I have Saphir Reno and cream polish. Am about to get a new pair of Allen Edmonds loafers and was wondering should I do something to the loafers before wearing them? Should I apply some polish or reno? Also, as far as the procedure is concerned, could you lay something out when using the the saphir products? Also, when using a horsehair brush, is there some special technique like in circles, up and down, side to side, or does it matter?   Thanks!  
Do you guys recommend putting on a coat of polish and using cleaner/conditioner before wearing a new pair of shoes for the first time?  
k thanks, so the polish will turn them darker?  
Just got my shoes and while I love them, it would be nice if they were a tad bit darker brown. If the polish I use is a bit darker than the original leather, will it permanently change it to the darker brown as long as I polish regularly(how often should I polish)?

Wouldn't it make sense to use the Reno more frequently just to clean the shoes and use polish when the shoe needs some shine?
  K will do, what about the other stuff though? I've been seeing that Saphir Renovateur  is a really good product. Would a process like this be good enough to keep my shoes clean and nice and shiny and looking new?   1.Clean/remove stuff using a horsehair brush(DO I ALSO NEED TO USE A CLOTH AFTER THIS?) 2.Use Saphir Renovateur all over the shoe, let dry for 3-5 minutes 3.Remove excess using horsehair brush 4.Buff out with cloth   Would that be good enough, or should I...
There is so much stuff in this thread, I don't know what to do for my shoes. I just purchased these Allen Edmonds loafers, and want to know the best way to maintain the new look and how to care for them. What are some products that I should buy? Would a cloth, AE condition, and AE polish be enough or what else should I get? Should I purchase a shoe tree, if so what is a good cheap one? How often should I be cleaning them? They are expensive so I just want to make sure I...
