    I am that guy. I don't know what the Mac method is exactly, but I have an athletic gait, walking with a more pronounced toe off, and the tips of my shoes take beating. I must place taps on all of my shoes, in order to prevent the damage that excessive toe drag brings to beautiful shoes....lol.

    ^^ I have also noticed that improper sizing can cause issues as well. If the shoe is a bit too long (which can easily happen with the barrie last) it can create excessive dragging and excessive damage to the shoe tip.

    HELP!! I've just had candle wax spilled on two pairs of Alden suede shoes. Does anybody know how I can remove it without damaging the suede?

    I've read this in multiple places:

    Excess can be scraped off with dull knife or spoon. Paper towels pressed on affected area and heat applied by blow dryer may lift wax into paper towel. Heat, however, tends to set dye in colored candles.

    Gorgeous! I've never been drawn to shell Indys but these have changed my mind. Thanks for sharing and enjoy wearing.

    Thanks (and I actually wear some of my boots in the summer believe it or not). Your mirror shine is the best I have ever seen. I think it tops the guy at LS!

    I now have a whole new appreciation for cap toe boots -- those are beautiful. Is the pull tab standard or was that a special make-up? Thanks!

    No, you are not alone. Far from it.

    But people still swear by the comfort of the last.
