    I went with a nice belt from Saks that matched the walnut exactly. For half the price, albeit, thinner.

    If AE belts went on sale more often I would not mind picking some up. I have a basic wide, brown AE belt, and it is well made with a solid buckle.

    I've seen those in store, the merlot is a nice color. They look a bit dark brown in your pic though.

    Amazon puts the AE belts on sale occasionally and an AE store will match the Amazon price. I pick up AE dress belts for $70 this way. Also check out Nordstrom. I have a John W. Nordstrom belt that I picked up at the Rack for $25 that is a perfect match for my walnut Strands.

    I bought a pair of Allen Edmonds Clifton in Walnut colour recently

    - How should I care for them ? What conditioner and polishing items would I need ?

    - I am using some random shoe trees at the moment. Should I specifically get AE shoe trees ?

    Conditioner, and Premium AE shoe polish in walnut should do the trick. Most people do not like a high shine with these, so that combination will work to give them a nice appearance, without the high gloss finish. You can add the wax polish, neutral color, if you want that high gloss finish. Lastly, get the edge dressing, in neutral.

    As long as the trees are made from ceder, and do a good job in stretching the shoes back to the original shape, they should do just fine.

    Thanks but i'm not sure what I need from the below link. Assistance much appreciated :)

    Will be getting a black AE as well. So preferably if i can get shoe care which serves purpose for both colours will be beneficial, if possible at all

    Just get some Conditioner and AE walnut premium shoe polish (it's a wax/cream hybrid).
    Use the conditioner first. Then apply the walnut shoe polish. I recommend applying a second layer of the polish after the first one for your first time.

    What do you guys think of the Neumora vs the old mora? It's finally out in stores:

    Is the neumora better than the "old" mora?
