    Does the shoe on the left look dry? I applied reno, one coat of creme and one coat of wax. The shoe on the right was worn, the shoe on the left wasn't-long story (fractured bone).

    SORRY, you are correct fritzl

    Facing the screen, the shoe on the right was worn, it is also my left (foot) shoe. Does it look dry? They both had the same treatment, just that I was only able to wear the left shoe.

    Doesn't look like they'll age gracefully.

    1) Do you guys treat the bottoms of your leather-soled shoes?


    yes i do. i use shoe cream. the bottoms can crack prematurely too when they are extremely dry, it happened to my shoes before

    It's always nice when your Edward Greens are mistaken for Loakes!

    I disagree. I think they will age beautifully and develop a great patina. Do you have any reason for saying it won't age well?
