And, conversely, I don't like the way black calf ages with wear. While calf wear-wrinkles add a warm, worn character to browns, on blacks it just makes it look old and tired. That's specifically the reason why I'm interested in black shell, I'd much rather sacrifice some mirror finish for rolls rather than creases. My .02
I am glad to hear that you are pleased with the final result of the Museum MTO.
There is not a problem to use Renovateur on the shoes, you won't strip the finishing.
It will be a great conditioner to use to care for your shoes.
If you want to polish them up, I think that the better option to keep the hues of the leather will be to use neutral polish, to not 'cover' it with the polish wax.
I hope you'll enjoy wearing them!
This may be nitpicky, but how come Meermin doesn't move the imprint on the bottom of the sole? After a few wears, all of that gets scratched off and disappears. Or do you all wear shoe taps to prevent this from happening? I'm kind of sad that there is no more imprint on my double monks anymore.
Was hoping that the Museum MTO would be different since it's a LM shoe and maybe they would've imprinted it somewhere else like other shoemakers do so it won't disappear after a few wears.
