Acorn can handle the rain no problem but wet patches do show up a lot until they dry out. Kudu probably a better choice.
Water just beads on my zug grain Ilkleys, it doesn’t tend to soak in at all unless they get extremely wet which is rare.
That creasing looks quite minimal to me, if you make sure you use shoe trees they shouldn’t get any worse.
I haven’t used Venetian shoe cream but I think that’s more of a conditioner to be used once in a while. The AE shoe cream is for more frequent use and covering scuffs etc. It should also...
The creases don’t look too bad to me.
You can soak the shoe completely immersed in water for about 10 minutes and then leave them to dry with shoe trees inserted. This works as I have tested it before.
I took the shoe trees out after a couple of days to help dry the inside of the shoe.
Sounds good! Rogerson shoes do something like that. I like the look of them but since I have a Coniston it seems too similar for me to own both.
The Pembroke has been a favourite of mine for a long time but I always seem to end up with something else!
Never realised they had done a Coniston in that leather. It looks to have aged very nicely. I was hoping they would lighten up a bit in areas of wear and not just stay a uniform dark brown or nearly black.
Thanks for that.
Lovely boots, I’ve always quite liked them. They tend to be expensive over here compared to Northampton boots.
The polish should wear off fairly quickly. I don’t think people usually use polish on CXL. It’s great leather.
