Sevenfoldtieguy, on the Leeds vs bradley question, I find they are about the same. I find the Leeds feel a bit more snug at first, but that is likely due to the double sole and storm welt. Once they are both broken in, they feel about the same to my foot. When I get my Bradley's resoled in a year or so, I plan to request a double sole but without the storm welt. Thanks for your perspective on the AE shell cream. I have used only that, Reno, and kiwi. I found the AE shell cream was good at adding color, but had to be used in extreme moderation.
