If its on sale and you like it then why not?

EEA pairs are of decent quality and design

Can go their boutique and feel the goods first hand if you're unsure

I agree! Top notch service at their boutique. If their products are on sale that makes them a pretty attractive buy.

Don't quite get it... is it:
1. Promotion only applies for certain shoe sizes; OR
2. Popular shoe sizes are already sold out at this juncture and there will not be restocking for the promotion anymore?

Keeping fingers crossed that they will give EEA a run for their money.

Promotion is only applicable to ready OTR shoes. Meaning if your shoe size is say 43/44, that requires pre-ordering, it will not be entitled to the GSS quotation. But i believe they do have some large sizes for certain models and color.

Sadly, EG trees aren't lasted.
Thought EG claimed there's two version, casual and oxford and the oxford trees were based on the 202 last which is the basis for all their lasts and has widths to accommodate the slimmer lasts?

No EGs here so only know through hear say but I really love how your pair of EG Dovers looked in your pictures though I don't think I can afford worrying about how to maintain them all the time while wearing them... Guess I have the mentality of a poor man... can't enjoy good stuff...

On the other hand, I really have a severe lusting for a pair of Vass Adelaides in U last with V-cap toe in gold or plum museum calf though. Can't afford them at the moment though unless I pawn my new born

minked oil on shoes finished with burnishing effect

hi everyone! i'm a newbie here. just purchased my first pair of welted shoes after working a few months (bought an EEA wholecut with broguing at GSS sale price!).

the shoe is in mid-brown colour and finished with burnishes on the toe cap as well as the brogued areas. I was told to be careful when using mink oil products on my shoe as it may remove the burnish which i think is really nice. while reading up and researching on the products to buy, i noticed that saphir renovateur contains mink oil. so would like to ask the bros here whether anyone has erased off burnish using the renovateur before?

P.S. I wouldnt mind if the burnish at the toe cap area is removed as it does not seem too difficult to recreate the burnish but i'm not sure about the other brogued areas.

Welcome, I have used Renovateur on burnished areas before. The effect is minimal. But please take note that you should not be using Renovateur too often. Opinions vary but i would assume not more than once a month (even if you regularly applly creme and wax polish on the shoe.

Yup i think what they mean is to avoid 100% mink oil products. Otherwise Urban's advice seems pretty solid.
