A little less expensive.  I have 4 of em.  Made in Germany.  High quality.  Bought some daubers from them too since I was already paying for shipping.

I've had good luck with my Allen Edmonds brush, and they have free shipping.  I think you can also get it through Amazon using Amazon prime.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. ElDave, i feel the same way about shell saddle combos.

There's something special about the color/shine on those. Nice job.

Sorry if this is a dumb question... I notice light and dark colored horse hair brushes. Does the color of the bristles matter? i.e. am I supposed to be using the light brush on certain colors and the dark on certain colors? Or does it not matter?

+1 on the AE Brushes. This may be a bit overkill, but I like to have two brushes for each color shell. I like to have one that is stiffer for removal of dust and dirt, and then one brush that is softer for polishing before using my cloth. I have also found the AE polishing cloths work well for the final part of the method.

No. That is just different color horse hair.

I scored bigtime today at our local Alden store in Dusseldorf, Germany.

 

A nice pair of Indy Boots, marked down at 399,- Euro. That'll be about 540,- USD, not extraordinary for you living in the states, but in Germany... WOW!!

 

Had to size down one full size, same as RW GTs. They were very comfy right off the box, unlike GTs. I hope they last on me as long as my trusty GTs...

 

I plan on not stressing these too much, keep them broken in nicely, but do not abuse them. For example, I might not want to wear these at rock festivals ;-)

 

Next question: care products for these boots?

 

My regular care routine would be to give them an initial boot oil treatment and after that (tomorrow, when the oil is soaked in completely) some leather protection like obenauf.

 

Is this a good thing to do with these boots?

 

I'm really happy now...

You might also consider the Alden polishing cloths, which are much larger than the AE ones.

Yes. I am sure they would work as well. nod[1].gif
