    Is the Soles4Souls promotion eligible on factory second purchases? Has anyone tried it?

    Florida, unfortunately
    A downward stroke of the brush seems to work most of the time. I also steal a mini q-tip from my baby's changing table sometimes. They sell swabs with a tiny tip for infants- but a toothpick would seem practical too!

    This. I've never worried about getting polish out of the holes of my Strands.

    Wow, those look quite nice. And they are only $416.00! Quite a bit cheaper than any AE or Alden Shell.

    Actually, a little less, because you get to deduct VAT. Shipping to the US is 35 euro for up to 2 pairs.

    I think they use Comipel instead of Horween shell. Lots of discussion in general on the Meermin board: http://www.styleforum.net/t/277707/meermin-carmina-2nd-brand/4680#post_6199531

    Thanks for this tip! I just snagged the pair in brown with some cordovan care cream. Burgundy would have been better, but for this price I couldn't pass it up. This will be my second pair of shell in a week! I couldn't use the Soles4Souls promotion, though. I guess after a certain markdown the promotion becomes invalid.

    Me too, so I now DO have to look for an AE outlet where a McTavish 11.5D Walnut is available...

    Cause I'm an asshole and I'm ok with it.



    No, you said a brush each time you purchase a pair of shoes. Are you new? 30 pairs of dress shoes is nothing around here.
