    Similar to you, I use Reno on new shoes because I've got no idea how long they'd been sitting there without being moisturized. Aside from that I don't use it at all. Shoe cream and wax are more than sufficient for taking care of my shoes.

    Went by the Barney's Warehouse sale in NY this morning and they had a few pairs of C&Js from what I saw.

    One size 8 and two size 10 Brown boots on the 348 last 8 eyelets (4 speed, 4 regular) captoe boots with a dainite sole for $320
    One in black of the same boot in size 10
    One pair of black plain toe oxfords in size 11 for $220. Don't recall if it had a leather or dainite sole.

    It was not packed to the gills and there was no line to check out, so I would say not too crazy at all. I got there at about 8:00 and I don't think they had let anyone in yet. I was at the back of the line at one point and it stretched almost the whole block to 7th ave. It took about 5 minutes for me to get inside once they started letting people in.

    Think it was you. Light blue possibly woolen tie? I was shorter Asian guy with quilted jacket in hand. Think I saw you as you were either waiting for them to bring the other side or waiting to get it packed up.

    Nice find. Unfortunately no such luck in 9s. Would have loved to grabbed those, the other captoe boots, or the Finsburys.

    That was me, cashmere tie. Sorry you couldn't find anything. I am sure I looked at you, unfortunately there were quite a few Asians with quilted jackets. That's why we need to get a NYC meet and greet together.

    I don't remember if I made it all the way down to the smallest size but besides the captoe boots in 8 I didn't see anything else.
