@OrlandoMo @ArchibaldRoh

What is the current situation of the November batch? Is is likely to arrive this year or is it going to be delayed?
The SF-01 v2? 2 week delay currently, so looking at first week of Dec... We sent two emails out to everyone who ordered one i think a week or so ago and one about 4 weeks ago.

ah if they are handling it, im sure it is ok... Learning from past experiences I think best to liase any questions directly with them as historically I tend to make their lives a lot more difficult when I get involved.

Hi guys. My GFA dropped a drink on her sand color SF01. Has anyone have experience removing stains from them? I believe they are supossed to be veg tanned crust, so very delicate leather.

A product called renovateur cleans this rather well. It's expensive but works very well. I'd remove laces and go to town on them.

If you cant find the product locally, a saddle soap or other leather cleaner will likely do the trick. But be careful as you just dont know how it will interact with the leather. I had Coke spill on my Roos and it took around 3 rounds of reno to get it out.

Do yourself a favor and oil these well when you're done. VERY POROUS.

Thx for your replay, but Renovateur is not recommended for crust. It has too much solvents and can damage the finish.
I also have saddle soap but I’m afraid it could alter the color darkening it.
as for oil, it would definitely darken the leather.

Stand corrected. Maybe Saphir lotion then? Less oily etc.
