Ive got four pairs of shell cordovan shoes that i wear in rotation, the oldest being 2 years old. I have never used wax on my shoes. Just give them a good brushing before wear. Please share your thoughts on not waxing my shells at all? Is waxing necessary, in that does lack of it deteriorate the leather over time?

I know about the Mac method et all but would you say that shell needs waxing at least twice a year or something (my shoes are not exposed to much dust and dirt)

Lastly is Alden/Kiwi paste wax good enough or do forum members feel using Saphir cordovan cream would be a good investment over Alden wax to ensure longevity and good looks?

As much as I love this makeup, yesterday I wore my Leffot 975s with the antique trim, and I'd have to rate those a bit above these.

Love the ravello w brass sazon.

I wonder what will ever happen to my whiskey LWB order from Alden Madison. I wish I knew Alden SF had a run, I would have picked up my pair from them.

According to my contact at LSW, the answer is yes. Black shell too.

Blasphemy to some (not me). And certainly a testament to the power of 8. biggrin.gif

I can assure you an 8 d is not available lol. I had the gentleman who helped me digging in the back room. He stated they had a few pairs left, I didn't inquire beyond that. TBH I was mote concerned with what they didn't have .
