Black and brown shoes inhabited my shoe racks. Something new had to happen. Red shoes were the choice. I sent Italian leather to my shoemaker in Warsaw, and, as always, he made me a pair well-fitting of shoes, which were a very red pair of shoes too.
I expected that though, and I had a plan: black shoe wax. I new it would change the colour significantly but I wasn’t exactly sure of the result. Here it is, a much more subtle colour, although you still have that dandy touch, which red tends to produce.
