His about me page has a picture of him polishing, I have no idea what kind of polish is in that bottle, maybe he is sole dressing the entire shoe?

I have a signed copy of Lewinsky's biography and your post inspired me to check eBay for an approximate valuation. What a pleasant surprise!

(probably not what she said when she smoothed over her dress when getting up)

Thanks to all who replied. I figured they weren't but was not sure. Now that I see the side creases it makes sense.

It's not polish, it's kiwi leather dye if I'm not mistaken. It makes a nice edge dressing when in a hurry and not concerned about mucking up the leather. This line made me chuckle: "we only use the Best Polishes in the Industry". I see.

Black Suede. I'd love these, but am too broke at the moment. My size, too.
