Gerry, Ias just curious.
Personally I like a mirror shine do decrease gradually towards the laces so that there isn't an apparent line where it stops. Opinions on this differ though.

I use Saphir Reno, however I was wondering what to do if I wanted to add a bit of color..
Thanks for the tip..
Would that be tan wax or cream?
I guess you don't see any issues with using something not made specific for Cordovan shoes?
So far all I have used on my Cordovan shoes to this point has been Saphir Reno and my bruish.
However I do like tohave a bit of colored polish on hand that matches the boot just in case.

Thanks for the insight and for answering all of my questions.
You have been a tremendous help.
