1) Great looking Lindricks
2) Do you use Fine Boot Cream on cordovan often? I have always wondered about this product. Alden makes it in Burgundy, which to me implies they intend it to be used on Color 8 cordovan. I know Alden San Francisco uses it on cordovan. However, Alden itself advises people not to use "cream" on cordovan (of course we know that Saphir makes a great cordovan cream). I was looking at an Alden Valet Kit and was surprised 4 types of boot cream were included but only 3 kinds of paste wax. I wonder if I should use this product more.

Thank you.
I do not use the boot cream often, but I do like the results. I bought it at alden sf, after the sales rep showed me how it works. I stick to brush and buff most of the time, but do use Reno or this cream when needed.

Just tried this on my new McCallum's.  Worked like a charm.  Thanks.

I have been told by the Alden factory that the boot creams are for calf only. That said, if it works - it works.

As an aside, Alden's neutral boot cream is one of my favorite products for calf. I have it in nuetral, dark burgundy, and black.

My Marlow's become scratched like that when I brush them. Buffing will then sort them out completely. I would be very concerned if dry spots like the one in your photos appeared! Any update dude - did you apply reno / cordo cream etc?

MrDV has convinced me that the Lindrick is a must add boot. I look forward to the next sale...

The lindrick is in fact a must add for the boot/cordovan fan. It is fantastic. MIne have slight variations of cordovan shade on vamp and toe whereas MrDV's look very dark. Either way a beautiful shoe.

Agreed. I have said it before but it is worth repeating: the Lindrick is one of the best looking shell boots made, regardless of maker. nod[1].gif

^ Must agree. They are extraordinary and always draw looks and comments.

Beautiful boots and a great combination with the pants. Any details on the pants?

I have honestly not worn my Gianni's yet, so I can't tell you if it has happened to mine, but I will be greatly disappointed.

Why is it doing this? How do you fix it? More brushing just makes it worse. Usually buffing gets rid of it but it's a crapload of work.

the dry spots are course like fine sandpaper. first noticed it about a week after I purchased the boots, maybe I need to find a brush made from a horse fetus as the STAR brand horse hair brush ive been using is too rough for the shell. applied venetian afterwards and let the boot absorb the cream but didnt brush. wore them this weekend and fortunately didnt get any worse. oddly enough left boot is also afflicted in the same area. Both toes, however are smooth and supple so Im not too worried Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
