The second pic is frameworthy (assuming those are your wife's toes, otherwise it's walletworthy).

Actually, they're Alden x Leffot.

I'm still waiting to hear back from Leffot if they're going to run those navy suede LWB again next season - I'm still dying to get those in my size.

These are excellent. The broguing and the color are both very nice. Are they on the Hampton last?

Need help finding out what is the best way to get the saphir renovateur suede spray here in the states, ive searched tirelessly to find the "neutral" color spray to care for my Aldens, clarks, and visvim shoes. Only black is available at most places, hoping someone in this thread can point me in a direction, or if there is some sort of method for getting it over here from abroad, maybe a slow waterway shipping option, sounds funny but new laws say these areosol cans cant come here and i assume its through the air due to pressurized planes.

Any help would be great, thought i would ask here as this is a heavily trafficked thread and its for the purpose of maintaining my aldens and other suede shoes.

Thanks in Advance

No, he's looking for the aerosol spray can product.

This stuff http://www.valmour.com/cleaning-products/suede-renovator-saphir-medaille-dor-spray,49
only from a US based retailer since it's difficult to ship aerosol cans.
I'm surprised they don't make a pump spray version.

Sad day. I sold my black shell cordovan wingtips on eBay. They were too big. I got $280 for them and ordered a replacement pair from NRO with the July 4th sale price, $471. They emailed me and told me the order would be delayed about two weeks. Just received an email from them today telling me they cannot fill my order. Guess I won't be doing business with them again, or attempting to do so.

Now I have a dilemma. Do I send my old J&M Crown Aristocrafts, black wingtips, back for recrafting and get a different pair of Aldens? Or, go ahead and order the shell wingtips? This could be fun after all.

If you're only concerned with keeping the vamp and toe box nicely shaped, then I suppose you'd probably be good with those. Just my $0.02.

Thanks for that explanation.
