Depends on the beer. Which beer was it?
Mariestads, my shoes deserves much much more.
They are Alfred Sargent Exclusive range so i don't think it is related to that. I imagine it's just where they've been polished only once or twice, hopefully once i've laid a few coats on this issue will dissipate
Finally did a shoeshine session on the brown/burgundy collection today.. turned out all right, even without a spit shine... (gave up trying to perfect that for now)
Left - Alfred Sargent Moore; Centre - Herring Raleigh II (Cheaney); Right - Herring Churchill (Cheaney)
Strangely the AS didn't shine up the same (quite dull), probably because it's the newest and never had a spit shine like the other two. That may have provided a good foundation..
AE's do not have shanks. Alden uses steel shanks.
That's a horrible thing to have happen to your shoes. I'm really sorry to hear about it. Hopefully, someone on here will be able to help you with it.
Let them dry
Oh, and stop spamming; sending the message once is enough.
I will take the shoes to a cobbler and see how it holds up, it's been wet for 48 hours... I fear they have begun to rot. Seems like one of my new classmates doesn't like me.
And I'm truly sorry for the spamming, I'm not familiar with the interface here and the delay that occurs when you press 'submit'. I'm not spamming on purpose! but hey, thanks for pointing that out
Don't worry, they won't rot; let them dry naturally and they will be fine.
Still, I don't get it: where were your shoes when someone spilled beer on them?!
I remember in my early 20's (not that long ago). I would go out to a bar get blackout drunk and when I woke up my shoes look like they went through a battlefield of foreign substances. I had a dedicated pair of "bar shoes".
Also, just because I know some of you would get a kick out of this, I had a feeling one night that I was going to end up getting lucky on a date so I brought a bag of clean underclothes and shoe trees with me. When I took off my shoes I took out the shoe trees and put them in my shoes and she almost keeled over from laughing so hard.
I have been in a relationship with that girl for the last 5 years. Just sayin.
Well, he's homofobic. So when he saw my collection of shoes he acted the only way he could think of. He poured a beer in one of them. He didn't just spill the beer. Even my shoetree smells beer
Don't invite him to any more of your parties.
Sounds like somebody needs a beating.
