    [MENTION=17354]mebejoseph[/MENTION] and [MENTION=15101]armedferret[/MENTION] you guys are an inspiration. Especially when I haven't polished my shoes in I don't know how long. I definitely need to get on it though, as my AEs are starting to show the signs of needing some love.

    Never been in the military, but thank you for the compliment! I've been watching a lot of youtube videos lately on how to shine shoes.

    When your boot camp is may-june-july in san Antonio and over 70% of the days are too hot to be out on the drill pad marching, you spend plenty of time in the living areas shining boots. lots of practice.

    It's Show Off Your Shine Friday! I spent a couple of hours on these last night and I am very happy with the results!

    AE Stuttgart model. I picked them up on a Nordstrom Rack sale for just $173 (although I could have purchased them for only $140, but missed the one day sale--I think they're $209 now).

    No, I think there is one missing from the left center of the medallion on the right shoe.

    I was wondering about that. I have never owned a pair of cordovan shell shoes and I don't know that I want to make that large of an investment.

    But thanks for giving me a bit more incentive to think about doing it.
