    We all decide which rules we want to keep and when. Bals as true dress shoes is one of the rules I keep 100% of the time.

    But I actually don't disagree that the Neumok would work with certain chinos and jeans (agree on no Neumoks and slacks or suits, unless a casual linen or cotton suit), even if it's not what I'd wear. I was more making the statement, "especially not those jeans."

    I know you might be all bored with anything to do with the Krause boots so I'll make this my last mention of them. [​IMG] I finally got around to treating the Wolverine/AE Krause boots in russet that I got. I took guidance from some others that have done this as I thought the boots looked too red and "plain" out of the box for my liking. I did not treat with any conditioner first as I wanted maximum penetration of the black polish/cream. I know this may be cheating but I wanted a more worn look and also thought it might aid in the penetration of the black cream so I actually massaged the boots, bending the leather back and forth and softening it up, mostly along the top edges of the vamp and along the eyelets.

    Here's a before picture:
    [​IMG]

    Here's the after picture. I actually used the black cream polish on the raw edges as well (thanks to Mario Impemba for the idea). I was quite pleased with the overall result. Ok, I'm done.

    Nice job. Looks great, and much better than out-the-box. Nice laces, too.

    Another good time to get shoe trees from Jos. A Bank. Seriously, how does this business model work?

    1. Free shipping, no minimum, guaranteed holiday delivery
    2. Buy 1 get 2 free, entire site, mix and match
    3. Buy another, get 3 more free, mix and match
    4. Free Android smartphone with any purchase (requires activation)

    So for $50, you can get 7 shoe trees and a smartphone, shipped.

    Good Afternoon Gents

    I will be putting up a pair of shoes for sale, just want to give you the heads up.

    Shell Cordovan McGraw in a 10.5B, never worn. fresh coat of Saphir Reno. Will post pics, not sure the exact color but they are a lighter shade of brown. I will have all the details when I post up the FS thread.

    Thanks

    FYI, same shoes below, but not in color 8.

    Yep. You don't need the number for this shoe but in case I think this one is 9097. I really like the patina on old MacNeils, I wear mine all the time.

    PSA Chicago: Saw a pair of burgundy shell MacNeil's in 9.5 EEE at Nordstrom RACK on State for $249. Some shop wear but they're shells so not really an issue.
