pB only needs black polish, though, right?

This is true, black cream, and black wax. I have a lot of reno and lexol though. Cloth, brush, you know.

Now I just use a basket about the size of 1½ laptops, even this one is filled to the brim with girlish glee waxes, creams, rags, brushes.

 

 

Several years ago I picked up a great looking wooden chest at COSTCO (has felt lined compartments).  Currently my wife uses it for her craft hobby.  Should she stop using it - I will be claiming it for the various shoe colors, creams, waxes, brushes, cloths . . . as my collection has wandered into other styles and colors.

 

 

And for protecting a shoe collection (many SF members have nearly $25,000 in shoes) - the following alternative version may be a worthwhile consideration:

Sure, but my point is that you don't really need to worry about an expanding collection of paraphernalia.

Thanks for the info! Also good to know you won't be taking shoes from me (I'm a 6F on the 724).

If it wasn't for online shopping, very hard to get shoes for our sizes! Living in the right age! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

(Cross post from the Alfred Sargent thread, since I know a lot of the more knowledgeable guys hang out in this.)


I (like everybody else it seems..) ordered a pair of AS Moore Cherry from the AFPOS sale, which I received yesterday. Lovely shoes, though I'm a bit concerned with some small cracks on the right toe cap, as well as on some minor ones on the left. See pictures:







I asked AFPOS about it and Sarah replied that I shouldn't worry, the leather is just dry and with some renovateur and some cream the leather will heal and it won't show or get worse. As much as I want to trust AFPOS, since they are always offering great service, I have to say that my experience of similar cracks on shoes before isn't the same. I've tried to get rid of similar cracks with both dubbin graisse, renovateur and cream, and sure you can cover them up, but for me they have always returned almost immediately and I have had the experience that the cracks have been permanent. So to me it is a bit worrying that there are these cracks on a brand new pair of shoes.

What's Styleforums take on this? Is it just normal, or should I be concerned?
