    I also uses Kiwi parade gloss for my light tan Edward Green Dover. I don't see any bad results (after 6 months). However, Some shoe cream occasionally will help the leather to stay, as for any high quality polish.

    Taken directly from the "Kiwi" web site...

    KIWI Parade Gloss gives shoes and brilliant, durable shine. That's because its superior multi-wax blend contains premium wax and more carnauba wax than regular paste polishes. The result - a brighter, longer lasting shine that's water repellent. Covers scuffs and leaves a mirror finish in minimal time.

    No mention of Silicone just waxes. I've used it for years. I try to take pride in my shoes. I too have had many compliments about my appearance due to the look of my shoes. As to life being too short, I clean my shoes as well as my wife's in 30 minutes every Sunday morning. Job done.

    Being from the Royal Danish Lifeguards, we use kiwi on all parade leather gear. Boots, sword sheath and ammunition bag. The gear except for the boots are often more than a decade old and Kiwi parade gloss is the only thing used to polish and care for the leather. It protects and cares for the gear perfectly, as well as keep it a pitch black color. I use it on all my business shoes and they are all more that 5 years old. Its not at all damaging or hurting the leather at all.

    I recommend using it!
