On EG photos, not sure if this photo from Leatherfoot has been posted but really liking the grey combo:
stevent thank you for that info will stay away from Reno & stick to neutral cream & wax for EG & Stcrispin

Hi everyone,

In reference to my post early in the morning, I will be placing the order for Shannon through Saks. I would really appreciate color advice for my MTO Shannon boot. Please review my current collection

Current:
Chelsea Dark Oak
Hove Dark Oak
Galway Dark Oak with Walnut Country Calf

MTO in process:
Beaulieu Burdungy

Reserved with a retailer:
Dover Dark Oak

I am thinking of going with all leather for Shannon in one color.

Thank you for the help

With new shoes, I always start by putting on a thin layer of reno. Then several thin layers of cream. Works great. It does nothing to the finish at all. If you know your way around the stuff of course.

Ok I'm just trying to understand the philosophy or reasoning of needing to use this stuff on new shoes. Let me first say I must not know how to use it because when using it as I first did because I saw it recommended here on SF by other users that when I put the stuff on with a rag that I always took some finish off from my shoe. Now later when using other conditioners this was not a problem.

 

Now looking back at it and for the life of me I just don't understand why its necessary or even a good idea to put this product on brand new shoes whether you know or don't know what your doing. I find this especially the case because it seems this product is more harsh than any other conditioners I've used. Even if it doesn't remove finish when you use it it must be doing something that may not be all that good if it removes it when I put it on with a rag. It has to have some solvent that's removing finish. So even if your just putting it on the solvent is sitting there and having some kind of reaction or effect. 

 

 

So can you tell me why you think its necessary or even a good idea to use this product on brand new shoes?

I think if you go through skoak or leffot you will find a much more knowledgeable staff and an overall easier process.

If new shoes need some kind of product immediately, why doesn't the seller put that product on so I can just take my new shoes out of the box and wear em?
I know nothing of course but u am very interested to hear why you need reno, bick4, or anything else on brand new (non-suede) shoes.
post #22658 of 28891
Brand new i.e. coming from the factory via mto or shop order should not require any product. It is possible that every once in a while the leather or cordovan could be dry but I believe these would be isolated incidents. I would guess putting on product on new shoes could be required if the shoes sat on shelves for a few of months or perhaps were a floor model.

Ah, because the leather dries out in the box on a shelf and may need rejuvenating? That makes sense.

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.

 

 

Hi, where did you see the Kelso on the Shoehealer webpage?

Not on website as far as I can tell. You should email or call.

I could, but I won't. This has already been discussed to death here and elsewhere (I am sure that you can find plenty of good arguments for and against by searching SF, if you're really interested) and I am really not interested in taking part in yet another debate that surely will lead to nowhere again. I just wanted to throw my two cents on. Some people just think its good, some don't. I happen to think it's good and it works great for me. 

 

Oh, and I am sure you know your way around Reno - I am sorry if I came off sounding otherwise. ;)

Kelso is awesome, I purchased it too but I had to return it since it was too big for my feet. Good pickup Hoit.
