But if I did buy from AE, which products should I get?
Between AE and Sapphir? The cleaner/conditioner is a cream and just by itself, really cleans up the shoe much better. Polish wise, it gives more color. Wax wise, much easier to work (tuppertine seems to melt and apply better) and looks better. You are going to spend money on maintenance anyways, but from experience, some products will do a better job bringing out that shine and color of shoes. This is where the extra money is going towards.
If you were buying AE, just get the cleaner/conditioner, polish, and/or wax depending on if you are going to apply wax.

Yeah, it's good stuff, just that there's much better out there. Some people like AE's, others like Lobbs.
