Look at what you already have on the shoes. Church's tend to have flat waxed laces. Crockett & Jones tend to use round laces.Also do i go for flat or round wax laces ? any good stockists to buy them from in UK.
Gennerally dont use alcohol to clean shoes (especially cordovan) it desolves most of the dyes and leading to removal of a big percentage of the finish/dyes! it is common the collor difernceses (its the beauty of the cordovan ) as most of the times every shoe is from a diferent "hide"!View attachment 132372 I've got an older pair of cordovan shoes (Allen Edmonds MacNeil) that are in great shape. I thought that I should clean them up a little, using a damp cloth (water) at first. There were still some darker blotches of polish, so I went over them again using a little rubbing alcohol on the water-dampened cloth. That helped get rid of most dark blotches of polish. One shoe is darker than the other now. These are burgundy (color #8).
I had planned to use a little VSC, but I'm wondering if I should apply some of the Allen Edmonds cordovan cream (in burgundy) first, to help even out the color. Any suggestions?
