I have a question and I don't remember it being adressed so far. Is it wise to blend polish shades to get a better clor match for a shoe?

I own brown dress shoes a few companies, but pretty much all my shoe polish is Allen Edmonds. For a pair of Ferragamo Novaxy shoes I really love, the standard AE is a hair too dark and I was thinking, just hint of their Cognac if mixed in is pretty much an exact color match. I want to keep the shoes as close to their natural shade as possible. Is this doable or am I being too fussy?

Decided to start on the path of the mirror. Obviously not as good as Lear & co, but I hope I'm getting there.

A lot of polishers choose to mix their polishes. You should give it a go, and if it's wax you can always strip it off if it doesn't look as nice as you thought it would.

Mirror is definitely getting there. Did you use a darker polish or is this just the effect of the deepening mirror?

Actually I used a neutral polish - the leather of the captoe itself was just slightly darker when I bought it, but it's mostly the effect of the deepening mirror.

I am really curious about that Japanese shoe polishing guy that people oogle his video online. I think it was you who said he makes his own polishes. I would love to get more information on this.

It wasn't me who said that, it was nutcracker. He makes his own creams and conditioner apparently. The wax he uses was part Saphir MDO and Neutral Kiwi Parade Gloss IIRC.
