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?post #117887 of 12241610/12/15 at 5:21amQuote:Originally Posted by J One

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:
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.post #117888 of 12241610/12/15 at 5:34am
Please help my pair find a good home.
Too bad the last doesn't work too well for me.post #117889 of 12241610/12/15 at 5:50ampost #117890 of 12241610/12/15 at 5:52ampost #117891 of 12241610/12/15 at 6:50ampost #117892 of 12241610/12/15 at 7:03ampost #117893 of 12241610/12/15 at 7:12amQuote:

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.

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?
