Summed up well there!

All I’d add is that bookbinder is probably a better wet weather option than cordovan and also a lot lower maintenance.

Bookbinder however will not get better with age and in some cases (not always) can crease quite badly.
Ahhhhhhh, water resistance, missed that part. Thanks for pointing that out :)

Yes I find I can’t wear my cordovan whenever I want as I don’t want to get them really wet.

I’m sure it is plenty water resistant but the spotting takes a bit of work to remove.
Go over them with a damp cloth and they become one big water spot (at least until the next time it rains

Does that method discolour them at all? the spots I get are a dull colour. This is probably the oils coming to he surface or something.

I just brushed them thoroughly several times over a few days and they've more or less disappeared. Don't want to have to do that regularly though.

It’s been a while since I wore these. Red Bourtons with commando sole. When I first got them the color was too tomato-y for my taste but after 10 years of polishing with a darker oxblood they’ve patina’d into a deeper red that I prefer.

You’ve had those for 10 years? You kept them sealed in a laboratory? Ha. Jokes aside, they are looking good :)

thanks, i have way too many shoes, so i'll typically wear a pair that i've gravitated to for a couple weeks, then might not ever wear them again til the following year.

Hi

I hope you guys will find the following extract from this weeks newsletter of interest.

Pediwear Trickers
This season's Tricker's styles from Pediwear are a tale of two types of leather: deerskin and museum calf. For those with a taste for the depth and marble effect of museum calf we have a delightful burgundy Chelsea boot, a split toe styled Derby and a double monk shoe.

Following the success of the suede Polo chukka boot we are now offering an exclusive combination of soft dark brown deerskin in this popular chukka style (last W2298).
Bowood in Deerskin
The Bowood style will be known to many Tricker's fans - and here we have it in dark brown deerskin and fully lined by soft, bare sheepskin.

as ever, any questions David or myself are happy to answer.

Regards

Mike

Yes it is quite special isn't it! Glad you like.
Have you ever inquired about perhaps doing some of the unique leathers from CF Stead. There’s so many from CF Stead like the Deerskin you are using now. I can only speak for myself but I’d really like to see more unique leathers :)

That's my dream combination, red upper plus natural welt and commando sole - lovely
