hope this is the right forum. picked these up insanely cheap but they're a bit beat up as you can tell. any advice other than hitting it with a nubuck brush?

any replacement laces ideas?

thanks.

America's greatest hand made off the rack shoe. RIP.





Thanks to vintage shoe Maestro isshinryu 101 for securing me those beauties in my favourite size 11D. cheers.gif

Love Treatment Regime so far:

1. Generous applications of Cadillac conditioner
2. Generous rubbing in of Collonil1909/Diamant medium brown
3. Finished with Angelus mahogany wax.
4. Buffed shine rather than spit shine

Tragedy is that this is their last day like this. The suicide heels will be replaced and a topy added to protect the barely worn sole.

Should be good for another 85 years!

Beautiful model. I love this color.

Why, the laces should be red like the sole! They'll add some nice contrast above all that whiteness. Be sure to protect the uppers with some spray and use chalk to hide dark scuffs.

awesome...is there a consensus place for affordable, quality laces?

the Kiwi spray work?

not sure if these are suede or nubuck and if it even matters from a cleaning perspective.

I'm not versed enough with the differences between shoe care goods to recommend one above the other. As for laces, waxed cotton has both the looks and the strength to go with everything. They can also be re-waxed for more staying power later on.

...and do remember to take advantage of those shoe shine machines in hotel lobbies everywhere. Even if you'll shun the machine creams, that third rotating brush for finishing is just about the best thing for all leather types.

Today's pair: Lattanzi's Norvegese-welted penny loafers with hourglass stitch, made from Horween's cordovan.

Hello, my friend! In the 1960's, they were still legal, though, so no worries.
