@Shawnc if the squeak is from the leather I usually bick 4/lexol the entire shoe...tongue and inside(lexol) then I let it dry over night the a touch of baby powder on the tongue and were the boot flaps meet and nearly every time the problem is solved after one treatment.

 

Wear them a lot the first week also...that will also work the squeak out.

My cigar cap toe boots (Barrie) from AoM also bloom like crazy and squeak/creak a fair bit. It's slowly getting better.

Hello,

Thank you for your kind words.

Today is Ravello NST.

All of my shell boots squeak. Some more than others. But I actually find the squeak to be therapeutic and calming. Akin to the sound of flowing water or the satisfaction you get from popping bubble wrap. I look forward to it! Sadly, it goes away after a few wears.

This stuff rocks and if you've used it you already know that.

This is a pretty good deal for two jars.
How do you buy it on that site? Sorry new to this site you vote?

I have not tried it, as it worked itself out after a few wearings.

Thanks guys. The creaking already seems a little better. I may try one of the suggestions but quite honestly neither the noise or bloom is that big a deal to me. In all likelihood I'll let the passage of time handle both of them.

Good info though. Again, thanks.

I'm headed to The Shoe Mart here in a few weeks. I'll report what's in the back for everyone here - any sizes folks are looking for?

The price basically drops the more folks buy. I bought some and I thought some others might want in on it.

I just placed an order with Hanger over the weekend... arg...

 

Might fiddle with the order.  Kind of narrow colors, too...  Great deal though...

Is Mahogany the right choice for Color 8?

Honestly, I use the Neutral or "cordovan 71" color for color 8, but 99% of the time, I use neutral.

I also use shell cordovan crème, as opposed to the regular crème polish.

I think the stuff made for shell has more and different oils.
