I’ll post more pictures when I’m on my PC, as posting multiple pictures from mobile causes them to screw up the order.

    Thanks. The Horween Chromexcel leather on the Wolverines is beautiful. These were $400+ boots before they were discontinued!

    I really like the detail in that leather. My go to pair right now is Coach Bryant Wingboot in black. (No I didn't pay retail price for them) I also like the imperfection on the redwings.

    That's what led me to get them. They were in overall really good condition, and the repair was done quite well. That, along with the overall patina they developed and showcased with a proper cleaning/reconditioning, made them really cool. I'm glad the buyer (a local mechanic) is going to put them to good use!

    Made my way to this thread from your antique post. Pretty cool, where do you normally post the boots that you refurbish?

    Thanks. I've an Instagram page that started off as being dedicated to reviewing gear (e.g., boots, tools, travel accessories) that I find interesting and with honest feedback, but it's pretty much turned into a boot restoration page where I occasionally post interviews with the owners of boot- and leather care-related companies. You can find it at https://www.instagram.com/damngoodgear/.

    Everyone in my family seems to use Instagram as their go to social media. I’m the only holdout. I just needed a reason to take the plunge.

    John - I visited your Instagram page. Lots of cool stuff. Do you sell items from that page or occasionally post items here?
