    Some hadn't been worn in over three years, even new ones. I've also relegated shell to casual wear which means even fewer opportunities to wear them. They've gone to good homes, and I still have an ample supply left for myself. [​IMG]

    I've eliminated many pairs as well,I have seasonal shoes that don't get worn for months but I make sure that I wear them a few times a year. Oh yeah,and I don't think more than 40 pairs is good.

    Agreed, and I'd gone beyond that. Also, my really good calf dress shoes were feeling neglected, so it was time to start wearing them.

    Great,not that I need any shoes but If there are any cordovans you want to get rid of,please let me know. At this point,I have room for a few pairs of Vass left in my closet.

    I have a cordovan cream from Allen Edmonds that I used a few times but it doesn't do it for me,the leather gets dull afterwards. Where can I buy some cordovan paste wax? Any links?

    I know of a couple of brands where a half size down is necessary, but not down a whole size. [​IMG]
