I am only stating what everyone is thinking. What new opinions can there be? There are two choices, wax or paste.

Is that ok with you? Why the hostility? If you don't like the thread, simply move along...

The Collonil premium products seem to work well on my shoes. The premium lines are made of predominately natural products so they are very light and versatile for many leather types.

In this thread I show how to apply snoseal and I'm doing it to a pair of shell cordovan boots. I'm a firm believer of proactive maintenance versus reactive which seems to be what most people end up doing. Post 30.

Any reason you didn't post an after picture? I read the link you posted and only saw pics of the boots before and during the sno-seal process.

Buff occasionally, but no shine. She oils in the cordovan allow the leather to pretty much take care of itself.

Sorry, totally missed that. I am surprised that it worked given that cordovan is actually a membrane.
