Shipping to Europe might be a reason:

Holy crap!

 

Where in Europe are you?  Do you know anyone at a military base who you trust to receive items for you?  It may not exactly be the most legal way of circumventing international shipping rates but it's one way.

So I wore my suede chukkas out and it started to rain. They weren't waterproofed and now have a bit of a white line on the toe. Are these permanently damaged? I tried to brush with the soft part of a suede brush but it didn't seem to be working. I really need to waterproof these.

Looks like salt stains.
If I understood correctly others were able to remove those kind of stains from their suede shoes completely.
Have to tried it on a pair of my own suedes that I wore this winter as well.

Just bought the stocked saphir mini valet box from Afpos: 6 various sized brushes, 4 pate due luxe, renovateur and polishing cloth for £170 including postage. The storage box won't hold much more than what's in it but its nicely made.

Here it is quite a lot cheaper, as expected. I have noe idea why it's so expensive directly from AE, seems to be the norm when shipping to Europe from U.S.-based sellers. However, I don't use sole dressing as I like the more natural look of a waxed sole.

Renovateur and much brushing with the worlds biggest horsehair brush. Now to see how they look with polish! (Bearing in mind they're over 20 years old and are the same shoes that have been eaten in my avatar!)

Those look great for 20 year old shoes!  Are they Aldens?  You probably posted about it elsewhere, but how did you manage to get that chewed up heel fixed?

They're C&J Onslows. Only made in scotchgrain or shell now and tbh don't even know if it's the same last!

I used First Class shoe repairs as C&J said they were beyond repair. They fixed the damage and resoled them for about £20 more than the resole alone would have cost.

Perhaps most remarkable is that I didn't kill my dog!

Ehh, isn't that his ear you used to patch up the damage? : )

Lovely shoe and a wonderful repair job!

Yeah I was very happy with their work! He kept his ears but it took a while to clean the shoes after I'd hoofed one up his arse!!
