Following up with an old post about my waxed calf LWBs cracking.
I used Meltonian leather balm ($7.31 shipped) when I noticed the cracks, but it didn't seem to do much. I purchased some Saphir Renovateur ($22.00 shipped) to see if it would do any better. It didn't. The leather did not seem any more moisturized, nor did the visibility of the cracks lessen. Not sure I get the hype for $22 leather balm. Maybe it will work wonders on my shell, but I don't think I would purchase Reno again.
I ordered some Meltonian shoe cream ($4.95 shipped), in the color Cognac, which seemed to do the trick. I used this color cream on a few other little nicks and scuffs, and I think the cognac matches very well.
