Can't you get quality these days??

Pulled out the Italian leather Fieldsheer dressy motorcycle boots I bought at Cycle World West from a discount bin around 1997, which I wore through torrential downpours, heat and everything in between until I got a used pair of Alpinestars around 2000, which I washed a couple of times but can't recall ever treating with leather treatment, because I wanted to ride to a hearing and big clunky boots weren't going to cut it. They've been in a box since about 2005.

The leather is showing some slight cracking on the surface now. Might have to put on some polish and conditioner.

And since the shop is closed down, there's nowhere obvious to complain about the cracking. I thought these things were supposed to last!
