Primer: Refinishing a pair of Crockett & Jones shoes using Fiebings oil dye

I just finished recolouring my favourite pair of Crockett & Jones.  These shoes have a Dainite sole and have been my default shoe for wet days and for travelling for conferences, etc.  I have noticed that the colour had faded a fair amount from the vamp area and I wanted to bring them back to their dark brown original colour.  I used "dark brown" Fiebings oil dye mixed with some Lexol.  I also used some Saphir edge dressing cream on the sole edges as the leather layer was getting worn and rather pale.
