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.
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.
What about this? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Allen-Edmonds-Shoe-Heel-Sole-Edge-Dressing-Black-/290848547331?pt=US_Men_s_Accessories&hash=item43b7eca203&_uhb=1
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.
20 years!!!! wow, that is really impressive.
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!
