Folks, I have a case of dry and uneven shades of brwon shell (non Alden), what is a good conditioning cream to use on shell. I currently use Renovateur but it seems to be more of a cleaning cram rather than a conditioning one. Also has anyone used Renomat on shell is it safe?

You likely have a case of a shoemaker using material from different shells.

Some folks are ok with the variations in the color.

 

If you want to condition only, and want to stick with Saphir, use:

in Neutral

 

If you want to even out the color, I would use the same in Dark Brown.

 

Renomat is a stripping agent, and should be used only when necessary to remove buildup of polishing materials and/or acrylic.

Your shoes will initially look horrible post Renomat. You will HAVE to use some crème or paste wax with color in to even out the tones afterwards.

Please help my pair find a good home.

Too bad the last doesn't work too well for me.

I might just have to bite the bullet, then. Haven't seen a pair of snuff suedes pop up on the seconds list since i subscribed.

Adam, you are looking good my friend in your Indy boots. Cigar is a great color on that boot. Yeah, creasing is a funny thing.

Looking great, Unc! Need to get sized on the LHS so I can go straight to cigar (and skip the #8 color).

Also, Need Supply and Haberdash run sales pretty frequently and Aldens are often included.

That is some dark Cigar, but still looks great!  Looking forward to seeing how those look aged/worn in

 

Also makes me think a black shell wingtip boot with antique edging would look pretty nice too; has that ever been done before?
