This is how I got the boots. Dirty but in good shape. Time to clean them up. Not sure if I will get them resoled or use them as display with the spike bottoms. Cleaned up using soap and a brush. Oiled,and laced up.
No one said shaving with a straight razor would be easy at first. One month, and a couple of small nicks later I think I have it down. My only regret is taking so long to jump on the nostalgic bandwagon.
