    Actually impressed whenever anyone wears down double leather soles. Time for a resole!

    I think you'd be pleasantly surprised by how tough and resilient shell cordovan can be. Because the initial investment in shell shoes is steep I also was hesitant to wear the crap out of them. A quick wipe with a damp cloth and some vigorous brushing is all that's needed.

    put on dainite sole or topyoe then. Cordovan boots are my go to boots for rough situation, rain, snow and mud you name it. They still look great after 4 years of abuse

    I would go with the same size. The 325 is slightly narrower but the Lindricks run a tad bigger than the Marlows. Let me say though, that I only own a pair of Marlows, but have tried the Lindricks and several other C&J. Good luck!

    If the feet feel good who cares what the weathers like. Nice wingtips sir.

    They look great. The thermometer in my car reads 99 right now so I know what you mean about hot.

    Totally know what you mean. I'm wearing shell boots (AS Miller) today but it's always in the 60's where I work so it's not a problem.

    Thanks so much guys. I really don't do much to these things. I wipe and buff. Used Reno once at the beginning (a few months ago). Have some cordovan creme but have yet to use it. They came looking spectacular so I haven't had to do much to them. I really love these things. Going to wear them for my wedding in September :)

    Saphir Renovateur is neutral (doesn't contain pigment) - I used this once. I have the Saphir Cordovan Cream in Neutral but have yet to use it.


    These are marked Polo Ralph Lauren on the inside.
