Antique tan wax help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi All, I have a C&J Clifford in antique tan. What color Saphir wax and creme should I use? Thanks.

With any shoe, the proper color depends on whether you want the shoe to remain the same or to antique over time. Use a darker polish to antique the shoe and a lighter-than-the-shoe color to keep the shoe looking shiner but otherwise the same.

Look at the color chart for cream, for example:

You could use neutral (though it won't fill in scratches), light brown, or even cognac depending on your desired result.

^^^ That is a simple and genius post. I don't think I've read a better explanation of which color wax to use before. Thank you.
