Conservative is another word for 'thoughtful."

In certain cases, yes.

I think we have to agree to disagree on these issues; we are fast running off-topic!  :happy:

I don't regard that as a major sin--as in real life, I follow the discussion where it leads.

But OK...

.the USA took a real wine making word in Europe...Specifically Italy where wine has to age a certain number of years in Barrel ..then sit another year(for example) in bottle before being able to be labeled as "Riserva"...It is all governed by DOCG labeling laws and taken as a serious violation to fudge with it.

 

In the USA they just use the word for any ole reason they see fit.

I didn't see "purist" as a pejorative term. Never mind.

In Spain we have a well known GYW shoe manufacture with 2 different lines of quality: the "Good Year Welted"  line ( basic line) and the "Premium Grade" line ( higher quality but still produce with a GYW machine, of course).   It seems a very stupid clasification to me, but that is only marketing and we all here should know. It happens in all sectors and industries to try to sell more. It is on TV , everywhere and everyday.

I am a long time lurker and decided to join the forum as I have a problem with one of my Lobbs. Basically I worn these shoes to the party... all went well until I found these spots on my shoes. I have no clue what these spots came from, so I figured they were water spots. I dried the shoes for a day in my room, but these things won't go away. Since it wasn't water... it should be something else then... I proceeded to the next step: Reno'Mat. I used the Reno'Mat on the small area to test if it works.... unfortunately it didn't. I don't know what else should I proceed with. I paid quite a bit for these, so it upsets me a lot. Thank you in advance.

this looks like more something with color in it( coca-cola and less possible scotch or wine) ! 

can you specify the procedure you did with renomat because most of the time its not uses the right way!

generally dont over do it with renomat or other kind of stripper cause its quit easy to mess up the finish or the leather surface of your shoes!(dont rub just let the product on to do the work)

 

the shoes are not destroyed even at the scenario where you cant clean the spots(quite difficult to happen) you can always darken the shoes

Cocktail parties, nightclubs, and urinals are brutal on good shoes.

Wax them well, nourish them good, and they will take the hard beating.
