Lincoln Wax is best polish I have used. Have carried it at the shop for 10 years. Good enough for the USMC, good enough for me.

Apparently the Silvano Lattanzi polishes that Louis Boston distribues are by Kiwi with a Lattanzi label affixed.

Any idea who manufactures Allen Edmonds shell cordovan shoe cream? Cura or someone else? I don't see any shell cordovan cream on Cura's website though. And how effective is their cream compared to, say, Alden's shell cordovan wax polish?
