    Hi

    Can anyone tell me what the cause of this is on the soles of my boots? Lacking maintenance and needing shoe cream or what? They've been my go-to boots for nights out so they've been treated pretty roughly and it'd be nice to know how I get to cleaning/conditioning them the best.

    Those are just beat up sole edges. It's normal (especially if you kick a lot in mosh pits). You can just use any leather conditioner on them and if you want to darken them back to their original color, you can buy edge dressing at your local shoe repair shop and apply it all around. A small bottle will last you a lifetime

    You should also condition the uppers of those boots - that toe area looks scratched and dry

    Great, just wanted to be sure before I did any conditioning/cleaning.

    I use sneakers for mosh pits, though [​IMG]

    does anyone have a way to batch-convert cm to inches when you're looking at measurements? my technique of opening new tabs in chrome, each with "75 cm in inches" or whatever, is ok but monotonous. I'd love if I could paste the whole measurements section in, and something took every number it found in my pasted stuff and converted it to inches. or a browser plugin that lets me select numbers and convert or something.

    Usually you just type "xcm to inches" in the address bar and it automatically converts it for you, you don't have to hit enter/navigate out of the page. At least that's how Chrome does it.

    open up a spreadsheet in Google Sheets and do it there? easiest way to do it in bulk in-browser I guess.

    Is there anywhere else to find current season Lucio Vanotti outside of the corner? I know there's a few smaller eu boutiques but it's pretty hard to find. Are there any other major retailers?

    If you're only talking about clothing I'd just divide by 2.5 in your head - the odd 0.04 isn't worth worrying about for clothing measurements when you take into account measuring accuracy and sample variation and dividing by 2.5 is a doddle compared to 2.54...
