Ok, guys. I have a question. I got these Cole Haan Major Deegan's on ebay for cheap
because they were pretty dried out and not in good shape at all. I mainly just wanted
to use them as practice for stuff since I ended up selling my other set of shoes that
I had bought with the intention of practicing on them. Now I started with Lexol leather
cleaner and this is the aftermath. I waited two hours to let them get nice and dry again
and threw some Lexol conditioner on them and they turned out pretty decent. They looked
like a work boot when I got them and I have no intention of ever getting them re-soled or
anything so I plan to run them into the ground so I'm not concerned with longevity.
I have three questions:
First: Is it possible to get the darkness off of that toe without using Renomat?
I'd like to be able to find something more easily accessible to use on them since
Lexol didnt do a whole lot to clean them.
Secondly, will it over-condition them if I put on Renovateur now? (Two days later)
I dont want it to become "too soft". I just want the subtle shine and conditioning
that Reno provides.
Lastly, should I use anything on the sole edge and bottom? Dubbin? They look pretty dry.
