1. The Hove - Antiqued

    A new standard of barter has been established - whiskey for polishing, the better the whiskey the better the results. A good friend and customer dropped off his pair of G&G Hove’s with a bottle of 18 year old Laphroaig, hoping to get a little more colour on the toes. The result was - toebox and heelbox antiqued and bulled with brown, vintage cherry and clear wax, sole edges trimmed, buffed and polished and laces changed to flat laces. We both enjoyed the Laphroaig, so it was a very satisfying result.
