Just hit it whenever they look a little dry around the creases. And by dry, I don't mean bone or paper dry, just when the difference between toe/quarters and the creases gets past a certain threshold.

Being a new guy, I have to say I have gone thru some of these threads in their entirety. I've found some pretty good info in a decent number of the posts. I've also found that there are some posts much later which include additions to this information where the first member either forgot or wasn't aware of something in a post much later in the thread. Often this occurs because someone else asked the same question or a memeber decided he would share thoughts becasue he thought he knows whats going on or his opinion differs from something posted earlier. Amazing how after even 200 pages on some of the threads how another member rather he be new or old will sometimes bring a different view point sometimes to something that was initially brought up on page one.

 

Oh yeah, then there are those bothersome questions that get answered time again over and over by new members who just showed up thinking they have the right to ask some of the same questions initially asked by older memebers in their earlier youth.You would think on most of this the answers have already been found on everything shoe, and there would be no more need for any further discussion and we could actually close the forum down. Well maybe not close it down, but maybe just stop any further comment or if nothing else somehow ensure a question which had already been asked never alllow it to be asked again. Because after all it had been discussed on page 16 of thread 4 and post number 22.

 

 

I guess you might say the forum is a mixed bag of good and bad, kinda of like life you could say. Anyway I have learned some things and it has been helpfull, but as a newby I still have somethings to learn. Along the way I guess you could say I might make some mistakes and I may even request some help. Is that Ok?

Interesting, never thought about it that way, but makes sense.

I'm feeling horsey tonight:

Out in the wild for the first time with the Lindricks since they got toppied. Cordovan BB belt, Himel Bros horsehide jacket.

Time to hit the bars!

looking good icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

edit: is that your first time wearing them or have you broken them in already? reason I ask is that mine are a bit snug and wonder if I should wear them around the house before I go wear them to work and withstand being on my feet for 8-10 hours...

That is pretty funny. Your posts have been spot on lately. Thought crossed my mind but then I figured who gives an F.

This is exactly what I was thinking - one errant splash of some idiot's misstep (particularly of the teetering, spiked heels kind) and the next post will be "is this fixable?".

Not to say they should be treated like trophies behind glass but out at Friday night drink fests is courting disaster.

Naw, that's what cordo is for. It can take some abuse. They may look like shite on the way home from the bar - but nothing can happen to them that can't be buffed out.

I'd be more worried about blisters etc. etc. with a new pair of boots than anything else. But if you drink enough a blister or two shouldn't be any problem either.

Yeah I agree with this. Worn shell out to all kinds of situations, no real issues yet
