I have a normal pair of brown cordovan that is (should be) a medium brown. I ended up getting Saphir Reno and also the natural Cordovan Cream. Absolutely fantastic. Just talking about it makes me want to polish them again tonight, which I will probably do.
I also have the navy polish for my black shoes (calf) from Saphir, another top notch product. Use very sparingly, I ruined a pair of laces because that polish STICKS.
I highly recommend it. I alternate Alden brown paste wax and the Saphir Dark Brown Cordovan cream on my cigars. The cordovan cream adds more moisture.
Just received my first pair of Alden shoes, Indy boots in Black. They are seriously the best looking shoes I have ever seen. The leather and quality is simply just amazing. Was worried with the warmer days they I would be unable to wear them, like I could with my red wing chukkas, the indys are only 1 1/2 inch higher, and a lot lighter in weight.
To care for them I plan on just brushing them once in a while. Is there anything else anybody would recommend?
A boot would be a different story. Would look similar to a pair of jump boots then.
Thanks for the info. I just checked the website and don't see where you are finding this. Would you mind posting a link when you get a chance?
GREAT SHOE! Hard for for me. Too big or too small but I got the larger size and they get a lot of wear. Stand up like troopers.
I think I may be a fan too. I recently picked up the Cordovan color of it and it does seem to moisturize better than Venetian or Renovateur. I have only used it on my Burgundy AE Cambridges, but that pair does not bloom as much as my other shoes where I was only using Venetian or Renovateur. I am probably going to pick up a jar of the neutral one next time I am near B. Nelson.
Here's a picture of the Burgundy to show everyone the color.
