Renovateur is, of course, French for renovator. You don’t renovate something that is new. A good dose of bick4 conditioner will nourish and highlight museum calf or Patina’d leather. Then, if you want to add a cream or paste wax for added shine, you certainly can. 👍🏼
Gotcha, yeap, you're right.

Which of the plethora of Saphir Medaille D’or cream polishes should I use on my Meermin 102630 - Gold Museum Calf shoes?

These are brand new, should I apply Renovateur prior to applying the cream polish?
Would you please post pictures under natural / different lights ?
Thanks in advance, I'm interested in these but I'm not sure how they really look.

Thanks, not sure if I like the color as it seems a bit busy for my taste.

I think that when you put museum calf with a direct flash you get a lot of where the shoe is painted, don't know how to explain. But I remember when I got my Carmina's, tried to take to pics, one with the right exposure and other over exposed but with no direct light:

Normal exposure

Over exposed

And when wearing them outside, most of the time they look like the first one.
