Those all look great. I'm always a fan of the lollipop.

looks great, Zippy! I really like the GT WT boot. I would have snagged it as well but have something very similar

C'mon man, how do you let a pesky little detail like "have something very similar" stop you? How do you expect to fill your spare bedroom with shoes?

Very true...counter point

Okay, those are very similar (and very cool looking).
I think you could still justify the golden tan if you try.

How often would you guys use the saphir
Creme on these? I have the bordeaux just didnt want to go overboard

If you scuff them, feel they need a polish or they look a bit dry and shabby. There is no strict rule as to how frequently you should polish footwear and it will also depend on what sort of a finish you want on your boots.

Some folks will polish after every wear, some every couple of weeks, some every couple of months, some will never polish only condition. You just have to find the regimen that works for you.

Thanks, Richard from shoe healer sent me a kit which included the renovateur and the mink oil just wasn't sure the exact regiment. I perused around the interweb for an idea but everyone seems to have a different opinion from one extreme to another.

Renovateur and mink oil ?

Mink oil is considered to be a conditioner. Saphir renovateur is mink oil based and is a cleaner and conditioner. So, go easy with the separate mink oil if you use the renovateur.

You would typically clean, condition and then polish your boots. Use a cloth/brush to get off all dirt and dust, then use the renovateur and finally the bordeaux polish. If the leather doesn't look dry then you can skip the renavateur.

I've got that lollipop boot from The Bureau and it's one of my favorites - wear it all the time. The other two are fantastic. Good job going overboard! Richard told me recently that Horween is not doing lollipop cavalier any longer, so it's good to scoop one up while they're still around.

If that is Horween lollipop cavalier leather, then it doesn't take polish that well, as it's a variation of chromexcel. Nick Horween told me once not to use neats/mink on this version of chromexcel. He suggested renovateur or venetian cream. I use reno + a very very rare application of saphir cream polish in hermes red if i ever need to add a little color in.
