I used it too on the car seats, works very well; however, I prefer Gliptone's liquid leather that has also a fresh leather scent. On the shoes, however, not that well; I tested it on a pair but could not get a proper shine and it leaves a sticky residue in the creases.
So I see no advantages in using Lexol on the shoes albeit some sweat by it.
Look at the Leather quality and care thread. A lot of chemistry and people who know a lot about leather and the industry generally say to avoid it.
I'd personally ignore it. If you use renomat to rid it then it will be a chore to biuld the finish back up. Not worth it, imo. I'd have more of an issue with the dick and balls medallion.
Interesting. I thought Horween recommends using VSC on their shells and CXLs.
If you want to retain the oillyness of some CXL's and Shell I would use the cordovan cream. I personally use Lexol on everything for conditioning at the moment, but I will be trying out GlenKaren products at some point, which seem to have a lot of logic and science behind them. I only use Wax on the toe and heels, and for shell infrequently a touch of cordovan cream on the vamp over the Lexol, and regular shoe cream on the vamp of calf very infrequently over the Lexol. Again, I will be trying out GlenKaren products as part of this routine as well.
