Meermin. Carmina 2nd brand? - Page 80
Nope, that might just be bad lighting, altough I can't actually see it.
Engi:Thank you, I only use Saphir products, if interested check out the official shoe care thread for tips and pointers. I get my supply from A Fine Pair of Shoes, great prices. Would recommend their wax, cream and especially the Saphir Renovateur.
Thanks a lot Christian, I suspected it was Saphir ... nice shine effect !
If the sticker weren't on a pair of shoes, I'd suggest warming it with a blow dryer. That usually works very well. But the heat might not be great for the shoes.
Maiden voyage for the Meermin oxfords. Leather treated with Renovateur, but still slightly stiff. I suggest cream/conditioner before wearing for first time. Saphir black wax first coat, and I then went crazy and put on navy blue coats for the mirror. Sole wear moderate, usual minor creases.
Bad pic (until I get new camera):

Can you please explain this to me? I've never heard this and I am new to nice shoes, so I'd love to know more!!
When the shoe leather creases, it can cause layers of polish to flake off. If you wait until the shoe has creased to thoroughly polish, you can minimize this. It doesn't hurt anything, just removes the polish you labored to apply.
