Nice! Thank you. I didn't know you could do that...I've never had the problems you had to begin with but I've seen it.

And now I've seen the solution.

thanks to Jeroen, too.

Just gave my well-worn pair of Oxblood double-monks a good clean and polish and thought I'd share the results.

Saphir Renovateur followed by Colonil Mahogani cream wax, followed by a light touch of Saphir paste wax in black on the toe caps.

dang...neeeeeeeeeeed :) amazing depth in that color.

 

I also engaged in some shoe shining activites this weekend. My almos 3 year old C&J Edgware.

Wasnt happy with how they looked so I stripped them clean and gave it some red-ish tint by applying mahogany cream and dark brown wax.

I did my research before asking and that was suggested more than once. I was still a little hesitant, but figured it was worth a shot. Thrilled with the result.

Who is it if you don't mind me asking? I remember reading about a member on here making his own polish but I can't remember who it was.

I just moved the flame quickly over the areas. You can hear a cracking noise when you get the "hairy" spots. There isn't much to it.

Thanks Niklas - and those C&Js look very rich and lustrous - well done.
