When I use it, it smells like something familiar but I can't quite place it.
Smells like Armor All to me.post #81003 of 1224165/6/14 at 12:12pmpost #81004 of 1224165/6/14 at 12:14pmpost #81005 of 1224165/6/14 at 12:18pmpost #81006 of 1224165/6/14 at 12:35pmpost #81007 of 1224165/6/14 at 1:09pm
So lets say I wanted to overpay for a pair of 9.5D or 10D Cigar boots - Jumpers, Cap Toe, Indy, whatever I could find. Where would I look? This might be a total newbie question, but I don't see anything on ebay or here. Is this just that rare that they rarely get listed and when they do they disappear?post #81008 of 1224165/6/14 at 1:14pmQuote:Originally Posted by chrisefi

But, you are asking a lot.
Cigar is hard to come by "at the drop of a hat".post #81009 of 1224165/6/14 at 1:16pmpost #81010 of 1224165/6/14 at 1:20pmpost #81011 of 1224165/6/14 at 1:22pmpost #81012 of 1224165/6/14 at 1:52pmQuote:Originally Posted by ReppTiePrepster
I too, like the color variation in cap toe models...
However, if you do not prefer the variation, there is a simple way to even-out the light colored (almost pink) shade where color 8 shoes crease.
1) Wipe down with warm, damp cloth.
2) Apply very thin layer of color 8 paste wax to area and let sit for a couple of minutes.
3) Buff with soft cloth.
4) Apply another very thin layer of black paste wax to the area and let sit for a couple of minutes.
5)Buff with soft cloth and brush.
I have NOT done this to any of my color 8 shoes, but a local Alden dealer does this for customers who complain about the creasing and discoloration that comes with the creasing. They get good results and their customers come back for more shell!
Thanks for the info. I'm not so concerned where I'll try and do this evening out but I'll keep it in mind in case it continues to bother me.post #81013 of 1224165/6/14 at 1:58pmpost #81014 of 1224165/6/14 at 2:05pmpost #81015 of 1224165/6/14 at 2:16pmQuote:
There are some available in Germany. Might not be so much more expensive if you don't get hit with taxes and fees.
It says they're in E width, but I'm not sure how Germany measures their widths, it might actually be D? (Since there are also EE available, wouldn't make sense to me to only have E and EE widths.)
