    None. My point is, they're pretty cheap to begin with.

    A BMW is like 50k, thats cheap enough, do you really need a sale to buy one?
    -Says any millionaire

    A Jet is like 50 million,thats cheap enough, do you really need to think about this purchase?
    -Says any billionaire

    Well, Sno-Seal won't darken the shoe very much and Obenaufs LP will, so... [​IMG]

    Will the darkness of the Obenaufs lessen with wear as they do NWT?

    It's hard to say for sure.

    Mine did. When I first applied Obenaufs, the almost turned black. Now they're about the same color they were when they were new.

    Splash through puddles.
    Uh... Wait for any dirt/water splashes to dry completely and brush the suede lightly with a suede brush (or be careful with a clean polishing brush of some sort). Personally, I use a nail brush really lightly and it works fine. Don't brush too hard though, or you'll wear the suede out really quickly. If there's a really stubborn bit of dirt or whatever, use a damp cloth on the area, wait for it to dry and repeat what I said above. It's all fair and good just washing them with water, but once they dry they'll be marked - that's what the brush is for. You'll get the idea once you start scrubbing them.

    Thanks a lot Terry, I will try that.

    Forgive me if this was posted, but Endless.com has a pretty good selection of CDBs for 66 bucks.

    Good call. Plus, it's free 2-day shipping and free returns. Thanks for the heads-up! - Keith

    Don't forget 30% bing cash back...

    that being said, I want beeswax and they are sold out...how long does endless usually take to restock? Can I order in a different size and then use free return shipping to exchange for my size when it is back in stock (not like beeswax is getting discontinued).

    Would I be able to buy it from endless and then exchange them for the right size at a chicago store (say I lost the receipt)?

    I'm not sure this price is going to last; seems like a sale price. What size are you looking for? - Keith

    I think 10.5 but maybe 10...I was thinking about just ordering the in-stock 11.5 and then hoping that they get the other size in stock during the return/exchange time limit (or exchange the new-in-box shoes to a brick and mortar store under the guise of not having my receipt) Kind of a hassle but I'd deal with it to get a pair for $46 EDIT: Looks like their exchange policy is essentially "return it and order a different one" so while they will honor the price, the bing cashback might go away. Anyone have any luck ordering from one place and exchanging at another (its the exact same product...not like you are screwing them out of anything)
