    11E. I've been eyeing them for a while and they were relisted two or three times at $399. Not the best deal, but with a jar of wax and shoe trees it was good enough to kop.

    Are those Blue LWB CXLs? Those are brilliant kicks. I love the brass eyelets. Very nice Filson 257 there as well!

    If I could get a pair of cigar gunboats that looked like these for $399, I would personally walk the cash to the seller. These are a great deal. As for cleaning them, you've got a lot of good advice from folks who know far more than I but I would point out that the Mac method involves a deer bone. If you don't have one, just use a lot of elbow grease, and then use some more. Wipe down with a damp cloth first, do a lot of brushing and at this point, I would recommend a little renovator. Then brush some more. Then brush some more. Then.........
