I've been looking for a bottle of this thing. I did some research and they are available online through US retailers, but I wanted to know if they're available in the city?

Nope.

But "Bars Keepers Friend" which is also another remedy for shoe care is located in the city, I believe that's used to clean mesh that has yellowed on shoes like the XI's or webbing on the V's.

Dip - I have the Sea Glow (still waiting on decent weather to break it out) but where do you pick up your BarKeepers Friend? I also heard that it "changes" the texture of the material after its' been cleaned.

A little hep?

unless loomis and toles started to carry it which would be weird.

NAME Calphalon Culinary Supplies - they have a little pyramid display down the stairs - think it was $5.50 a canister.

Got a shoe restoration project now that the weather is getting better and more sun is coming out :smile:

$5.50 a can is sure cheaper than seaglow

jumpmantwo3 - the Seaglow I bought was online from the supplier in Hawaii - Barkeeper's Friend is for the MESH plastic parts of the shoes - SEAGLOW is the stuff that whitens the clear gum soles.... I think you have to use them in tandem to get teh best results. Be careful though, I've heard and have seen pix of restored AJs and if you use too much BKF it changes up the texture of the shoe material, leaving it rougher. (I think it is pretty much similar to Comet or Ajax abrasive cleaner)

In any case, do the shoes up and post some pics when you are done.

^ yeah I saw that online retailer from Hawaii but thought there would be some other retailers in Canada...kinda expensive but probably worth it

I actually saw some post a few months back where the sole peeled from an AJ XI b/c Seaglow got into the glue area :x
