I also ordered the tankers on the second pre-order and recieved them last week or the week before.
I really had to get use to the barrie and trubalance lasts. Felt a little odd having so much room in the toe box, caused me to second guess my size. Only after numerous measurements did I accept it is just how these lasts are, with that said the heel slip should not be pronounced. I am one that does not believe that issues with fit in store will get dramatically better with time.
thanks be. i have a #8 only brush and ocd. the brush is clean and in good order. i did hear someone mention a boar brush recently.
thanks, i have a german product "collonil" I've used it on my navy suede leffot lwbs. the spray did not change the color, but navy was already pretty dark to begin with. i will try nano when i run out of the can i have (which may be in years, i don't spray my suede often).
thanks for your input Alcibiades.
Not that I don't believe youbut a picture of all four of them side by side would be appropriate following your statement
I have used suede sprays from AE, Meltonian, and Tarrago. None of them have darkened my suede (Alden's snuff and mocha kid; EG's nutmeg).
