a good brushing and then leather grease. i want them arrive quite raw at their new homes. understood that there are people who claim that you cannot shine a shoe after you treated the uppers with leather grease. i call bs on this.

no, the boots are mud colour and the norweger is mud with an olive hue. i was afraid, i wasn't able to catch it in the pictures.

oh, thank you. i was introduced to this method by the grandchild of an old master in shoemaking. it's mainly to preserve the leather, especially for storage. i have no strict regiment for it.

understood that leather reacts differently. some takes a shine from the start, while others need to polished with a brush or cloth. depends mainly on your preferences.

i can proxy it for you as i need stuff myself. i will pm you on this.

thank you for your kind words. much appreciated.

let's give another shout out to our friend rikod. he got them from his wife for his fiftieth birthday. it cannot get better, imo. I discovered them three years ago and I was wondering, who'll get them. when rikod told me about this special present, i tried to make it happen. it worked. what a great story.

well, that's, at least for me, the biggest distinguishing feature between curating the legacy of a shoemaker and selling shoes from a serial production. with the latter you have second chances and you can exchange numbers. certainly both demands certain skills and a profound knowledge of the product.
