if it has dried naturally already which i assume it has. for me i just usually do a good vigorous brushing. i find my oldest pair of cordo's do the water spots consistently with just light moisture touching them. i have to brush them after drying to clear them up.

horsehair brush obviously.

70% off at Jos A Banks right now. I usually prefer split toe shoe trees but cannot beat $7.50 a pair and free shipping on orders over $50

I took advantage and got several pairs. They're pretty good quality and smell fantastic!

It's from particle deposits after the water evaporated... just brush vigorously.

Thanks fellas, just some elbow grease and they`re almost non-existent. Also, anyone else use a deer bone to smooth out the edges of the leather sole? The bottom most heel layer that tends to protrude out with wear, I managed to flatten by boning then I just covered with black cream again.

A very little work indeed unless you wiped them down before the pic. Lol. That shell looks so good in the sunshine. Beautiful boots sir. Now back to work!

Just got an email from J Crew saying the shoes I ordered during the most recent coupon snafu are backordered until January. I could care less as long as I'm not charged until then. I wonder if J Crew puts heat on Alden to get a clue when it comes to output levels and delivery dates?

When was your original waitlist date?

+1 Here. I love that boot. Didn't realize they were MTO. I was guessing they were from Kathy at DC. Thy look like a black boot version of the Ravello medallion bluchers that DC had offered in the past.

Gosh. My waitlist date is for december. That probably means my date is pushed back too. Strange because I haven't received an email yet, although when I check my order status, the site is saying that there is some sort of error.

You have to spent it with  mixture of water with a little white vinegar in, because they are are salts...

...one spoon white vinegar in a cup of cofee water...rub the spot with a damp cloth and let dry...

Probably depends on what you ordered. I bought a pair of the dark brown calf LWBs.
