Yes, the shoes are new and worn not more than 10 times. What seems odd to me is that it looks like the uppers are just glued to the welt/sole. I cannot seem to see any thread or needle holes in the part of the uppers that have separated.post #6292 of 189357/24/13 at 4:56pmQuote:
i would give them back for a refund or replace thempost #6293 of 189357/25/13 at 9:07ampost #6294 of 189357/25/13 at 12:44pmI have heard and read many things (on SF and beyond) regarding care for shell cordo shoes. I have a very simple question: I have a vintage pair that are in great shape but seem to be headed toward dehydration. Is the collective wisdom here that I should: 1) simply brush and activate the oils; or 2) use cordovan cream; or 3) use or some other product; or 4) some combination of the above?
Thanks in advance.post #6295 of 189357/25/13 at 12:50pmQuote:
When going through the 3,, 4, or 5 step process - applying "less" product is better than more product. Light brushing and then a repeat should show a difference.
Here are two links of interest:

Thanks. I will give that a try. Interestingly, the shoes in question are a pair of Lloyd & Haug PTB v-cleats, from the 1980s or, more likely, much older, and look very much like the ones you're wearing. They were completely unworn when I found them.
