Before I go to bed, I would love to receive your input when you read this. How do you store your shoes? Do you keep them in shoe bags + box or do you keep them open on a shoe rack of some sort? I've been debating which one would be better for the longevity and health of the shoe...

 

Another factor that gets me a bit concerned about leaving the shoes out in the air on the shoe racks is the heat in my house... our house is always at at least 78 degrees fahrenheit (~26 degrees celsius). Perhaps leaving the shoes out exposed in that temperature may be bad for the shoes?

 

I'd love your input at your earliest convenience, gentlemen! Much appreciated in advance!

 

We feel that shoe trees and dust bags are the most important for storing shoes. The rest is up to personal preference as to whether boxes or some kind of organizer is required.

I would love to recommend anyone who wants to deal directly with the EG shop in London to buy from them without any hesitation, their customer service is excellent.

I am really pleased with the way they handled a recent issue I had, great service makes customers feel that they care about developing a long-term relationship which means more than just making a sale. Keep up the good work Robert and thank you to your full team.

Just exchanged them for a new pair. I have been a customer for over 25 years and have always had excellent service.

Speaking of Suede shoes and a dust. I bought myself a Saphir suede brush long time ago, but I found after couple of brushing that the suede is now a bit fluffy and not even like when they were new? Did this rough brush messed the suede? Should I be using the rubber brush instead?

This is the one I have:

I do not use the ones with the metal so i cant speak about its potential (or not) ill effects. I bought one with pig bristles from hanger project. Havent noticed any problems with the suede. I just never warmed up to brushing my shoes with anything made of metal

I use both but the metal ones need to be used only very lightly!

I use a nail brush like the one below instead for brushing my suede shoes, not a fan of the ones that use brass either. Most supermarkers in the Netherlands carry them, they are very cheap and last a long time.

Finally my EG Dovers came in.  I received them on friday together with a pair of JL WII.  Such a lovely day!!.  I am really impress with their quality and finishing.  Unfortunately shoe trees did not came on time.

 

They are 8.5 UK on the 606 last, a bit wider at the toe box compare to the 202 last.  I thank many of you for sizing guidance, but finally I had to try myself different sizes and lasts before ordering.

 

 

Just to mention here that the issue (no relevant at all in this case and just in one of the shoes) comes from the burnishing and not from the leather as I thought.

Steve s was kind of pre-sold on the thread which helped. I also agree that 2500 clams is a fair amount of money. Considering the totality of the circumstances I see why it's still open.

Just continue...it will all even out in the end...dust and dirt can do more harm than the brush. Any fluffiness will even out using the same brush after months...common fear which leads to under-brushing, but as I say this is more damaging.
