    Got an awesome deal today at the Sak's consolidation sale in Chicago. EG Walpoles (Medallion cap monk) in Antique Chestnut - under $400 incl. tax. They still have a few pair of burgundy Weston loafers for a steal, but I can't find a size that actually fits me [​IMG]

    Are these brand new? If so, why are they so much creased?

    You can tell by the wear on the sole near the toe that he's worn them.

    Or someone else...

    Correct... a preowned (if you can even call them that..just 5/6x worn) gem, perfectly fit for me!

    Tarrago (a Spanish brand) makes cream polish in a ridiculous array of colors. Maybe combine that with a neutral wax coat?

    Yep, http://www.tarrago.us/.

    And believe it or not, I actually once possessed a thing of the fuchsia shoe cream, which I had gotten for a (female) friend. [​IMG]

    That would be my best guess; alternating between that an neutral. I think even if Saphir's forest is a little darker it would end up looking pretty nice.
