    How often do you apply conditioner to your soles? Also, is there any benefit in terms of comfort; do the soles feel "softer" if they are well conditioned?

    nothing to do with comfort. The purpose is to preserve the lifespan of the sole.

    can anyone confirm or refute this?

    I've never had any issues putting down a deposit with them to pre-order their shoes. I call my salesperson at LSW, not sure if LSBH have a different policy

    Their Hawaiian tankers (NST boots) in particular have been very popular and most sizes filled up pre-order many months back, but I think most of their others are still open

    Nice shoes. Enjoy wearing.


    I have only seen them when I purchased. I do enjoy them a lot. They are easily the shoes that garner the most positive attention and compliments. Even from complete strangers. :nodding:

    Great shoe. I have no problem wearing the darker shell colors in summer. These look so versatile and fun.

    Whiskey color varies as do the photo skills and photo processing skills of the various venders. Whiskey shell also varies in color greatly due to lighting and surrounding colors. As it ages it darkens a little as well. I would not make a decision on which picture looks best.

    Good looking out. Thanks!

    Out of curiosity, what size? I need to know if I should be banging my head against a wall.

    Also, does anyone know what US size an Italian 42 converts to? There seem to be conflicting answers based on my search results.
