It's coming from J. Gilbert. I ordered it along with #8 NST boots and some shoe trees, but they ran out of Defender when the boots shipped. I don't remember if I paid tax or shipping initially, but they're not charging me again for shipping the Defender. You might want to inquire if they will ship USPS Priority Express? … could be pretty cheap and it only takes a day or two.

I'd advise against the neutral. Use brown wax if you really need to add color, Saphir Reno or Venitian shoe cream for some shine. My go to has been to just brush the hell outta them. There is so much dye in cxl that it evens out on its own. Just my 2¢.

great makeup. is there a specific model that doesn't have the "split" seam down the front, or is that an just an NST without it (simply a design choice for the AF1)?

They don't sell any shoes at the factory in Massachusetts do they?

But if I'm a 8.5d Barrie, do I go for the same size or 9 as this pair is in the grant last

9D - my Barrie lasted shoes/boots.
