Caring for shark ? (AE Tulane) I've read some past posts, mention of Bicks 4 and VSC. I have these and have Saphir neutral cream and Renovateur. But no 'exotic' product. These, in bad light, have only had a wipe down and a Bick 4 round. Suggestions? Thank you.

Anyone know the year on these? I can't find them in the catalogs so far.

Those are awesome saddles. I’ve used Saphir reptan on my 🦈 and 🐊 with good results. It hydrates and leaves a nice shine. Bickmore also makes an exotic conditioner. It gets good amazon reviews.

Should I put any renomat on them since I don't know what has been on them before ?

You could. I don’t think it would hurt. Shark is hearty.

Here are the shell Florsheim Imperials after resting since Tuesday. The color remains about the same. Now that they've sat for a while, I wonder if I over conditioned. The treated shoe has a sort of tacky-slick feel and fingerprints easily. Perhaps that is bloom that needs to be brushed back in.

The ancient and mysterious black pebble grain LWBs.

Medieval implements and various emollients got them from 13 C to 13 D, now they fit great.

V-cleats at the edge; I'm thinking 1970's, possibly 1960's.

Anybody know these codes? Probably not Florsheim but if anyone has an opinion, LMK.

Rare trip out of the house tonight. Socially distanced wine and cheese with friends. Opted for the Keith Highlander shell LWBs.

Cheese, pate, salami, antipasti...

Side-by-side tasting of Briceland’s ’15 and ‘16 Pinot from Ronda’s Vineyard. Brilliant stuff.

Distanced Thanksgiving Number 2. Decided to go with vintage Nunn Bush walnut wingtips.
