What product do you like for “quieting” down leather shoes? Not sure if they’re dry, but I’ve got 2 pairs of Leeds that are loud when I walk. One cordovan and one calf.

I’m sure you know what I mean. Bend your knees and you get that “not quite squeak but loud”

I haven’t been wearing them for a few months due to the whole staying at home thing

The green strands at the store is how the green looks indoors. Outdoors brings out the richness.

Ashley, is this an accurate representation of the current green shell cordovan? I've decided to order the Landon in either green shell or navy shell tomorrow through my SA. If the green shell looks like the shoes being posted here, that would be my first choice. The navy looked more navy than the green looked green when I was at the store yesterday. That was under the artificial light in the store. I suppose the navy would be more useful, but I love the look of the green from the photos being posted in this thread.

And this is the same green shell next to navy

But in dark light, that green looks like navy or even black

This is in direct sunlight outside, but inside, they are very dark. The previous poster was right; you will own both. They morph in various lights.

Is it coming from the upper or the sole? If it's coming from the upper, try saddle soap. If that doesn't work send them to me. I have de-squeaker. No idea what it's made of but it works.
