I wouldn't call it a phobia, but yes, you don't want to saturate the leather with too much oil. There is about 4 times as much oil in the cleaner/conditioner as there is in the cream polish, and the cream polish has a higher concentration of oil than a paste polish.

Not so much a phobia, but more so of an awareness, and yes, thanks for the response. 

 

My AE LaSalle had not seen anything more than your products (exclude the spit shine paste) for the last six months plus, and is still kicking the road around LOL! Although I guess I need to stand the conditioner down a bit.

anyone ever tried the waterproof cream on shell cordovan?

@patrickBOOTH had the experience with waterproofing cream on shell. Personally, I see either line is sufficient with shell. If you have cosmetic concerns then I'ma telling you, nothing can help.

What do you mean by cosmetic concern? Like it's going to change the color?

My experience with shell is that it spots up when wet and has to be stripped and re shined to get rid of the spots. Waterproofed or not.

Most likely for the sake of lighter color shell. Or else, whatever Pat says below.

Yeah, so much for being stuffed without sufficient moisture content.

hum, guess I will stick with my current regime on shell then (i.e.a bit cream and not much). I haven't run into water spot issue though (two from CJ, one from Ron rider, though both were on the darker side)
