I suppose the oiling process done from Horween would make the leather looks god awful when being waxed with wax polish. I've seen awful ones, although good results have also been reported. However, their creasing nature would quickly diminish the shiny finish.

It's an oiled leather, after all, but unlike shell, it's oily to the touch, and the oiliness wouldn't go away.

My pair of polished and mildly waxed Alden CXL LHS—before I sold them.. It was fine.

Like all other things, came down to personal preference.

How was it like when you wore it, though? Yes, it looks OK - definitely not as great as shell, and isn't so close looking like calfskin, but how was the finish in general?
