    Love the color on these! No signs of the olive hue like I've seen in other pictures. How old are they?

    Here's one source I found for Uncle Mac's Method for shell cordovan care.

    Essentially:
    1. Wipe with barely damp cloth.
    2. Brush vigorously with horse hair brush.
    3. Buff with smooth cloth.
    4. After a minimum of about 15 wearings, apply very small amounts of wax/cordovan creme/reno/... (depends on who you ask).

    Of course use trees and a shoe horn as with any dress shoe.

    Well I just wanted to add my new captoes to those posting new shoes. Also, I was helped by Kathy in at the Alden store in D.C. on these. Thanks, Kathy. These may become my favorites.

    DS: Thank you!

    Actually in some recent pics I have taken of these, the olive comes though. Guess not in this shot however.
    These are 23 months old, with limited wear.
