nephew,

it does not matter

Anyone here in the forum use below process to protect new shell shoes?  The below is pulled from the Alden of Carmel site.

 

 

"Recently, a good customer of Alden shoes offered these care tips for brand new shell cordovan shoes, in order to help protect the leather from water and other elements.

Using a fine cloth, apply a very thin layer of paste wax (not cream) on the shoes.  Rub this paste wax in very carefully for about 5 minutes.  Wait 1/2 hour and repeat process.  Then wait another 1/2 hour, and repeat process a third time.

After this, dip the same fine cloth in water, and rub thoroughly in a cicrular motion until the shine begins to appear.  (The cloth should not be really wet.  The cloth should just be dipped in water for a very short time, so that the cloth is damp.)  But if you rub thoroughly you should see a very thin film of water on the leather for a short time.

When dry, brush with a soft horse hair brush, then polish with a soft cloth."

Can anyone identify this last?

It's not the modified, is it?

Ok, a little - perhaps very little- Alden Shell Cordovan humor: I have entitle this picture "Two Horse Shoes in the Snow."

Thanks, guys.

I hadn't heard of this last before. Is it limited to Japan?

I believe it is more of an orthopedic line (e.g., TruBalance, TruFlare, TruSquare) but I do not think it is typical of their regular lines. Maybe Moulded Shoes here in NYC can still get them.

Here's the answer -- apparently they did not clear this mailing list idea with Alden corporate, and when they found out about it they said no (like they seem to do with most marketing ideas), though the impression I got from Kathy was that it was the kind of no that might be reconsidered, but I wasn't optimistic. A couple years ago I talked to Kathy about putting on a customer event, sort of like a trunk show. She loved the idea but corporate would not allow it. Alden is very strange in many ways…..

Absolutely awsome shoes.  I had my hands on a pair of those at Alden DC when I was there last year.  I was drooling then, and I'm drooling now!
