    It's expensive, yeah, but it seems silly to me to worry about paying $14 more (or whatever it adjusts to with volume considerations) on a year's supply of a care product for my several hundred dollar shoes =P. But yeah, it's not like you're going to fuck your shoes up without Reno.

    I think this was one of the best deals going before Christmas. I absolutely love mine!

    That style boot but not in cordovan shell, in walnut calf leather. I sent emails to every outlet store with no luck on any size shell. But I think it was your picture a few weeks back that made me want those boots... I'll have to see how the calf is. I know it's not shell, but for $150, worth a shot. I can probably recoup my money if I don't like...

    I purchased them from AE back in mid Dec. They were $575 then. I think you can still get them but they are now priced at $675 on the AE site. The walnut color is beautiful in person and it's a little darker than what's pictured. These pics were taken on my iPhone and there are some other "real life" pic of these (and Strands in Walnut Cordovan) on the AE thread.

    Today is a nasty, wet day in Sydney town; perfect day to break out my new Ultimate Indys which have just arrived from Leather Soul. I had mine on order since July but it was worth the wait.
