    Grendel, you're right. I use it more for actual cleaning than conditioning. Andro, Obenauf's will condition as well but it's a wax and will be perfect for beeswax. It's actually really cool stuff that firefighters use to condition/protect their leather goods in harsh conditions.

    Buy here: http://www.amazon.com/Obenaufs-LP-Boot-Preservative/dp/B0002X520S

    Use: Clean shoes with some water just like normal shoes & let dry completely. Apply wax (I actually just use my fingers), if wax is too dry, you can hold a hair dryer over the container for a few seconds to get the wax useable. Wipe away excess and let dry for a few hours before applying another coat as needed. Let shoes dry thoroughly outside away from the sun for a few days before use.

    You know damn well she stopped at my house today too....with a pair of somewhat elusive Hanover PTBs in Black.

    My wife and I were sitting around talking when I mentioned two pairs of Italian-made POLO by Ralph Lauren women's loafers in 7 1/2 B that I found earlier this week which were then promptly removed from my possession and conscripted for possible use with "cute summer outfits." [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ^^^ I haven't conditioned or polished them up for her yet, but you get the idea.

    Do any of you guys get raided by your wives or girlfriends (or both [​IMG])?

    Yes, indeed! but technically she only ever raids the money I make on the stuff I flip.

    Luciano Barbera Charcoal Flannels (36x34, pleated and cuffed)
    [​IMG]

    Brooks Brothers Belt (34) and 2 Suspenders - Pelican (white) Trafalgar (playing cards - no idea if these are limited edition, should it say that somewhere on them?)
    [​IMG]

    :slayer: Xenos never disappoints.


    I'll sometimes treat myself to a nice lunch or dinner if I strike out at several places. A consolation prize.


    I really enjoy finding things my wife will like. I've found quite a few pairs of shoes for her (Ferragamos, Bean Boots, AE penny loafers, made in USA white bucks), sometimes in small men's sizes. All scarves I find go to her, including the recent Hermes.
