    Apply a light coat of wax, rub in swirls medium pressure, add saliva, keep rubbing, repeat several times. When shine starts to pop, lighten the pressure and keep rubbing. Finish with a buffing cloth. The Lobbs shine up very quickly, others require more work. Justin the shoe snob has a good tutorial on You Tube. Patience is a requirement.

    Having trouble finding some info on a JL model. Do you guys know the last the Barrow boot is made on and its fit characteristics? With a google search and checking JL website I can't find much on the boot. Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I love them and hope that I will eventually be able to get a pair in this style in my size. My guess is that bespoke would be my only option unless someone knows if EG can make this style on the 202 last, which is the only one that they can make me shoes in my size on.
