    Could someone please advise where I can get replacement waxed leather laces for my 1000 milesin rust color? I remember reading somewhere that you have to mail in for them or something? If this is still the case does anyone have ther address?

    Damn - $18.00 for laces?! I seem to remember that mail-in option was something like ~$5.00. Was I imagining that?

    Thanks for the link, by the way.

    Just reach out to Wolverine 1K customer service for new laces. They have sent me a pair for free, just for asking how to get a replacement pair.

    Crane's, care to elaborate why you wouldn't use Saphir cream? My black boots in particular are slowly progressing to be like this guys, although nowhere near as bad yet.

    I did and they send me that link. For the price I think its not that expensive considering the boots that we are going to put them into. I' buy a few pairs.

    Another photo I took after work. Wipe clean with wet towel and brush.

    Sure. Since you are going to LP these you'll probably find that a lot of your scuffs and so on are going to go away. Now if you still want to add some color you're going to have to wait a while until the LP settles down. By that I mean a few months not days. Attempting to use colored shoe wax on freshly oiled or snosealed/LPed leather tends to just be a waste of time. The color won't penetrate and shoe wax tends to do weird things like balling up.

    Ah ok, thanks for the feedback. They have been due for a new LP application for some time now, so hopefully that will take care of most of it.
