Dandy Shoe Care - making dreams come true

The Russian/Italian Grand Duke, Master Patina Designer Alexander Nurulaef aka "Dandy Shoe Care" can make shoe dreams come true. I mean when a gent needs a "splash and dash" and revival of the shoe or just "pimping" the shoe to higher levels. Now I am aware that "pimping" is not the right word, but.....let those shoe dreams come true and a big thanks to "Dandy Shoe Care" that he can make it possible. 

Dreams coming true, a full brogue Oxford, a quarter brogue Oxford and a wing tipped Derby. Hmm...candy for the kids or Christmas for the grown ups.

  1. Amazing work as usual Alexander.. Alexander, if you are reading, what would the cost be, roughly, for you to put a lovely patina on an old pair of inexpensive shoes I don't wear any more? Just curious...

    Thanks for the post SA

  2. Hi Brad,

    Thanks for you comment and quest to Master Alexander, hopefully he reads the blog and will get back to you. I would suggest to get in touch with him direct. He is a nice man, though his English not perfect, but the Lady of the house does a better job in English.

    Have a pleasant day.

  4. Master Alexander,

    Thanks so much for your kind comment, hopefully Mr. Brad Susany sees and reads your input, other wise I will forward the information to him. I am also happy to hear that your are not only the Grand Duke in patina, but you wish to do so in conversing in the English language. Good luck with that, and pass my regards to the Lady of the house.

    Have a pleasant weekend Master.
