I have a pair a shoes where I noticed recently there's a hole developing in the inside at the back of the shoe.

I also have a pair of moccasin shoes (this kind of style) where the material has worn through at the toe of the shoe.

Is it possible to wear either of these?

I am thinking of bringing a blazer with me to wear after i take off the robe on graduation day, At the moment i have those brown shoes + navy dress pants + navy tie + white shirt + silver cuff links, Was going to get a grey/charcoal blazer but it may not look good, any suggestions? I am going to to crane brothers tomorrow to have a look around their off the rack range.

Why not a simple navy suit?

a LITER of Lexol?  I use a bottle a fraction of that size, and it lasts several twice-a-year applications on my car seats.  A little goes a very long way.  I don't use it on my shoes, but man, you guys must really be slathering the stuff on.  Or else you have a hundred pairs of shoes.  Which I could believe. :)

What are your results on the car seats? I put in in my X5 when new but that is a much harder leather. The M3 has baby soft leather and I'm a little hesitant to liberally apply. I too have a liter from Amazon.

When people write of Lexol, which sort do they mean?  In the UK, there is Lexol Leather Conditioner (in the brown bottle) and Lexol Leather Cleaner (in the orange bottle). Which is the one people are referring to, here?

I have used it on many different cars over the last 20 years - my own and those of family members - never had a problem.  You really don't need to apply it liberally - a thin coat rubbed in will work a treat.

 

Munky - I was referring to the leather conditioner (though I use both for car seats) - I assume it is the conditioner that some people choose to use on their shoes.

Conditioner.

I use them very liberally.

Liter for my litters.

Thank you, both, that's helpful. I plan to pour a litre in each shoe. Given that I clean my shoes every 30 minutes, that's quite a lot of Lexor.  :lookaround:

Can Lexol be used on corrected grain leather, to any good effect?

Thanks for that link, David.

 

I sometimes wonder what percentage of people on this site have NO corrected grain shoes. Just a thought. 

post #6779 of 10715
I think most people,once they understand what corrected grain is , avoid it
post #6780 of 10715

If they can afford to avoid it...
