I just did a search and found nothing conclusive as to the best way to polish/protect my new shoes. I wonder if anyone has any more recent input in this regard?

Basically, I just want to put an initial protective coating on the shoes; will meltonian neutral creme do the job (I have some)? Is there a wax that is recommended to preserve and enhance the inherent color of E.G. chestnut? I do not care about super high shine, and would like to avoid any heavy build or flaking. I will not wear them very often, so excessive applications will not be an issue.

Andrew, meltonian, although a good cream, will not protect the leather, if having a difficult time finding a wax to match, try a KIWI nuetral, but you might see if AE has a color close, in a goodCarnauba Wax Shoe Polish...this is the best polish/wax you can use, but it is rather exspensive in the overall pricing of polish.
