j mentioned in another thread that the current CT chelseas (and chukkas, which I had been looking at) have been changed and no longer come in smooth, polishable leather, and that the waxy brown leather named on the page is more like a beeswax finished leather. What happened to the polishable leather ones? Do any of you have any experience with these? I'm curious what they actually look like, what the quality is like, how one is supposed to care for them, whether or not I should still be thinking about those chukkas, etc. Admittedly, I'd been holding off because I don't want leather soles, and I don't know of any good places that could put some good rubber soles on (locally, anyway; I did find some resoling places online, though I have no idea about the quality of their work). Links for reference.
