Sorry, I'm across the pond. Get on the dog and give them a call.
Seems like you know what you want and are intending to check out in the Londinium store.

Replace the sole when it is very thin or has already cracked or has holes. Consider heel replacement at same time. Consider applying Topys if you are concerned about rate of wear and cost.
There really is no secret to a shine - wax + elbow grease. Maybe use a neutral wax until you know what you want to do with the colour.
No experience with the aforementioned products, but if you wish to change the colour of your boots and add a shine a little, then a decent polish is the obvious way to go. The trick is to choose a colour that when applied to your boots will result in a colour that is acceptable.Choose a good brand of polish without harsh ingredients and use it religiously once a week for a month or two without conditioning to see how the colour and shine develops.
