    Yeah, sorry to throw that stink bomb out there. But they were so notably and uniquely ugly that I just couldn't resist!

    I guess I am a 1%er then because I actually like these shoes. What am I missing? I am not a big fan of scotch grain or leather that has a scotch grain type of appearance, but the design of the shoe itself, wing-tip balmoral, seems fine to me? Those are great project shoes!

    You're talking about a different pair of shoes. See the link on the previous page

    dumb question -- I was going to buy some Saphir from that UK seller that everyone jumped on a couple weeks ago (Spoo originally pointed it out). What's the difference between these two Saphir cream products?
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/SAPHIR-CREAM-50G-RICH-WAXED-CREAM-MANY-COLOURS-/260892571501
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/SAPHIR-MEDA...OVATING-CREAM-POLISH-11-COLOURS-/260880331443

    I already own the latter product in one color, and I'm now interested in getting a few more colors... but I'm not sure which cream to get. Advice?

    Actually, I quoted the wrong person. Namor, who bought the shoes, said about them: "seller sent the shoes fedex overnight at no additional charge. shoes are kinda hideous but the leather looks unique"

    I don't find them hideous at all.

    Oh, yeah, I see now. I agree with you, I see nothing hideous about those.
