Yes, but I would only recommend you use it on shoes that have caked-on polish from a person who didn't know how to care for cordovan. It has a stripping agent that could damage shell.

Thanks guys.  Sorry for the late response today was my birthday and I was out and about.  I agree with you, I am going to use the SA next time.  I need to find a good one!  Do you have any favorite sales people or stores you normally shop at?  I am going to send pics to the CAC and show them what they sent me.  Let's see what they say.  If they reduce the price I might keep them and take them to the shoe hospital to see if they can fix them. If not for $527 they are going back! 

Avoid the Mebane store.

I use obenaufs HDLP on my leather soles. Great product, smells good too :-D

Got the Natural Oak Streets in today from eBay. They look perfect and are really comfortable.

Yes, that will be killer, but I already have a black shell Dundee, so no plain toe boots for me.

Plus, all my money will be going to antonio meccariello this fall...

All this shell talk and I thought I'd share a quick pic of my (non-AE) vintage Bostonian shell PTBs that I just picked up.
