Crockett and Jones crank up their Goodyear Welted rhetoric:

"The Goodyear Welted construction is expensive, time consuming and requires highly skilled craftsmanship. Invented hundreds of years ago, it is still considered the finest method of shoe construction today."

I've always known...simply because it is a universal quirk of human nature...that eventually and with enough repetition those distorting the truth will inevitably lose touch with reality and no longer be able to tell fact from fiction.

They come to believe their own con game.

Off to the left-hand side of the top of the window is a "+" icon and a "-" icon. Simply click on one or the other to magnify or diminish the page.

It's readable.

I have been using Meltonian shoe cream on my dress shoes and I have been pretty happy with the results.  However, now that I am upgrading my shoe collection a bit, is there a good reason to switch to Saphir or something else?

Thanks in advance!

No need to fix what isn't broken.
You can keep using Meltonian if you want.

Thanks.  Is there anything inferior about the Meltonian products?  Used long term (5 years or more) will they hurt the leather in any way?  Will Saphir shines last longer or be more scuff resistant?  Are they better for the leather than Meltonian? Any guidance is appreciated.

Thanks!

I think the biggest difference is that Saphir is more SF-approved.
