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.

The OCD in me is screaming out for a detailed look at all the variations in Filson tags that have been used through the years.

For water to bead off you are going to have to apply a lot of wax as can be seen here. Personally, I don't like my luggage looking like that, so don't apply as much wax.Maybe look at something like Nikwax Wax Cotton Proof as that does promote beading.
