The soles get superficial scratches as people knock them around in the store, so usually you have to polish them a little from time to time to remove the scratches.

A few polishing sessions a month shouldn't be an issue, but I'm a bit worried about Ethan's three-hour orgies and frequency. Although this does give a new meaning to shoe high.

Poisonous? I mean, it's not like you should eat a can, but I dunno about poisonous? Me personally, I love the smell of shoe polish. One of the best smelling places in the world is the G&G factory (and it's not because of Tony's cologne).

I second that. As long that there is balance, there is beauty.

saphir polishes contain some solvents (turpentine perhaps) but yeah It shouldnt be much to worry about. I would be more concerned about the pigments not coming off my fingers. biggrin.gif

talking about good smelling polishes....Tapir brand polishes smell pleasantly citrussy.. the cedar wood aroma of Colonil Diamant is goood too. Both of them are also solvent free...

Those boots are pure sechs.

I think they would look great with brown trousers as well.

The Uppingham is gorgeous. Any more Uppingham pics that others can share?

Mine are about a year old now - current pic.



The vintage Rioja color is great.

Fit looks perfect, but the creases...
post #5608 of 12564
Fit is perfect - creases don't seem too much to me for a pair of shoes that are more than a year old.

Perhaps others will disagree with me? I'm no expert.

How can you wear a shoe and don´t have creases? No problem for me, i think this is the charm with leather. To use it and take care of it and end up with the great patina well used leather gets. Look so much more alive smile.gif

The fit appears to be good, although boldly speaking perhaps the MH71 & TG73 aren't as perfectly suited to gdots foot as some of his other shoes. Needless to say however it's still pretty good for a rtw shoe and many would be content with such a fit.

 

The creases are by no means excessive and no doubt more noticeable on screen rather than in real life. Although I'm sure their appearance is more exaggerated because of gdot's frequent over application of products, this is a theme on all his posted shoes.
