Here's some pic's of well worn RL chukkas on eBay. They look pretty awesome - much better than on the website. I must admit to being pretty tempted by these. Maybe as a whiskey MTO anyone?

Also, there's a very odd looking Frankenshoe I see listed on eBay. A shortwing monkstrap of all things! When did RL offer this thing then?

I will never understand why some people forgo shoe trees with well made shoes; employing their use helps maintain the upper, especially with Dainite and other flexible non leather soles.

These have definitely appeared during the last three years or so.  RL always tries to throw a new Marlow/Darlton variation in the mix every so often, with varying amounts of success.

That ebay seller sausages234 often has oddball C&J for RL shoes. I remember he had those frankenmonks a while ago.

Holy cow, those are definitely need some TLC!!! Yeah, those boots would have been much better served having had trees in them... :-/ I think that the seller likes the rugged look or something.

Did some maintenance on my Marlows today and got some good photos of them.

 

 

 

Too bad they're really a half size too big for me... They are one of my all-time Grail shoes.

Quantimil, nice looking wingtips. It seems to me that if they're a half size too big this would allow you the room to put a nice cushiony insole in them, thus turning a very stiff brogue into a super comfy walker. Just an idea.

It was recommended that you continue to brush these. While I don't necessarily disagree with that, I would be careful. I have had C&J shell boots before where brushing did nothing more than take the finish right off - leaving a streaky appearance on the upper. I eventually returned them.

OP's post is not clear on whether he is just getting the factory polish off and getting down to the bare shell or if the actual finish is flaking off.  If the former, keep brushing.  If the latter, I had the same thing happen and adding Renovateur or Saphir cordovan cream took care of it.

What boot was that Seven?  Never have had any issues with C&J shell, you guys must brush like crazy?
