Glad for you guys. Basically you are getting the shoes at discount ..

post #7652 of 12762
Just had my first professional shoe shine in Vegas at Encore/Wynn! I never really use shoe cream but I should reconsider that especially after seeing the difference it gives to the shine. Interestingly the chap used a strip of canvas and brushed it across rather than in a circular motion and it worked magic.

Below c and j Wembley:

You should reconsider using some trees also. Those shoes need them bad.

I think it's too late for those shoes. Damage has been done. Going forward though definitely invest the 8 dollars in shoe trees

Where can I find boot trees like these???

Yeah I know I dropped by Vegas on the way back to Britain from a conference in mexico so I didn't have my trees. frown.gif

I wear them pretty much every day so it's taken a massive toll on the creasing front. Amazingly comfortable though. I'll probably get a cordovan pair made on the 360 last in the future.

Everyday wear + no shoe trees = they're ruined. As you can see there's no structure left on the shoes.

Preaching to the choir there I know the importance of shoetrees and having a rotation of shoes but these happen to be the first last that fits really well and I'm going to take comfort for now. When I invest in more shoes then I definitely will.

The coniston never fit very well for me.

That said, the tan grain version is nice. I don't do blue shoes or blue boots.

Maybe low instep causing the creasing?

Yeah I do suffer from that although I don't really see creasing as a bad thing. I am one of those people who sees character in it. I just love well worn comfortable shoes. I'm planning to get this pair resoled over and over again.

If you have a low instep, the 348 last might be best. I have a low instep too, and the 348 is snug around the instep.

Ah great thanks smile.gif

Yeah 348 was under my radar and it fit quite well. I just went for the 360 since I preferred round toes. The lowndes looks quite nice though and I am tempted.
