I'm looking for any advice or experience that someone may offer in taking care of the John Lobb Dark Brown Misty Calf finish. I've done some research here and have seen some problems with sustaining the museum calf finish but have not seen anything similiar said about the Misty. When I say problems I'm specifially talking about this thread.
I have a pair of the 2010 St. Crepin in Dk. Brn. Misty and really want to preserve the finish as best as I can, understanding that all shoe care products change the color of the shoe slightly over time. I'm not a newbie to polishing shoes but taking care of the appealing subtle antiquing is something that is outside of my lane.
So with that said I have worn them probably ten times in six months and just tonight went over them thoroughly with Renovateur, so I'm ready to start actually polishing. I have the JL Dk. Brown creme and wax along with JL Neutral creme.
Any advice specifically regarding the Dk. Brn. Misty would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to screw up the finish on a $1500+ shoe due to my ignorance.
