    Saphir Renovateur + Mink Oil

    Hi, Does anyone have any thoughts on how Saphir Renovateur is Mink-oil based? A simple search will yield many posts touting the quality of Renovateur, but at the same time, you have, probably just as many people bad-mouthing mink oil. So what's the deal? Is Renovateur good for high-end...

    How often to polish and condition shoes?

    I got this info from "A Suitable Wardrobe". I found it to be a bit much to condition my shoes each time I polished them. I usually use conditioner every 2nd or 3rd polish. http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/...r-at-time.html 1) Apply a conditioner (e.g. Saphir Renovateur). 2) Let shoes dry a...

    How to strip and repolish shoes

    I have a pair of Edward Green shoes in which the polish is peeling and flaking. I was wondering if I should strip and repolish or any ideas on how to get a top shine without doing so. Thanks in advance.

    Black polish on brown shoes?

    From Esquire http://men.msn.com/articlees.aspx?cp...=808246&page=2 He's got a point - forgoing the brown polish is going to save you $4.99, and who doesn't like that? But does this really work? Has anyone tried black polish on brown shoes? Results?

    How to remove shoe polish?

    I polished my brown shoes with a slightly darker polish, hoping to darken them. Unfortunately, they didn't turn out as well as I'd like. I'd like to remove the wax and start over. What is the best way to do this? From reading the threads, it seems that acetone would be overkill. Are there other...

    Shoe cream vs. polish

    I've know there have been lots of shoe care threads and I've read all I could find, but one thing that I've not seen mentioned is whether the use of both cream and polish is beneficial.  If only one or the other should be used, how does one choose which to use? Regards, dan
