How are you using the Bootblack cleaning water?
And how much of it do you use each time?
Assuming you meant "polish water"
I dont use it when I am applying wax, but tap the cloth with it (just very little of it) when I am pushing the wax. I think in general you should apply as little as possible.

What did you beat to that post by like 30 seconds or so?

Soooo the EQUO last...thoughts?

Obviously, I don't own any shoes on that last, but from the pictures, it looks beautiful to me. The shape that goes into that toe really separates the men from the boys.

Does anyone have experience with Carmina Shell Cordovan, C&J Shel Cordovan, Enzo Bonafe Shell cordovan and St. Crispin's Shell cordovan?

How do they compare?

I know that most brands like Allen Edmonds Alden, Carmina C&J, Enzo Bonafe, and St.C all use Horween shell, but they are all different when the product is finished.

I like Enzo the best in shell, but I like the St.C last better.

I wonder if @DL120 ever checks these forums anymore. Not sure if he's got CJ, but know he has all of the others.

I've got all besides StC and seems all the same to me to be honest. Besides the different color offerings I think it really just comes down to preference of style/construction and not the actual material itself.

Yes I’ve got it all except CJ. And yeah I haven’t been on here for months or close to a year.
