Color matching: Edward Green & Saphir

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Searched some time there seem no centralized post for this topic.
I guess most of Edward Green owners use Saphir shoe cream/wax
Why don't you share your matching?
Let me start with my choice

Edward Green - Saphir
Dark Oak - 05 Dark Brown (sometimes 01 black for antiquing)
Edwardian - 03 Light Brown (09 Mahogany for antiquing)
Burgundy - 08 Burgundy (sometimes 01 black for antiquing)
Burnt Pine - 37 Mid Brown (05 Dark Brown for antiquing)

I use Saphir's neutral polish for my non-black EG shoes - bronze antique, midnight blue, old rose & chameleon

Of the Saphir ('gold medal') products, I also prefer to use Saphir’s neutral polish

Not just for EGs but in general

 

This runs counter to Saphir's popularity and hence- I assume-  to most  people's 'user experience', but I have found that Saphir coloured creams have a tendency to 'take away' the original colour of the upper if there is a mismatch and so unless you know what  matches with some certainty- perhaps as suggested by Modic for the EG colours case-  you may well end up with some local discoloration

 

Bottom line, I hesitate to use Saphir coloured creams and prefer creams that lead to little/no discoloration when there is a mismatch; unless I am trying to ‘change things’ (more general than antiquing)

I agree your statement.
That's one of the purposes of this post, to collect experiences from you those expertises on color matching.

People said using neutral for a long time darkens the color.
Do you find the case?
