db I use Saphir exclusively. Creme for color and wax for shine/protection. For my Rutledges in AEs "Burnished" variation of Walnut, I went with Saphir Med. Brown creme and wax. For my Strands which are just the regular Walnut color I use Saphir Light Brown creme and wax, which actually seems to be a better color match than AEs own product.
SouthNarc, have you considered using Saphir's clear creme and wax? With the wonderful burnishing on those shoes, I would be hesitant to mess with the color. On the shoecare thread, many of the posters swear by the Saphir clear products for shoes with interesting antiquing or burnishing.
