Or just leave them alone.
yes, yes. CREPE soles.
How does one take care of crepe soles?
The first thing I would do is get them resoled with leather.
Big fan of crepe, super comfy but it wears out like a bitch...not good longevity.
At the Zoo, we sometimes enjoy wearing casual, suede shoes with gum/crepe soles.
Leather soles are reserved for meeting important people and such.
ice. freezes/hardens the gum and easy to scrap off using coins.
what do you mean?
don't buy them. crepe = cr.pola.
I was thinking this, but wasn't going to say it.
I need some new heels on some Crockett Jones suede loafers. I would like to keep the brown dove tail detail. I didn't like how my local guy did the last pair. Does anyone have a recomendation for someone to do it through the mail? B Nelson? Thanks
Nick is currently working on a pair of my shoes. I don't know of anyone else by mail that I could recommend.
Have a question, but can horse hair daubers be used with creme/cream polish? Or rather, should they be used?
I've used horse hair daubers with wax with good results, but creme/cream polishes seem to get rather messy and it never "distributes" the polish quite well. usually, I have to go back with a soft clothe and a lil water and "rub" it in better before brushing. Wondering if anyone else has had similiar issues. (both the dauber and creme was from AE)
Don't use them. They waste a lot of polish and apply too much. Just use an old t shirt and your finger.
Excellent deduction. It looks exactly like my 8 yr old son's shoes & boots.
So, did I understand this right -- you put fat/oil on the outsole to nourish it? If so, how often?
