Thanks for the response.
Well I never used mac method on ly CJ and ronrider shell. It's always Reno, cream and occasionally wax for me
How do I know when I need a resole? I've had my shoes over a year, but only wear once or twice a week, so I'm not sure if they need it or not (they are single leather soles), what are the signs that indicate a resoling is required?
bassed on what you said 99% you dont need a resole!!(unless you walk 10 miles in rain in every wear)!!
holes where you can see the insole, round soft spots at the center of the front part of the sole(where it most toutches the ground, toe part of the sole warn down!! if it is possible give a picture!!
I work as a cobbler and like benhour said watch out for soft spots and holes. But you especially need to make sure no part of the sole is so worn down it might affect the welt. If you start to wear the welt it's going to add a lot of £ to fix. Where i work if the welt needs to be replaced it adds another £40 to your bill
Looks like I may need to buy a kit. Any suggestions under $60?
Local cobblers. One brush, one kiwi wax in color of your choice, one liter of Lexol conditioner. Shouldn't cost you more than $30. Use your own old t-shirts or undershirts for buffing cloth.
How should one care for peccary? Same as calf?
Some general info on collonil brand! Diamant series production is now stopped and the product ll be available as long as the stock of the warehouse and resellers holds! Diamant series is now fully substitute from 1909 line!
Crat good to have you back!
I have so many different shades of leather shoes though. Walnut, burgundy, bordeaux, black....
You can get away with burgundy, dark, middle and light brown, one black, so 5 polish.
Just use navy for everything.
neutral, mid brown, and black.
Oeeh, I don't like neutral but black and mid brown should be fine. Burgundy and dark brown optional.
