Wax them.

 

My AE Shell Leeds were very matte finish, but polished up with some Kiwi:

 

 

700

 

I also have a mini-tutorial on my tumblr (sig link).

 

Aldens are finished nice and glossy from the factory.

Yeah I probably would have been happier with Alden's but nowhere close to get fitted , so I went with BB peals , big screw up I think . Thanks for the help though,also I read here where you shouldn't use much polish

Consensus is to use "Paste Wax" not "Cream Polish".  (Just wanted to make sure you knew)  And you are correct, less is more.

This is horrible.  Can someone tell me if Horween is killing horses to get Cordovan leather?  Is it illegal to consume horsemeat in the US?    

It was just legalized recently. Horsemeat is certainly healthier than corn and soy.

If you are talking the current captoe shell boot BB sells (C&J for BB) - $998, you most likely will not be able to achieve the same level of shine of various Alden shells, no matter what you do. I have them. Mine shined nicely after an application of saphir reno, but still not to the level of some of my Alden shells. Don't worry about it .... they are still great boots.

I think C and J used the horsemeat on and my boots and ate the shell

Nope - just different.

Horse meat is delicious. Where do you think the horse hide comes from?

Seven, how about the saphir cordovan polish? Does it work? Or reno better ? Thanks

Anyone know where I can find white Vibram soles like the ones on the Need Supply Indy boots?

 

 

 

Pretty sure that's the Vibram 2060 but they only come in brown, black, and tan...

I know this question was for 7, but here's my $.02

 

I like the Saphir Cordovan Cream, but a tip for you is that it dries fast, so work it in to one section of the shoe at a time when you apply it, rather than trying to apply it to the whole shoe at once and then trying to work it in.

 

The cordovan cream adds color, the renovatuer cleans and conditions.  The cordovan cream adds moisture as well.
