    The Kudu is more heavily oiled. I find it to be softer and more supple than standard CXL.

    If I could have only one last, it would probably be the Plaza. It is easily my favorite last for shell boots. :nodding:

    Hello,

    I just purchased my first pair of Aldens (http://www.unionmadegoods.com/Alden_Coleman_Chukka_in_Cognac_Soft_Calf_14674_7982.html) along with the cedar shoe trees.

    How does one care for Aldens to preserve their look and make sure their quality lasts? I'm not very familiar with shoe care. This is my first pair of shoes that I plan on caring for regularly. What type of paste and brush do I purchase for this pair of shoes and what is the process of applying the paste and brush to care for them?

    I appreciate the help!

    These are on the Barrie, correct? Is there a pre-order coming up soon? I don't think Epaulet typically carries 6.5D...

    You might try Yenni at JGilbert. I know they are doing some six eyelet chukkas this year.
