    I just acquired a pair of AE Byrons in Chili on eBay. The color is just right, I much prefer it to the lighter "walnut" or Alden's "Burnished Tan." My question: what color shoe cream will best sustain the color? Most likely I would use a Meltonian cream, and they have several colors that might be a fit. Anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks

    Saphir light light brown and yellow, or kiwi tan works too if you're at a hardware store and don't want to deal with polish and the tube.

    Strangely, this is what I use as well. Seems to match quite nicely.

    You do understand sarcasm, right?

    Is that chili con carne or no?

    Whatever you do avoid the canned versions. Very trailer trash.
