I clean dirt with a damp cloth, or baby wipes, or if it really bad, saddle soap and a soft brush.For anyone with Whites made in brown dress.... what do you like to clean and condition yours with? I’ve worn mine in some inclement weather recently and noticed they are picking up some smudges and water spots. I really don’t want them to darken at all, I like the sort of “Hershey’s chocolate bar” brown they came in. They also have the contrasting khaki stitching. I currently have Huberds shoe grease ( used for my work boots), which I know will darken them. But I also have Bick 4 and VSC. I’m thinking Bick 4 should achieve what I’m looking for, but I wanted to check with others.
2nd on this... My experience with dress specifically is a little goes quite a ways... I suspect it doesnt absorb to the same level as the work leathers due to the smooth finish. Mine which are set up similarly to yours, have seen one application of Venetian Shoe Cream and I was happy with it. The dress leathers are new to me so will dial in in a bit more over time.I clean dirt with a damp cloth, or baby wipes, or if it really bad, saddle soap and a soft brush.
Since you have contrast stitching, colored creams or polishes are right out...
For reconditioning I like Saphir MDO Renovateur, or VSC as a close second choice... neither will darken the already dark leather very much. In either case, less is more... do not slather it on... once you brush it you will get a nice glow.
For more shine, I use the Saphir Crème in Natural everywhere but the heels and toes, and Saphir natural polish on the toes and heels.
I have little to no experience with Bick 4... in any case, you are not trying to soak or saturate the leather... Brown Dress does not need that... light application of Saphir or VSC will do.
I have looked at at least a thousand pairs of LTTs (online from afar) and including mine, @PACostag’s makes a grand total of 4 pairs I have noticed that line. I doubt it’s that common.I have LTT without that issue (and another on order).
Neither of my 2 show any hint of it... I cant feel any lump. (Olive wax flesh and red dog)
You really had me believing you until I read “wedge sole” lol.Kyle confirmed today that we are go for a new Styleforum collaboration. It should be available to order on the website within the next month or two.
It will be a Moc Toe Boot
Gold Eyelets, top speed hook
38 Swing toe, MP heel
The CXL will receive a matte topcoat so it doesn't get shiny at all.
The model will be Called the Most Legal of Eagles. It will be a boot designed for those who live the mountain life, but may find themselves stepping into the courtroom at any time.
