Could pick up a pair of black indy seconds but been on the fence. Too many shell boots and numerous other boots from other makers. I also want to pick up NAT CXL and brown CXL!

I also here that Venetian shoe cream is great and recommended by Horween leather.

Alden brand shoe trees are nice, but not needed versus $10. ones you can get at places like Nordstrom Rack.

I purchased both the other week and they equally get the job done fairly well from a shine perspective. The differences for me are:
1. The Venetian is cheaper
2. The Venetian has a looser more liquidy consistency than the Reno which is a solid cream.
3. The Venetian has a distinctive chemical smell. While the Reno has a unique odor as well, it is more pleasing to me than the Venetian which I cannot stand.

I decided to use the Reno and set the Venetian aside due to the smell and the fact that it is easier for me to apply the Reno in small quantities on my shoes. I don't mind that one is much cheaper than the other.

I'm pretty sure the ones Oak Street have as a kit are the same as the Alden ones. I think they are both made by Woodlore.

I get all of mine from Harry Rosen mens store, here in Toronto.

Checked with my local cobbler re: adding brass eyelets. He doesn't have the machine and mentioned something about the shoe having to be lined AFTER eyelets are installed. I'll give BNelson a call, but looks like its a no go, so I'll be posting my Cigar LWB in 9d if anyone's interested. Just too many Cigar shoes...

Or you could also wait for a 3 for 1 from Jos.A.Bank.  $26 for three sets of shoe trees.  And they're nice trees.
