Here they are, the old work boots from the previous post.
One layer of conditioner, a quick diluted ethanol wipe down of the vamp, then Saphir cream polish on the vamp…and finally, some new leather laces:
The leather takes a soft shine quite easily, and there’s a certain depth to it that you don’t see on many modern leathers.
It just gives off a very different vibe – in materials, toe-shape & overall construct – especially evident when I hop onto public transport on weekday mornings and one sweep of the eye catches 20 other pair of boring, black ‘formal’ shoes.
Anyway, a little bit more work to do on the leather – stay tuned for more 🙂
