Thanks for sharing the results! The vamp on the right shoe looks amazing--what a difference did the Renovateur make! I actually much prefer the shiny look of the leather on the right so I will likely through some Reno on mine as well. Also, I wouldn't worry too much about making them dressier than they were intended. As far as I am concerned, the combination of natural edge, brass eyelets, contrast stitching, and alabaster laces would still give them a casual kick even after tons of Saphir.
