    Already answered, but for future reference, the details under the shoe on their website will show what last the shoe is on. When you go to allenedmonds.com and just click "shoes" at the top left, it will shoe everything and you can sort by last along the left hand side.

    Pretty helpful if you are looking for a particular last, collection, etc....

    Thanks for the help, I just figured I'd ask on here since I guess the Clifton got discontinued and is no longer on their site so I couldn't find out that way and figured someone on here would know.

    Interesting. I got the exact same e-mail from AE customer service telling me to use the natural edge dressing a year ago. As I said before, I am going to have to try the chili dressing because I am not all that satisfied with the natural dressing. As 7FoldTieGuy acknowledged, it does not do much to cover up nicks in the sole and heel.

    Oh shit i had no idea they were discontinued... I was always partial to the Sanford anyways, but after trying both on, i look like an old man wearing black bluchers lol

    Anyways, Nordstroms still has them readily available, so their website says

    I dont believe they are discontinued, they are just somewhat exclusive to Nordstroms (and not to :spam: but I do have them available thats why I said "somewhat" exclusive)

    I am probably not following an "approved" routine, but I purchased both the premium polish and a wax polish (Kiwi wax actually not the AE brand) and use both.
    The premium polish in the tube seems to have both some conditioning and some polish, but didn't achieve the shine I was looking for.
    Based on this, I added a very thin layer of Kiwi wax on top of the AE premium polish and the shine came out with a little brushing and a spritz of water on a nylon type polishing glove.
    This seems to work good for all my calf shoes.

    A very good idea. One of these days soon I intend on posting a photo of my AE fleet.
