just purchased a pair burgundy cordovan captoe boots.
Waiting for it to be shipped over
And since this is my first cordovan pair of boots, need some advice on what i should do/buy to keep them lasting through out the years.
I actually intend to buy some saphir cream for cordovan, but the only stockist i manage to find is http://www.hangerproject.com/shoe-care/saphir-mdo.html
and they charge a crazy amount, $100ish for international shipping for a small bottle.
Besides the cream, I'm also planning to buy a horsehairbrush.
And i believe the boots that im getting are using leather soles, so its advisable for me to go visit a cobbler to put on some rubber vibram soles immediately before i wear them right?
On a seperate note, i also need some help on how to maintain my Suede pair of shoes, its a off-white suede, with abit of discolorization , how do i restore it to its former glory? which of saphir other products should i be getting for my suede pair of shoes?
I would need help finding some saphir stockist, i have tried http://www.onthefly.com/product/saphir/pommadier-cream-shoe-polish/30251
, torquato, franco's .. all of them dont stock the cordovan cream.
