Crat, you always have the best backdrops for shoe pictures!!!
That submerged shot is just crazy! Nobody could ever accuse you of babying your shoes.
Those are some of the best shoe pictures ever!
Crat, I had noticed your picture of those shoes standing in a pool before and meant to ask you about it. Is there some story behind that, or were you just testing the impact of submerging nice shoes and seeing how they recover? How did they recover? They certainly look great, and I love the glassy wax over the patina on the leather of the toes. It gives a real 3-D effect to the finish!
Came home some sunny friday afternoon to find my housemates chillin' in/around the garden pool. Bbq fired up, cold beers in a bucket of ice and loud beatz playing.
They dared me to jump in.
I too feel your pain. My wife gets jealous of the attention I pay towards mine.
Start taking care of hers while you're at it...works for me.
Yup, just figured that one out the other day when I started "winter proofing" all her boots and cleaning them for her. I ate good that night.
You did all that for her and had to work even more?
What can I say, I'm a giver.
Post-Saturday EPL shine. I'm always surprised how much of a difference a few wears makes after buffing the Renovateur. I also cream polish the vamp and sides(?) I use black wax for the toes and rears. Unfortunately this photo is back lit but you get the idea.
I've learned a lot from this thread about brining out the shine using wax and I would say one piece of advice I have is that you don't need to use very much pressure at all at any phase when using the wax.
Well I spent some time doing the spit shine method with light coats of neutral polish on the caps. I'm getting there.
