    Congratulations - they're a fantastic pair of boots. Wear them well and enjoy them!

    These are mine.

    Gerry...your pics helped reinforce my purchase and Namor, your pics of your Galways pushed me over the edge to get those this week, too.

    Question -

    Im too busy/lazy to polish my shell the proper way. Do you know if any shoeshine stands, etc. know how to properly polish shell? Has anyone ever taken your shell to someone else to shine?

    Spoo, have you checked with B. Nelson? I'm sure if you specified they were shell they would know what to do with it.

    They do a great job. They shined up my Lindricks at SF10 and I couldn't be happier. Keep it mind it's about $15-20.

    I'm flying out JFK today via jet blue. I'll try to get my BB peal boots shined

    Odd, prices at JFK are 30-50% cheaper than SF and the shoe shine guy confirmed this.

    JFK:
    Bulletproof shine is $12
    Glass is $10
    Basic is $10

    The best shine I've ever received was on the streets in Peru for $1.

    Neck breaking shine. [​IMG] [​IMG] my only critique is that too much paste wax was used. will need to brush it all off afterwards.

    How often are people using reno on their shoes. Feel like my wingtips are drying out super fast despite maybe 1 wear every 10 days?

    Yeah I know, it's crazy how dry they get. Don't mind doing it but it's becoming a hassle
