Have you or will you wear them before you treat them? I wore my capp. Dundees once and where the creases formed are a bit rough. No other shell I have did this.

Damn those are really nice. Looks like reading through the recent posts is that cappuccino is gone. I tried on some Dalton's yesterday but I'm thinking about cleaning out the closet to raise funds for an MTO makeup that can be my go-to shoe.

This is my 3rd wearing of my Bayfields and they are a bit dry. I will probably treat them and my Dundees over the weekend. I likely will not wear my Dundees before I treat them. That is more a function of the amount of footwear I have then any feeling about not wearing them prior to treating them :)

 

Interesting that yours are rich. I have not experienced that. I would imagine a conditioner and some heavy brushing will fix them right up for you

Thanks! I think they would look great in dark brown as well. Really any of the cordovan colors would make up well. Plus the Poron insole is super comfortable.

Thanks, Ryden. Looks like I'll be ordering some reno today. I wish I could get reno and Alden leather defender from the same place. I want to get both. I want the defender for my Indys.

there is the size, then the 4 digit model #.  Sometimes there will be another number that is 5 digit or so on a separate line.  The 4 digit one is key.  The last digit is the last of the shoe.  Don't quote me on this, but the 1st 3 digits is the model #.

Does Leffot not stock both? You may want to give them a call. You could at least get some Reno and the Nano suede spray or Saphir brush as well. I know people here will probably think a $30 brush is ridiculous but I have tried almost every horsehair brush out there from $5 to $50 and for me nothing shines as well as the Saphir horsehair brushes.

I will have to call Leffot. The nano suede spray wouldn't do me any good on shell, right? That's why I wanted the Defender. I have only had the AE brushes up to this point. I don't know any different.

Deer bone works a treat in smoothing out creases in shell.

I have been fortunate with my shell Townelys - probably the least amount of creasing in any shoe I own, shell or calf:

Hanger Project as well has a huge stocklist of shoe care products. Correct, on the suede spray. I just meant if you owned some suede that needed protection headed into the fall. I always try to group of shoe care orders together. I know must love the AE brushes but I find the shell to look very fuzzy after being brushed in comparison to other brushes.

I almost always wear before treating.  The roughness comes out in some shell shoes, and not in others - I have it in some of my AE shell, some of my Alden shell, and some of my C&J shell.  I have found a damp rag + brushing works on some, reno + brushing works on most, and AE's shell cordovan cream + brushing works on most also.  Just note that the AE cordovan cream also adds color and should be used very sparingly.  Others have had success with Saphir's cordovan creams.

Yea, I agree with adding a couple more things in the order to make it more worth while. I did notice a little haze on the cappuccino. I used a new AE brush on those. I haven't noticed that on my other light and dark shell specific brushes.

Per RogerP...maybe I should add a deerbone to my order as well.

Those look great.  Got me thinking of selling my CXL bayfields and going to shell.  Really like the natural sole edge too.  Nicely done!

Touche'

 

Actually, I haven't had a complete eye exam in 3 years. I just refract myself every time I feel my glasses need an update.

 

It's true...doctors are the worst patients.
