Hey guys,

Got a few questions. Anyone have any experience using C&J's shoe trees on a 341 last in half sizes? Like does it fit well or is there another shoe tree that works better? Secondly, anyone have any opinions using C&J shoe creams, polish, and wax or is the Saphir the brand of choice?

Cross-posting from the shoe porn thread: I wrote up an anatomy and review text about C&J shoes with my usual picture angles for last comparison. Up close: Ashdown in Horween #8 shell cordovan, double leather soles, last 341.

Until when is the CJ sale going on?

I haven't had a response regarding G width models, maybe they are not available... frown.gif

Very few models are available in G width to start with, have you checked the CJ store in NYC?

It's hard to believe that such a standard offering would be discontinued, the plain toe blucher, or derby as it were, being a staple of most rtw shoe manufactures for over a century.

I have no experience using C&J shoetrees and shoe care products, though I'm sure they're good. I had difficulty finding C&J 341 shoetrees, so I've been using Alden shoetrees on my 341 lasted C&J for RL Marlows, which seem to work well. All the shoes in my rotation now are shell cordovan. I wipe them with a damp cloth and brush them before and after wearing. Saphir Renovateur, used sparingly, a couple times a year seems to do the trick for conditioning.
