Which shoe polish for navy Edward Green KG's & shoe trees?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I recently aquired a pair of navy Edward Green KG's at their bargain sale price

I was just wondering what shoe polish fello owners use with these shoes? do EG offer a blue polish?

Also as I am in town on the weekend, could anyone tell me how much a pair of EG shoe trees would set me back?

Many thanks

Meltonian has a couple of blue creams but for the real shine Saphir has a blue wax that is great. I have a pair of Lobb midnight blue shoes and that polish makes them look marvelous.

Excellent, I wasn't sure if blue polish was easily available. I shall investigate these.

Thanks for the help.

I've got the same shoes. I've been using black on the top caps, and dark blue on the rest of the shoe - all by Saphir. They generally look black, however in certain light they start to look a little more interesting!

Additionally, I've had difficulty with the laces in both pairs of my KG/EG shoes. They snapped after only wearing them around 10 times. They may just be dried out, but not particularly useful!

Navy polish is available as mentioned. The 202 last really like the epic trees, which are available in the B and S section here these days for 12-15 a pair.

Regards.

I wish there were still more pairs of these shoes kicking around. I picked up the Wine colored version from a forum member and they are fantastic shoes. Unlike the others though, I haven't had any issues with the laces yet. I'd also agree that the epic shoe trees fit the 202 last well.
