    Great job on the shine, guys. That said, am I the only one that doesn't like shine on leather? I like leather to look and feel like leather and not plastic/patent.

        Sure, but leather can appear in many forms and finishes. To say, "look and feel like leather" is describing leather in a very narrow view. Having said that, I like shine on my dress shoes only. I prefer a more mat appearance for work shoes. For me, that is. On other people, I probably don't have a preference at all. And I'm always quite smitten with Prof. Horseyhead's, however he's wearing them!

          Aw shucks.

          Work-type boots (Higgins, Trumans, Sturgis 2.0, Thursdays, etc) don't get shined. I just clean 'em once or twice a year and throw some Bick 4 down. Shell just gets brushed.

          The rest get wax on the toes and pigmented cream everywhere else.

            All is forgiven. I mean, you really pull off those gold Adidas.

            I was sooooooo tempted to get the brown velvet Stan Smiths ... These ones: https://www.adidas.com/us/stan-smith...ceid=543457011

              Dude those are fantastic!

              I have too much yard/other "dirty" stuff to get into tomorrow for it, but maybe when I go to the range here in a couple days I'll bust out the Tigers n Toucans and gold Stans.

              ....that, or a suit with Daltons.

                  I went thru boot in 2003 when we still wore BDUs and black boots, so yes.

                  Now that it's OCPs and suede, I don't know that they do anymore

                          From Carmina's April MTO (when their factory was dead in the water and MTO was the only way to pay the bills, due to social distancing). Navy museum calf, which yields a beautiful marbling that I haven't seen in their other museum colors. Very subtle and not splotchy, plus at night it looks like just a plain black shoe. Can't tell from the pic but these are actually true balmoral oxfords, with the long vamp that wraps around the heel; I didn't want just a blue version of plain black captoes. The weird crinkly v-gap is just how Rain-lasted oxfords fit on me at first. Will stabilize into a regular V after a bunch more wears.
