    They are beautimous!

    I think I would have a hard time wearing them they are so perfect.

    Please explain the tomcat method, sir.

    As it appears in the photo that you are serving them for lunch may I presume your method tenderizes as it polishes? :rimshot: :bigstar:

    Ha ha you would need the Texas sun for tenderizing ..its the key :)

    ---out in the sun for 30 to 45 mins
    --- light brushing(never vigourous, rapid or anything else)
    ---damp cloth dipped in Kiwi wax (AE doesnt work well for some reason) rubbed lightly all over
    --- light buffing with brush
    --- buff with soft cloth
    --- repeat
    --- final buffing horizontally on the toes and vamp with silk cloth

    results guaranteed :nodding::
    I'll pm you my patent charges.:D

    They look great! Is that Bordeaux shell? The two photos look very different in color.

    Brand of the heel maker - it is written Gaucho Superior.
    Thought it might be a bit more comfortable and durable.
