    Liquor? I hope you used something good. :D

    I've never seen such a thing on shoes before.

    Does your air conditioning not work well? It seems that it would keep the air so dry that mold wouldn't grow.

    luk-cha meant alcohol for desinfection and getting rid of spots. as we already mentioned. the situation looks worse than it really is.

    I'm on a roll, finally figured out how to upload pics. Here is the Rothchild in Vintage Chestnut on the DG70, photos don't do justice to the color of the shoes. Taken at Starbucks after I got them back from my shoe guy.

    I find that I wear the heels of my shoe very quickly, I asked for heel protectors and that is what they put on. I would prefer not to continually repair/replace the heel. Any alternatives?

    Okay, how is it done incorrectly? Is it positioned incorrectly? He was recommended to me by a SA in a high end shoe department in the Yorkville area. I balked at top taps and a Topy, settling for the heel protector since I am very hard on the heels of my shoes.
