There is an idea of my Allen Edmonds seconds. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real shoe. Only an entity -- something illusory.

Nicely done sir.

Four times a year, I send my shoes to San Francisco's Spa Radiance, where they get the Grand Luxe Facial--a three-hour long treatment. There, aestheticians use Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion, which gently exfoliates the leather, and Purikiss Microcurrent Disencrustation, which removes impurities, brown spots and sebum deposits (ok, go for it...). The final step is LED light therapy that promises to scale back years of sun damage and irritation.

Meanwhile, I staycation because nothing is too good for my dog boxes...

There's going to be a new SPF 60 Saphir Renovateur coming on the market in October. It can be used both on shoes and on the face.

Man, I didn't know it did so much...maybe I should raise the price.

I just use it to CLEAN and condition shoes.

It's a great product. Sometimes, though, people do see Jesus in that jar.

It's bewildering to be an old man in this day and age. In my day men didn't use exfoliants, moisturizing lotions, herbal masks, or tweezers on the brows...not on their skin, not on their shoes. They simply washed and rinsed. Soap and water. How crazy is that?

does anyone know where to purchase this product (saphir renovateur) in Canada? in Calgary or Toronto?

I am looking for a cleaner and conditioner for new AE strands before I polish.

Is there a generic cleaner/conditioner that would work just as well as the Saphir? I'm also looking at AE's own Conditioner Cleaner, but am unable to find it in town.
