Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1036

Cheers. I'm quite slow at these things but it was a good 90 mins to 2 hours if not a wee bit longer. Put about 5 or 6 coats on each shoe.

Hungover polishing, thats the way to do it : ) Nice work too.
Some not very demanding television is also nice while you're at it.

If you have sufficient motor skills to polish while hungover, you didn't have enough to drink the night before.

Vomit instead of spit gives a unique patina.

Thanks to all the great information on the forum, specifically the shoe care thread and Crat's video. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







You did a great job. The shoes look fantastic.

I left my beaters at work on Friday, and Monday morning it's pouring. I rode my bicycle about 20 minutes to work (slowly) with umbrella in hand and SWIMS galoshes over my tassel loafers. They kept the soles dry, but the top and the tassels are soaked - you can see for yourself, there's a clear dark blot:



If I could make the choice again, I would buy some cheaper real galoshes instead of SWIMS. They aren't that stylish enough to make up for their so-so job of protecting shoes. They DO work, just not that well.

Scbrown, do drop a few lines on SF after you've worn the tweed pair for six months or so. I've never owned tweed footwear, I'm curious as to how the stuff wears on shoes.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Am I right in thinking that I need to add a little bit of black now and again to the Edward Green's to keep up the antique finish?

A little black every now and then wouldn't hurt imo. It's not necessary to keep the antique look though as the EG burnishing is done fairly 'deep down'.


Wholecuts out on a trip.

I've got this great mental image of you standing in a puddle of water taking that picture, while bemused onlookers nudge each other and point. 

 

Lovely picture, and lovely shoes. :)
