Ah. The producer of the presidential shoe shine, destroyer of shoes.

You don't need specialty creams for Cordovan.

Not necessarily the destroyer of shoes, but rather, a master at all the effects and conditions I listed above.

@traverscao, do you have any photos of your footwear, especially over time? I'm really curious how you manage to not darken them given the products you apply.

I don't wear light color shoes. I only have one pair of dark brown, and I don't even want to wear them anymore. 

 

I have these if you are interested to look at. Fun to carry. Treated like most of my shoes.

These are some Italian made Johnston & Murphy shoes that got a little banged up on the toes.

 

Any recommendations on what I should do? (I know J&M doesn't get a lot of love here, but I bought them before I knew better.)

 

many thanks.

May I ask for a recommendation gentlemen?

 

What shoe would you recommend for walking several consecutive six-hour days in Paris that are comfortable, and yet won't draw too many scoffs from the locals?

 

I really don't think I've got something right for the task.

John Lobb Paris Bespoke, of course.

I'd just go straight to Berluti and be like: "Fit me a pair, mademoiselle/monsieur!"

Man, you guys have an interesting interpretation of walking shoes.

 

Noted.

There are several ways to interpret the term "Walking". You have to be more specific, like the walking environment, style, etc... I'd expect budget to be the last of it.

FWIW, I walk in dress shoes. Miles at a time. It is a rare occurrence that I don't wear dress shoes.
post #15493 of 19067
I could never walk for miles in any of my dress shoes, including the well broken into ones.

They don't fit.

PatrickBooth, are you a chemist or knowledgable in chemistry? I'm curious how you've come to learn to keep the pH of leather "in check", and why to use vinegar and water to bring the pH "back down" after walking on a salted sidewalk or road.

Perhaps you can explain to another chemist with a degree from a top 10 American university in greater detail.
