    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

    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.

    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.

    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!
