Is the glenkaren cleaner/conditioner and paste wax good for cordovan, or should I stick with Reno? I've got both right now
post #9482 of 19067
I wouldn't use the gk cleaner conditioner unless it is severely dry cordovan with a lot of wax buildup. Their regular cream polish is great on cordovan as is Reno

Are wholecut shoes relatively more difficult to break in?  Do they crease in a different way to other types of shoes? Is there anything else to know about them?  Yours, Munky.

Thinking of buying this factory second pair of Meermin shoes. In your opinion, do you think it would be easy to get rid of this scratch with some reno, small layers of cream and wax?

Re all this talk about minor scuffs and scratches. Isn't this mostly the result of wearing shoes? If you are worried about this sort of thing, I would think it best to put your shoes on a high shelf and forget about them. Oh and in bags and in a dark room.

Given that it's an actual laceration rather than just an indentation, combined with the placement, I would pass, personally.

I don't mind defects elsewhere, but the toe and vamp are the most noticeable parts and I prefer to have them in good condition.

Kind of looks like the toe cracked while the shoes were being lasted.

Thanks for the advice. I've never dealt with a scratch/laceration (cross fingers), yet, so I had no clue. Glad I posted first.

You can cover that up to where it wouldn't be noticed at eye level while wearing them. If they are a few bucks off I see nothing wrong with it. People here have OCD.

Yeah that is what it looks like.  I wonder why they went through with the rest of it when that had to have happened relatively early on (at a minimum before the making).

Decided to share my first shine with you all smile.gif. Thanks for all the advice they came out beautifully, the photos dpnt do the justice, you can see reflections of actual objects in them now, amd they are better than the shoes polished by my cobbler !. Just wanted to say thank you for your help amd guidance. I am not claiming these to be a true mirror shine but they sure look nice to me 😄
