They do look nice! Was that picture taken around when they were 8 - 9 years old or more like soon after they were purchased? If taken recently how often do you use cream/polish on your shoes?

ad hoc(not timely): they were rather new, unworn. It was my good mood shoe. tangerined, when you wear them. actually, I toned them down a bit. one of the reasons: I have no coulour phobia. I have so many shades to choose from, so i can play...

...is a relative term. I'd call my journey sort of unstructured, so there's still a lot to discover and to learn. pigskin is definitely on the list...

Love that shoe circle photo! I generally only use cream/polish (and mostly just cream) around once ever 3-4 months. Essentially when they seem like they can use it. I don't see why high quality leather needs uber-regular maintenance just building up layers and layers of un-needed cream/polish.

Gerd informed me that another SF participant, Slewfoot, had a pair of the famed Paprika. Slewfoot was kind enough to agree to forward the shoe to me and I thought it would be good to photo document these in this thread. Gerd can fill in the blanks and help tell their story. Hope you enjoy.
