No, but I'll try to here in the next day or so. I use a small, small amount (mostly on the toes and heel area and any other scuffs) but I like the color change over time.

Sorry I never knew the name they're just some Chamois leather Cap toes. They look pretty much like they do in the second pic, the first one was edited so details could be seen. And relax guys, no need for the tough love. This is the just the way I've always worn any of my shoes, jeans or jackets. I don't see a fine line between 'wearing them because they're meant to be worn' or 'massive misuse'. I just see boots. When the soles die on me i'll get them resoled. No big deal.
Apologies for the 'handcrafted' bit, I didn't know!

whiskey-kiwi tan
ravello-kiwi light brown

apply wax only after a minimum of eighteen wearing

Leffot in the west village is great. Very friendly and helpful every time I stop by and he always has interesting makeups.

Luckily, the post holiday blizzard in NY gave me a great chance to see exactly how durable they were.

Tried and tested. I can officially say that I'm impressed. I don't know too many boots that could have withstood that storm.

Did you get these from the NYC Alden store? I think I got the same same pair (40705), I think they're kudu cap toe on barrie last (last confirmed by email with alden), I posted a pic a few pages back http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/n.../photo-8-1.jpg

Horsey , I don't own those (yet) , I'm still trying to milk the info out of the guy who posted that photo originally , all I know is they aren't from NYC or any well known dealer sorry

How have you found the unlined eyelets? That was a turnoff for me when I saw them. I notice you have faux lacing, which seems a smart thing to do with them. Regular lacing with the unlined eyelets looked odd in person.
