    Spending more money always makes me feel better. Leatherback Swims in burgundy were out of stock. There's always bright orange just to "freshen it up" a little.

    Thank you, sir. Purchased them from Adam @ AoC in November & haven't worn them much, yet. :)

    Great looking captoe. Thinking I'll have to get some #8s myself.

    Almost any product will work. I prefer Saphir Renovateur myself, used intermittently, but the biggest care issue I address is brushing. A quick once over when putting them on, and 2-4 minutes a shoe when I take them off. Prevents anything really drastic from happening to them, can take out decent scratches, and keeps the leather supple.

    I recently bought a bottle of Lexol Neetsfoot Oil, (http://www.amazon.com/Lexol-NF-Leather-Dressing-16-oz/dp/B002UQIS8S/ref=pd_sim_sbs_auto_30) which claims to be non darkening. I havent worked up the courage to use it. I do brush regularly and that seems to have sufficiently taken care of random scuffs and kept the leather looking fresh.

    Santa's been to my office! Or at least the UPS guy has. But I like to call him "Santa" when he drops off boxes like this:

    Thanks for the tips, now I need to buy a brush! I was looking at the Alden one at The Shoe Mart but I can't seem to add one to my cart for some reason or another.

    within the past 7 days there was a big discussion on brushes and where to get a good price on a good brush.

    ^^ Agreed, there are more economical options than the Alden branded brushes ^^
