Member CandJONLINE I believe, try a PM...
How often do you have to re-apply the Sno-Seal? I was planning on using it for a pair of boots this winter.
All depends on how often the boots are exposed to the elements, mate.
Most of my boots and shoes are designed for walking and they all tend to get waxed a couple of times a year with similar products, more if they need it.
Monitoring my wife to ensure she's following the Mac method for breaking in her Chelsea boots. Most expensive footwear she's ever bought. I think I've created a monster...
There is a big possibility that we could have changed supplier in that time, although it would only have been out of necessity, following a reduction in quality of the previous leather or lack of availability etc.
All the best,

BootSpell, how did you get your wife into premium footwear? My GF wears 3yr old run over Bjorn walkers and insists that she's just fine.
Picked up these Tetburys today in the Crockett and Jones flagship store in London. Very happy with them and the service!
Be, why would you want your GF to be into premium footwear??? That could be distrastrous for her budget (maybe yours, too?)! Seriously, my wife usually looks for sales and buys nice enough looking shoes/boots but cheap ones. They inevitably disintegrate in a year or two. I'm not sure she's still "into" premium footwear but I'm still kinda worried.
In this case, she was waiting for me in the C&J store on Jermyn St while I was trying on boots and we were there for probably a couple of hours. She kept watching the C&J sales girls walking by and finally asked about the shoes/boots they were wearing. That was the end of that. She spent more than I did that day.
I have a feeling it was just because we were on vacation and she felt less reluctant to spend money. We'll have to see going forward. Why don't you try buying your GF a nice pair that you think she'd look good in?
Those look great! Hadn't seen that makeup before. Where did you get them?
BTW, welcome to SF.
I'm going to probably be wearing them once a week. I don't plan on hiking in them or anything rugged, just commuting to and fro from work. They'll experience rain/snow/ice for sure. Do you think re-applying every 3 to 4 months should be sufficient?
Thanks. It's a bespoke version for a retailer in Stockholm, Sweden, called Grafford.
Do any of you order C&J off the internet? Seems like Barney's is the only online retailer here in the States. Any recommended UK ones? May end up being cheaper actually if they subtract the VAT.
Try Bodileys, Edwards of Manchester, and Pediwear. I hear good things, albeit, sometimes difficult to source. If all fails, try contacting a C&J store directly...
If you search, there was a recent discussion on other online retailers in the US. One is Ben Silver. I think you are right, though --- UK may end up being cheaper.
