I've used both products and I honesty see the merit in both - although some people feel Venetian is bad for the leather.  I tend to get a better shine from Venetian cream, but feel like the Saphir Reno conditions the leather more.  You won't go wrong with either of them, but most people lean more toward Saphir (that I've noticed at least).  I can't speak to adding color to the shoe since I've only ever used neutral.  In both cases only a little dab will do ya.  If you go overboard then the leather tends to get gummy and dull.

Here's a pair of mine. Pretty worn in.

All that's required to get that luster shown is a good brushing and then buffing with an old t-shirt; no product necessary.

I really like how they turned out.

Anyone have any experience with Fiebrings boot cream, or Wolverine's leather conditioner or oil-tanned leather cream. They are all available at a local store for really cheap. Just saw them today.

Wolverine leather's conditioner seems very paste-like but the oil-tanned conditioner seems similar to the Venetian conditioner. Fiebrings boot cream is a colored cream that maybe looks similar to Meltonian's. Though I don't have experience with any of the products. I may have the cream/ conditioner mixed up on the Wolverine products.

Again, I'm looking to get a little more shine from my oil and Obenaufs LP treated boots than what they are getting. If a product (like the colored boot cream) would darken my boots and make them less pronounced red tinged, that'd be an added bonus.

Thanks for the help and feedback!

No experience with the aforementioned products, but if you wish to change the colour of your boots and add a shine a little, then a decent polish is the obvious way to go. The trick is to choose a colour that when applied to your boots will result in a colour that is acceptable.

Choose a good brand of polish without harsh ingredients and use it religiously once a week for a month or two without conditioning to see how the colour and shine develops. Hopefully, you will get results that meet your expectations and at which point you can probably use any conditioner you like and then follow up with your usual polish and buff.

CXL is a soft leather so bear that in mind regarding expectations about the level of shine that can be reasonably expected.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. I'm not committed to actively changing the color, least not yet. And I don't need an intense high shine, I just can't seem to get some of the shine I've seen others get in photos.

There really is no secret to a shine - wax + elbow grease. Maybe use a neutral wax until you know what you want to do with the colour.

The life span of the sole is how long it lasts on a given boot before needing replacement. This will be dependent upon any number of factors - amount of use, environment, surfaces walked on, gait of the wearer, phase of the moon and the prevailing wind direction. Replace the sole when it is very thin or has already cracked or has holes. Consider heel replacement at same time. Consider applying Topys if you are concerned about rate of wear and cost.
