    I think you are getting to the crux of the matter there... They are interested in getting you into a shoe that they sell, not in spending their time figuring out that you need a shoe they don't even carry so that they can send you away to someone who does.

    Cooldude I would go to an Allen Edmonds store and get yours shoes. All this time you spent running cost you money and time. When you could have just gone to a store that had the shoe in stock.

    There had to be more to your process then just applying that one product. What else did you use?

    Quote:I would certainly be interested in the navy/orange version as a second. However, my experience with the 1511G last has not been as good as with the 8-678 last. I found that the 1511G lasted shoes pinch my toes, except for the Scottsdale that I am wearing right now. I wonder why they didn't list this shoe as part of the orthotic collection?

    First pair of custom orders landed this week... Fifth Street boot in cappuccino cordovan.
    I had ordered the black and cordovan color Fifths last year and wanted to round out the collection.
    I am VERY impressed with the color and craftsmanship of these boots. The pic below is pretty much how they came out of the box (i.e. Flawless) as I have only brushed them lightly for this first set of pics.

    For comparison, I took a pic of the new Fifths with the older McA cappuccino I got during last spring's webgem. The older McA has lightened up a bit over time but maintained the reddish brown hue. I applied some AE dark brown cordovan polish to the McA just before this pic to deepen the color.

    Second custom order should be landing this coming week and the third is hitting final inspection soon!

    It is the same color that came originally on the McA cappuccino make up... not exactly sure of the name, but I believe it is called natural.

    what's the difference between premium shoe polish and the carnauba wax polish?

    I already have the renovateur if that matters.
