I have no idea how some of you get through a day without dissolving into a puddle of tears.
They're just fucking boots.
@lefty: I know how all of the people who care for their boots feel now. Yesterday on the way to the store some salt water splashed onto my RW Bourbon Round Toe boots. Couldn't wait to get home to get this dirt wiped off. Winter causes salt to be spread everywhere around here. Just noticed there is still some salt on the welt. Have to get this off before going to bed tonight.
^^ Nothing wrong with a little preventative care, but jesus christ there are only a few products you can use and only so many ways they can be used: if they're scuffed, polish them. If you're walking through inclement weather, treat them.
Worrying about the minor colour change on a work boot from a treatment product is fucking ridiculous.
Not too mention that most of you guys are choosing boots that are too small for you. But that something you can take up with your podiatrists later.
These look really good.
I added mine to year-old soles - you can add them on top of the existing, no problem.
Here you go.
Just read about this. Good idea or not?
What, exactly, is it in shoe polish that has such a headache-inducing smell? It could be any number of potentially toxic ingredients. Banish them from your house and use olive oil instead. Just buff onto your leather shoes with a cloth.
