Who is they? I use Reno on my calf shoes before polishing.

Sometimes an excess of neutral polish or wax can cause a milky white appearance if too much is used. I use neutral polish and wax with no ill effects.

Actually, technically that is the Logo for Alden's Orthopedics line. I asked about it at one of the shops. :-)

I just received a TSM Whiskey Shell LWB. It's the same color as my DC Ravello LWB from a couple of months ago. I either have a dark Whiskey or light Ravello.

Alpine? Remind me where you got them again?
Thank you. Yes, alpine.
Mine are from citishoes, maybe 3 months old. Unionmade has a similar makeup as well.

If be interested in either flat waxed or leather, though with the smaller eyelets the latter might be hard to find in the right thickness. Open to suggestions...
Lucky. The pair I got has loose grain. It was a replacement pair any how I got free of a charge after a year due to defects. Not sure how much a defect loose grain creasing is considered other than aesthetically.

Really like those, MrDV.  Does anybody know if these are the same grain used here:

Seems a different shade to me, but I am colorblind :brick:

What the heck? Can you post comparison pictures? Check the numbers inside each pair, must be a mistake. Wow, I,ordered these, I hope the soles are light.

This picture was posted the other day and they could easily be mistaken for recent batch of ravello from DC....

Anyone else not have a great experience with getting rare shell from AoC? Everyone says Adam is awesome and just email him. However I basically get "no idea when we'll ever get or do rare shell... watch styleforum". Do his preorders usually get posted here or am I just getting blown off?

That is not an uncommon response. I have gotten something similar in the past.
