Yes, but I'd suggest waiting a while. Once done it can't be undone, and the stitching will darken over time from bright white to somewhere between off white and tan, depending on how you use your boots and how dirty they get.
If you intend to Topy ... there is no added benefit to getting the JR premium soles
Any thoughts on where I might track one down?
Thanks guys, and have a good weekend.
You can find a lot of info in the Wolverine 1000 mile boots thread. Horween and Oak Street Bootmakers recommend Venetian shoe cream, as needed, for moisture. I haven't delved too deeply into it just yet.
recently scored these beauties
cigar shell cordovan nst, barrie last, 8.5D
i didn't realize it was the barrie when i got them
so sadly its the wrong size and I'll have to sell them (if anyone is interested let me know)
but that doesn't mean i can't marvel at them for a few days first.
good looking ravello today, guys. i am jellies for sure.
I have used both Saphir Reno and Venetian shoe cream on my natural CXL boots. Both worked well. CXL doesn't really need much care. There's so much oil in them that all that's probably needed is good brushing or maybe a damp cloth if they get dirty. Every so often, a treatment with Reno or VSC for moisture and conditioning and you're good to go.
