I've heard its good for cxl as well.  I've been using Bick4 on cxl to nice results though because it doesn't change the color.

Did you find that VSC changed the color of your CXL?  Because I really hadn't noticed that on my Nat CXL.

I like VSC as well. I just have a really difficult time trying to get it out of those little bottles when it is in a big clump

I bought the big metal tin of VSC and put some into empty Reno glass jars to use!  :satisfied:

Forum affiliate gentlemens footwear should be free shipping worldwide for anything

Just to add, I got my Venetian Leather Balm from Viberg the other day and decided to use them on my CXL AE Bayfeilds. They turned out well hydrated and the perfect amount of shine, will continue to use it on my CXL products for sure.

 

 

Also just got some Saphir Cordovan cream and liked the results on my RL Lindricks, next time they need some love I am going to try the Venetian on them and see how it compares.

I've heard Nick Horween himself recommend VSC for CXL.

A question on the subject of (what I will call) "insole impression drop" - the significant room that is created within the first wears from you foot on the cork....

Is the drop / "room" created with the single flex sole the same volume as the double leather? I guess what I am asking (which perhaps no one will know is if the layer of liquid cork used is the same thickness on the double leather and the single leathe soles?

I ask because I just picked up a pair if jcrew single flex bluchers and the only Minor niggle is (if I was being rediculously fussy) is I would like to be able pull the lacing a little tighter. : /

I will definitely be keeping then so the answer to the question is that I will find out soon enough.

Yes he does. I read his blog post just yesterday on the subject, but, of course I can't find it now to post the link.

Nick Horween recommends VSC, but in the same breath he tends to mention a few other conditioners, including neatsfoot oil. However, he does use VSC to condition his own footwear.

 

Take that as you will.

I have the following:
#8 cap toe boot
#8 Dovers
#8 LWB
Ravello medallion cap toe shoes

Expected:
Cigar cap toe boot
Ravello cap toe boot

Anything essential I'm missing? Thinking #8 LHS but I can't think of anything else.

 

I'm on the Leffot preorder for the #8 Dovers, but I haven't seen anything other than retailer photos (google image search) of them, however.  It seems the standard PTB is way more popular, but they have never done it for me.  Have shell Dovers been done much in the past?  Anyone have pics?

I've seen his recommendation of neatsfoot oil as well. That's what I've used on my CXL NST's so far.

Fabulous shoe.  I couldn't agree more... great looking shoe and for me, an Alden-must-have.  Every longwing aficionado should have this pair!  Congrats and enjoy often in great health my friend!
