You won't be able to order directly from Alden.

Depending on availability at the factory, you can buy the shoes through some stores and they'll have Alden ship them to you direct from factory. Believe this is generally the case for standard models e.g. black and #8 PTB, LWB, LHS, etc... I'm sure The Shoe Mart will do this and I'd suspect the Alden stores do too.

First, there is much about this sequence that is amazing. From a great pair of chukkas to how a little VSC made them look as good as new. I will be very curious how the saphir works out. When I first joined this forum there were a few discussions on Reno versus VSC and I could not imagine anything better than saphir. Well I ran out of saphir a couple of months ago and picked up what will likely be a lifetime supply of VSC. As someone who has used them both I will say that VSC is definitely better, especially if you're after that 'dipped in liquid glass' look, which I like. Will be interested in your thoughts.

Might be looking to move these. I've fallen out of a love a bit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I've had a few pm's about the shoes. They are a 12d in the barrie last. Still on the fence about selling.

Did you use NEUTRAL VSC ?  Thank you.

Yes. To be honest, I didn't realize there was any other kind.

All the VSC that I've ever seen available is neutral. I've never had VSC or Saphir Renovateur change the color of my leather, though, so I wouldn't worry.

Where'd you find those?
post #72521 of 87603

Thanks for responding so quickly, and for the info.  I will check with them.

I've never seen the jars before. Those seem to be a bit more similar to Saphir Renovateur. I'd stick with the standard stuff: http://www.amazon.com/Fore-Supply-Co-Neutral-Venetian/dp/B00A6GAT0Y

Same here. Works great and for $40 shipped, the size will likely last a lifetime.

Never seen VSC before. I use Renovateur but would be willing to switch. Too bad I can't seem to locate any in Canada!
