1) Gave it a shot. Looks like it removed a bit of the stuff, but not enough to match    the rest of the shoe. Was a good effort though. 2) I followed this and man, I'm really glad I did. I figured out how amazing Reno    can make an old pair of shoes look. 3) Yeah, didnt really look like there was any original paint left. If any, it kind of    reminded me of one of those old houses with lead paint that's peeling really bad.  Either way, after all's said and done they look...
Ok, guys. I have a question. I got these Cole Haan Major Deegan's on ebay for cheap because they were pretty dried out and not in good shape at all. I mainly just wanted to use them as practice for stuff since I ended up selling my other set of shoes that I had bought with the intention of practicing on them. Now I started with Lexol leather cleaner and this is the aftermath. I waited two hours to let them get nice and dry again and threw some Lexol conditioner on them and...
 Unless you're wearing gloves you're getting residualreno from the cloth leeching into your skin regardless.Do you suggest using gloves to apply it then?
Doesn't seem too challenging then. Is the liquid wax like a sealant?It seems like that part of the shoe would receive the most water. Perhaps I'll try this on an old pair of shoes. Seems interesting. Itend to like the light colored sole edges against some leathers.Thanks, man :) 
No problem, glad I could help.
Do you happen to know the process used to do this?Gauging from the fact that you make shoes I'm assumingyou've probably done it a time or two, but I could be wrong.
My two cents:   I own both and can't tell much difference. They smell the same, feel the same and neither seems to remove more stuff or clean better than the other so I'm thinking the MDO range just has more conditioner than the standard stuff.
The blue cap, round bottle is Saphir Renovateur.           The black cap, square bottle is Saphir Renovateur Medaille D'Or.     I know the Medaille D'Or is their higher end range and costs about double the price. As to why it's superior...I have no idea.
Then waiting it is. Thanks for the help, man. When I finally get these shoes done I'll post the results up here. May be a while. Getting married in a few days so a lot's been going on.
I found big jugs of Lexol on Amazon Prime: http://www.amazon.com/Lexol-1112-Leather-Cleaner-Liter/dp/B000637TE6/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1389276560&sr=8-7&keywords=lexol http://www.amazon.com/Lexol-1013-Leather-Conditioner-Liter/dp/B000637TNM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1389276560&sr=8-2&keywords=lexol http://www.amazon.com/Lexol-0922-Leather-Care-Sponges/dp/B005446ECA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1389276560&sr=8-4&keywords=lexol Edit*: This may not be the cheapest, but it gets to you...
