Love the look, but are the shoes gapping as much around your ankles as they appear?

A quality suede shampoo will work to emulsify the oil and lift it from the suede without softening the color. Get some on the leather sole, wash the entire ring and bottom, probably treat the inner shoe also - follow the instructions on the bottle. 

 

Cheap route would be to use some type of dawn dish soap (no odor or color). When it is dry you will really need to treat the suede with a moisturizer - brush it - and use nano tech to finish.  Then always tree that pair after every use.

I think it only appears that way bc I positioned my feet/ankles in an awkward spot, toes pointing straight up, stretching my Achilles. I guess it's not the most flattering pose. These shoes are a smudge big, but not poorly sized.

I was only on the list for about 3 months so if others were recently added hold out hope. They may still call.

This is definitely one of my most wanted boots, so Im happy to have it comming. 6-8 month lead time though which is crazy.

It puts a serious damper on the Viberg decision Monday. hmmm.

Exact same here. Got the Ravello WTs on order. So excited! Decided to hold off on Viberg as a result.

that must be from the oiled sole. I have seen many of those in Tassels.

Ha, I have made the same decision due to recent purchases as well. Although Brandy sounded interesting...

That really sucks. You need to watch what the waterlock soles come in contact with. I had part of one waterlock sole rest against a pair of white golf shoes in my closet and it created a large purple discoloration. Amazingly enough, it disappeared with time. Perhaps that will be the case with your pair, but I doubt it. I'd expect it to act like a couple pairs of reverse chamois pairs I have. That leather has so much oil in it that the entire lining is saturated with grease. It just keeps leaching out.

Very nice.
Angelus #605 gives a little less shine. Probably more appropriate for lighter color shell.

Does anyone has idea on killing the mold on the shoes?

I found out my #8 LWB has mold (the second time.....) on the tip and the punch holes.

I use shoe trees and I let the shoes air out a couple of days before putting them in the closet.

The first time I found the mold, I wiped off the mold and brush the hell out, after several months, it comes again......
