After I used the Obenauf's for water proofing (a few days later) I use neutral Kiwi wax - I get a decent shine - you will never get the high gloss of Shell on CXL - but the the CXL looks great - I prefer it over Shell now that I have owned both. BTW - heavy brushing really brings out the depth in CXL. My cap toe oxfords from Orivs are my only dress shoes.
I have been using Saphir Renovateur on all my Wolverine and Alden CXLs. It gives a great depth and mellow shine to them and you don't need much.
Next time look into B Nelson Shoes since you have nothing around, there are lots of reviews on here. Everything i have seen is great. You'll have to ship to NY, but they do nice work for a good price. I have not used them, but have seen and heard nothing but good stuff. Next time dont give them away just send them out for full resole and add a toppy.
