Anyone know what is the best oil or conditioner for boots?
Also what is the best oil/conditioner to dull the color?

Go for pure neatsfoot oil or Montana Pitch Blend oil if you desire a field oiled finish, or else there is nothinh wrong with a nice glow.

GlenKaren had the best conditioner for casual shoes, but provides a hot glow and a smooth, dry, non-sticky surface.

Whether renovateur, cordovan cream, cream polish, leather conditioner, or wax. My shoes will all look cloudy/matte if it is not brushed of buffed after using those products.

Well remember folks cm shoes always want that shit. Sw&d boots such as ccp, ma+, a1923 like the matter and untreated look. But they still need to be cleaned and maintained.

Unfortunately, that means few treatments and more brushing in this case.

I think I'll do the same during my trip to Japan.  I have to admit I thought Edoya was the brand name... Maybe it won't be as easy to find as I thought.  

 

All that being said, I can't say that I've ever had trouble with my normal brush.

I thought there was a shop, mentioned by @nutcracker, in Nihonbashi, Japan. Other than that, in his Japanese shoes thread, there are sporadic spread of shops or retailers of the brush across the country as well.

Yep, Die Workwear had a blog on it a while back: http://dieworkwear.com/post/52715237353/edoya

I wanted to get there when I was in Tokyo last fall, but never made it: http://www.nihonbashi-edoya.co.jp/

I know it's a PITA, but if you are proxy-ing, just PM me.

Well, I don't "Facebook." That's a morass I don't want to wade into.

Thanks again.

BTW, For those who are interested I posted a short blurb about this award here

Late Congrats for that award DW. But let me tell you that you have many others awards from many of us.

 

By the way, no Facebook either.:cheers:

Thank you for the kind words.

As for FB, I have been told that my website is the oldest continuously "up" site on the Internet devoted to boots and shoes. I don't know whether that's true or not (I know others were there before me but they dropped off) but I recognized the potential fairly early on. I also started a discussion forum for bespoke makers quite a while ago. I haven't looked into it but I wouldn't be surprised if it was the first such forum.

That said, I suppose I missed the boat with Facebook. I'm tempted to register...just to "cruise" and check up on my wayward children...but like anyone who has been involved with computers and the 'net for any length of time, I'm wary. You have to keep up and frankly, where once I was the only one I knew who had actually read the DOS manual front to back, now I'm resisting Windows 8 as well.

[sigh] There's not enough room in my brain after 69 years.

I find it very hard to part with shoeboxes; especially robust boxes from my nicer shoes.

 

Some I've managed to justify by filling with tape, shoe care supplies, cutting instruments and Christmas decorations. But some are just hanging around for the seasonal storage of shoes/boots or...well.. for the off-chance that I feel compelled to sell a pair and need a convenient shipping box.

 

 

However, I am moving internationally in two months (now I'll just be a regular Hedonist). Part of me says "just put them in storage." Yet, I know I should probably free up the unused space....

 

:decisions:

Thanks, pB.

In truth, it's not such a world-shaking event.

Fairly early on in my career, a friend of mine walked into the shop of a very famous bootmaker in Arizona and announced that he too was a bootmaker. To which the old boy said "well, you ain't much then, are you?" It was a humbling experience even told and experienced second and third hand, simply because in the larger scheme of things it really isn't much.

Except to those of us who do it.
