    Thanks for the info! Leaning heavily towards the Coniston... with maybe a Skye after that someday lol.




    Do all of you guys use C&J's shoe trees? Are there any alternatives that are suitable/recommended? $80-$100 for a shoe tree is new for me haha.

    I personally don't spring for most manufacturer's trees as they're too expensive. My favorite is the Woodlore twin tube Epic. The AE/Woodlore full or split-toe trees are also good. I did splurge on one pair of C&J trees to go with a recent MTO but that will be a one-time affair.

    What color of polish cream/wax are you using on C&J chesnut shoes? Medium brown or neutral?

    I have heard a combination of Saphir Mahogany and Hermes Red work well, or to just use neutral.

    hey guys,

    I'm sure this question has been asked before, but i'm not sure where in the thread I could find it.

    Just got my first pair of Terburys:

    1. Will regular woodlore shoes trees suffice? Or will these work with the last?

    2. What do you use to treat the boots? Do you apply a layer of protector before applying saphir products?

    3. I have saphir black shoe cream, saphir polish and saphir wax. Should I use all 3 for the boots?

    I typically alternate between these two.

    I think 72 is a distinct last that doesn't "correspond" to another C&J last as such.

    Hmm interesting. Do you happen to know if it's narrow or wide or anything?

    Not having any luck finding the Skye for sale from any of the usual UK online retailers. Is the Skye one of those boots you have to order from C&J directly? Anyone know how much it'll cost?

    Both Skye calf and shell versions are indeed C&J shops and C&J mail order only.

    I think the calf is around 425GBP inc. VAT and 600GBP inc. VAT for the shell. There'll be P&P ontop of that if you get them by mail order.

    You should contact them via their website to check on availability of your size.

    That is correct. 500GBP (cordovan) if you are in the US and 40GBP shipping. 5GBP shipping for each aditional pair.

    Sorry, what is P&P? And if I order from their UK store, they'll deduct the VAT, making it cheaper than ordering from their USA store, right?
