    If you scuff them, feel they need a polish or they look a bit dry and shabby. There is no strict rule as to how frequently you should polish footwear and it will also depend on what sort of a finish you want on your boots.

    Some folks will polish after every wear, some every couple of weeks, some every couple of months, some will never polish only condition. You just have to find the regimen that works for you.

    Thanks, Richard from shoe healer sent me a kit which included the renovateur and the mink oil just wasn't sure the exact regiment. I perused around the interweb for an idea but everyone seems to have a different opinion from one extreme to another.

    Renovateur and mink oil ?

    Mink oil is considered to be a conditioner. Saphir renovateur is mink oil based and is a cleaner and conditioner. So, go easy with the separate mink oil if you use the renovateur.

    You would typically clean, condition and then polish your boots. Use a cloth/brush to get off all dirt and dust, then use the renovateur and finally the bordeaux polish. If the leather doesn't look dry then you can skip the renavateur.

    I've got that lollipop boot from The Bureau and it's one of my favorites - wear it all the time. The other two are fantastic. Good job going overboard! Richard told me recently that Horween is not doing lollipop cavalier any longer, so it's good to scoop one up while they're still around.

    If that is Horween lollipop cavalier leather, then it doesn't take polish that well, as it's a variation of chromexcel. Nick Horween told me once not to use neats/mink on this version of chromexcel. He suggested renovateur or venetian cream. I use reno + a very very rare application of saphir cream polish in hermes red if i ever need to add a little color in.

    MSAINT did some nice work on his lolipop Stows.
    The Allans I just got are a bit darker and less red than my Stows from a while ago.

    Question 1: does Tricker's use split suede or full-grain suede?

    Question 2: What does SF think of these? LINK

    I wear a 9D in the same AE lasts (probably a 9E in the 2) and a 8UK in Meermin Hiro and Olfe.

    My 8UK in the 4444 is pretty roomy, I'd go with the 7.5UK.

    There's a good explanation here: http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/leathers

    I guess what I'm trying to figure out is how thick the uppers are on the suede Langston model. I have some unlined split suede chukkas from Allen Edmunds, and they can't even support their own weight.

    I saw that you bought some Langstons - how do you like them?

    Them Langstons are okay.
    They're worth it with a 35% off coupon.

    Though, I proxied a pair for a buddy but ended up returning them because the leather was really veiny on one of them.

    I ended up buying a pair of the Langstons in suede from STP for $320 shipped. I'm interested to see how they'll fit into my wardrobe. I'm stoked to get some dressier boots, though.

    The wingtip derbies w/ the Dainite sole looked nice, too - maybe in the future... [​IMG]
