    Is there any way to get rid of or reduce the squeaking on shoes?

    Hi,

    Just wondering with the sizing between Inca and Simpson last, is it generally advisable to go up half a size on the Simpson last (as compared to the Inca last for example)?

    Thanks

    Is it normal for the eyelets of a shoe to be splayed open so prominently when there isn't a foot inside it? Like a seasoned hooker down at the Dam.

    Does this happen with all of them or just the cordovan shoes?


    Where is the squeaking coming from?

    I do find the Saphir cordovan cream to be excellent!

    As do I. My Carmina shell shoes seemed to never be able to hold a shine. Until I started using the Saphir Cordovan Cream. I use neutral, do you use the colors?

    As orthodoxy goes, Neutral is a n no. Mac method, Nick Horween, Alden , Alden Carmel etc... Too much buildup of a neutral over the impregnable hide will never allow the patina to develop. A minority disagree, but a polish every 15 wears or so should be of a colored wax ( some say cream). Just sayin, 20 yrs of wearing a dozen pair and never used neutral. Bring it on, I won't argue
