Picked up my first pair of EGs (Doak Galway) and was wondering what you guys do before first wear. Some saphir renovateur, nano protector, polish...? What's your general go to?
post #22623 of 28989

Has anyone directly ordered from Edward Green in the U.S.? What is the process at U.S. customs? Do they hold the shoe until you pay the customer duty? Any approximate figure of the custom duty?

 

I was thinking of ordering the Shannon MTO boot either through Saks in Chicago or directly from Edward Green. Edward Green has quoted me a price but I am assuming that it will be higher once US import duty is added. Saks is too slow with the MTO process. I recently ordered a Beaulieu but it took them 3 weeks to get me a price quote and place an order with Edward Green.

 

Plus, I was thinking of going with one color leather in the Shannon. I already have 3 EGs, all in Dark Oak. I was thinking of Bronze or Slate color. Any opinions of the two colors?

 

Thank you

Nothing when they are new, I just wear them and when they need a bit of cleaning I just use a bit of the EG shoe polish

Most times you can pay when you pick up the shoes. UPS used to bill me afterwards, as of late they get payment on pickup.

They were just finished (polished) before leaving the factory so nothing is really required. Besides the less is more approach is generally best approach unless your looking to spit shine or you might be thinking of adding a bit more water protection of some kind. Personally I stay away from that Reno stuff as it is harsher than most conditioner cleaners and for the most part you'll be removing more of the factory finish than anything else. Go ahead give it a shot, but checkout all of the Doak you'll be leaving on the rag and not your shoe when using Reno for the first time.

I heard that but hanger project says to add Reno first then let it sit then buff then apply cream & then wax etc. would you recommend that for EG Stcrispin etc I have only done it once. Still looking to find match for doak

Yeah, but why in the Hell would someone want to begin by removing perfectly good finish from brand new shoes in the first place?

I wonder why.

Maybe @rydenfan will disagree with me but I think chukka Banbury or Silverstone would look good on 606 last.

Never met a chukka I didn't like...

I think a Banbury would look great

You are absolutely correct, so saphir renovateur actually strips the finish of a shoe? I was under impression it helped the shoe etc after reading on hanger project site. Just surprised he would recommend that on a new shoe. Specially if it messes up the new finish etc dam lesson learned will not do that again.
