up keeping the Sanderson since it was in nice condition and I only paid $129.

I ordered a pair of the Brooks Brothers football leather chukka boots as part of the 2 for $250 sale. I'm puzzled as to why it's $498 on BB's website even though it clearly states "Allen Edmonds" on the sole. After all, football leather is not a premium leather. I was very interested in this shoe when I first saw it but there was no way I was paying anywhere close to $498 for it, so I'm glad that my size was available in 2nds for this sale. I have no idea what last these are on so hopefully they fit OK.

These are on the 234 last, similar to the Chukkamok.
