crazy.gif I meant DD. Thick soles are too hard on my feet, what with orthotics and all. I like something with more flex, e.g., Alden flex-welt.

I can wear a single Dainite.

i like single dainite as well, its surpringly flexible when compared to the double dainte w leather midsole. also need to check out the tomir sole all the young kids are raving about

Yes. I think i do a pretty decent job, the deco-black blunder notwithstanding... smile.gif

I had been adding black polish to the bleached toe, and it was disappearing. Then like a jack-ass, i try to shampoo it off, and stripped the finishing off of the toes. facepalm.gif

They are now back with GG, hoping for some magic...

Lesson learned, don't mess with crust leather...
post #13003 of 21772
yeah crust leather is no joke; It takes on color easily so i typically just condition and brush. i dont even bother with paste wax but thats because im a lazy ass
