Always hard to reflect on the ones that got away.

So I used to be a huge fan of Saphir products... until I discovered the magic of GlenKaren products here on SF. Although the Renovateur smell is pretty good, it pales in comparison to the orangey smell of Glenkaren. I used the conditioner cleaner on a pair of my EG shoes. In regards to using the conditioner cleaner, you apply a small amount on the shoe. After leaving it alone for about 10 minutes, you do your initial brush, which is the shoe indicated on the left. Leave it alone for another 10-15 minutes, and you brush it again, which is the shoe indicated on the right. Here are the results:

 

 

What do you gents think? This product is the shit in my opinion :slayer:. I think I might replace Bick4/Saphir Reno in favor of this. 

 

Edit - I just realized I followed the instructions for the cream polish on GlenKaren's website lol. Regardless, I ended up rubbing/buffing the shoe at the end, which produced lovely results.  :)

I have been considering dyeing my pair as well - I'm thinking that the contrast is a little too much even for someone in my profession fing02[1].gif
Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

Now I'm kinda scared to "experiment."

My initial response to your idea of dying these shoes is suede can be far more tricky than leather.
Furthermore, if they get wet, your dye job could be severely compromised.

If seller did the dye job or had them re-dyed and lists them as "Made from dark oak leather and brown nubuck suede vamps" and "Brand new, unworn. First quality..." without disclosing the re-dye, I'd find that questionable at best.

I'm selling a brand new red corvette. I mean it was shi* brown, but I had Maaco paint it red. I don't need to disclose that right...peepwall[1].gif
