Not quite sure if this is the right thread, so forgive me if I'm wrong.


Does anyone have any advice for the best fitting shoe trees for a pair of gucci loafers size Gucci 7?

Any generic tree with the correct size will work.

do i need a large horsehair buffing brush or just a small jar/spreading brushing if i plan on applying saphir renovateur and obenauf's lp to my indy boots w/ no polish? i'm not technically buffing right? so do i need a big brush? any cheaper recommendations?

isn't the horsehair brush designed to clean dirt off initially. after that, can't i just use a sock?

you can probably pick up a large brush for less than $10. If you really can't spend that you can just apply by hand and buff with a cloth.

I bought some new boots, but I'm not completely satisfied with the color. I searched through this thread, but it's pretty huge, and most of what I found was about antiquing or dyeing.

 

I would like the boots to be slightly darker and more red, like in the second picture. It sounds like it should be possible to just use a Saphir cream polish? Would that be enough?

 

The color should be even though. I'm not going for an antique/patina look with these. If it's possible, do you think the Saphir mahogany cream would be the best choice?

Yes, evenly apply a darker polish, a few times, will do the trick.

I'm using the mahogany cream for a pair of AS Cherry. It gives a reddish brown hue. Suggest you should give it a shot.

I use mahogany as well.

If I buy Saphir insoles for my shoes, should I remove them when I'm inserting the shoe trees?

post #6552 of 10404
the insoles re quick thin, I don't think they will stretch the shoes, I leave my insoles in.
post #6553 of 10404

Okay, thanks. I'm going to try a pair to see if they give me better support for my flat feet.

Don't think it's necessary.

Noticed the other day my CJ Conistons have some damage from my heel that is pulling apart the heel from the inside (see pic) I was planning on getting another winters use before a resole so rather not send them in just yet, any ideas what I can do to repair this so it doesn't get any worse?
