Many Alden fans use only a minute amount of wax every so often to finish polishing their Alden shell cordovan. The use of wax on Alden cordovan is often attributed to the unique finishing that Alden applies to its cordovan (as well as to Alden's own directions). On other cordovan, e.g., Carmina, cordovan-specific cream is generally fine and you could use a bit of wax every so often. Regardless, less is always more when it comes to cordovan care.
