    I too am leary of that. What type of lotion should I go with?

    Here's a couple of pics of my crepe soles. Please report back here when you receive the Newberg. I also like double monks and hope AE gets it right.

    I've been using the Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion, but I would assume there are better ones out there.

    I tried the suede sneakers on yesterday at the Michigan Avenue store. They're only in full sizes and Ds, and I wear an 8.5EEE, so I tried on a 9D. The toe boxes weren't bad in terms of width, but the arch support was in the middle of the bottom of my foot. They also looked a bit like shapeless loaves of bread.

    They didn't have the smooth leather sneakers in yet, but I don't hold out much hope for those based on the way the suede sneakers fit.

    Do you ever go to the LaSalle St. store? I always go there, but haven't been over to Mich. Ave. Is there much difference?

    My understanding is that Neatsfoot oil will condition and darken them. It is the recommended care product for chromexcel by Nick Horween.

    Are you charged restocking fee of you purchase over the phone from one outlet location and have the shoes shipped to you, but you return them yourself to a different outlet location?

    Thanks

    No restocking fee if returned to outlet in person

    The spring sale (on firsts) should start sometime in mid-late April, right? Or is it the 04/08 date I'm seeing here and there online.

    After a few light coats of VSC, my walnut Strands are now prepped and ready for the 2016 spring/summer engagement party and wedding circuit. While I do regularly employ the Mac Method of damp wiping and brushing Shell Cordovan, I can't remember the last time I used actual product on these shoes.

    They are now two years old and I love the color character they have developed.

    I hope everyone's weekend is going well, as always!
