    pls don't topy, though

    +1. I'm definitely not in the Topy camp...

    Now the shoes have aired a bit they don't smell so "old bookshop"...

    I have been using the CREME UNIVERSELLE for a long time. It's a leather cleaner and conditioner. Good stuff. More economical than the RENOVATEUR.

    When you watch the video from JM Weston' website about a gentleman's demonstrating shoe polishing, you can see he was also using that cream to clean/condition the shoes.


    I went to the JM Weston web site and watched the video. A little more than half way through it says "Shoes should be polished at least once-a-week". I was surprised by this. Is this common practice for most people? Have I been abusing my shoes?

    love the boots, the southwold not so much...

    Why, if I may - does the heel counter on the Southwold look wrong?

    Thanks...the boots are extremely comfortable. I rethinking the Southwold but I know I would like to buy a spring/summer shoe in whiskey. I like to wear linen, seersucker and white and light blue jeans in the summer so I would like something I can dress up or down. Everyone...what's your thoughts on navy suede for summer?
