I'm by far no expert and I can certainly be wrong for all I know. But it just seems to me that it doesn't make much sense especially with a new shoe anyway. I wouldn't say it messes up the finish on everything, but it certainly removes more than any other conditioner\cleaner I've ever used.

I've used a couple types of conditioners in the past as well. But I've kind of settled on Bick4 based on @Leaves recommendation and the fact it will provide some water protection as well. @Leaves highly recommended it especially for Edward Green and the type of leather they use.​

If your shoe just came out of the oven no need to condition it.  If your shoe has been in the shelves of the store use some conditioner.  Renovateur; What for?

B4 or Lexol are good enough to keep your shoes conditioned Ttownw.  The rest of cosmetics up to you.:violin:

Does he specify what to do for EG and StC? Probably different than normal new shoes.  And Renovateur can strip the finish and change the color/add streaks.

B4 does not offer water protection.  For that use waxes.

Maybe water protection wasn't the best term, but it does help prevent water spotting.

Phillip Car says not to put reno on St. C. I assume it's for CRU / FUN shoes as it's probably fine for VNA leathers. I probably wouldn't use it on EG crust until I polished over the EG a lot of times. In general you don't want to put reno onto crust

On EG photos, not sure if this photo from Leatherfoot has been posted but really liking the grey combo:

Awesome pics and thanks for the intel.

I figured I'll never be able to get the EG Galway in Zug so yesterday I purchased the AS Kelso in Zug. Definitely the "poor/unlucky-to-have-missed-the-Skoak-GMTO" mans version, but figure they'll be a good alternative. Purchased from Shoehealer for a fantastic price, and he was nice enough to include some Saphir "waxy leather" cream. Veldt construction on Commando, but definitely not as iconic as the Galway.
