Trees in the same shape as the last? Self explanatory, no?

i think it's just an offer over the weekend, but won't hurt if you try to contact them and see if they can give you a code. personally i like free shipping > 10% because I only ordered $50 from them.

Praise of Reno. I works like magic for shell.

Hey Anden, how long did you leave the reno on before you buffed it off?

post #1895 of 10715

I applied it with a cotton cloth. Left it for a few minutes and wiped it with a clean cotton cloth. I prefer it to buffing with a brush.

Not trying to take anything away from Reno which I'm sure is a good product, but the same or better results are achievable with a cordovan Kiwi wax and/or AE cordovan creme applied the right way.

That just further proves that there are many roads to the same result. Like religion. biggrin.gif

$22-2.30 = 20$ + "availability" is what I was trying to tell...

Oh, I agree with you on the polish question..........no worries.

I won´t argue on which is best. I was just blown away by the great result. 

I did apply Saphir cordovan creme on my #8 tayussels from Alden which now looks great. Will try the Kiwi cordovan wax too. Sounds like a great product.

I've been trying out the Saphir Cordovan Cream to compare to Renovateur. More details when I have a chance to do a more thorough shine with it, but my first impressions are that the cordovan cream imparts a "harder", more superficial-looking sheen, whereas the Reno brings out a deeper glow. That said, I wear my shell boots in the rain all the time, and the shine from the cordovan cream stands up to rain (and can be brought back after being rained on) significantly better than the Reno shine, which gets rather dulled.

Gentlemen I need some advice. I have a pair of chukkas that develops the most awful wrinkle in the quarter if I put trees in, as the trees put pressure on the heel counter. Yet, if I leave them without trees, the wax job on the toe box doesn't keep as nicely. I have tried both split toe shoe trees and solid boot trees (middle grade, cedar) - and every positioning I could think of - to no avail. Recommendations?

 

Observe the wrinkle:
