You may use Saphir Renomat to remove the old wax/pigment residues. I have used Renomat on some Ravello's that were "mistreated" with dark wax pastes with good results.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I think it's time to apply some renomat.

Great looking boots Luisep. Was it your intention to use a #8 shell boot for work, or was it just a matter of happenstance? And, what sole do your tanker boots have? Thanks, be

El, I like the rolls on your boots. They also look very classy with a good shine.

loving this. btw, i was at a local cobbler in Sacramento and the guy was offering metal eyelets for $2.50/each eyelet and speedhooks for $3.50/each in silver, black, dark brown and brass. I think i might get one of my Alden #8 boots retrofitted with brass metal eyehooks ala fransboone. Just thought id throw it out there since im sure you can find a similar value out in the ol' west

Thanks for that info - I still haven't replaced the missing eyelet. Should probably get around to doing that... :shame:

El, which laces are in your captoe boots?

post #63579 of 98616
haha, i figured only because it wasnt a big deal for me either. i think i actually prefer a boot without any top eyelets or speedhooks. i never have a functional need to lace up all the way anyhow

Saphir cordovan cream in burgundy and dark brown will add color. Do not use it if you don't want color. Further, Saphir cordovan cream in neutral will slightly darken whiskey. Again, do not use it if that is not your desired effect. Personally I like the neutral for whiskey. The colored creams are mostly used on my non-Alden shells to give them more life (e.g., turning AE's "old" burgundy from a burgundy/brown mix to a more true burgundy). My Alden shells typically get reno or Alden paste wax - and sparingly at that.
