    Thanks to Tom, I just got these yesterday with only a 2 day wait. I got lucky that he pays attention to our posts and happened to see my post when checking stock at Alden. Thanks for the great service and the shoe trees.

    +1, glad to see the calf. please post a pic once the shoe develops some sort of patina. Mr. k, what color polish do you intend to use?

    Not sure yet on the polish,but I am leaning towards a darker brown to help add some patina and dimension to the leather.

    good call. I think some saphir high polish in "mahogany" would look great. I tried it on a pair of C&J burnished calf boots and the results are incredible. It gave the boot a lot more character before even a single wear.

    have your tried scraping it off with the back of your finger nail? I would recommend brushing the hell out of it. Aaaaargh :crazy:
