    Rénovateur is made to clean the shoes, take out old waxes and cream, it's meant to renovate the leather as the name states in French, not as much as to nourish it.

    Creams: The liquid Créme Universelle and the colored creams (Cirage Créme Pommadier Surfine or Cirage Créme Pommadier Médaille d'Or), the colored creams nourish AND dye the leather.
    I find the Médaille d'Or Light brown (marron clair) is perfect for Tricker's Acorn.

    Yeah, that’s just Tricker’s country shoes for you. They are made with quality materials but the whole idea is that they are rugged. If you want similar quality leather with better finishing, pick up a pair of Skye or Islay from Crockett & Jones. You will be paying between 50 and 90 quid extra. (Actually, you will be paying a lot more than that because you got the Tricker’s at a discount. You are unlikely to get a similar deal with Crockett.)

    +1 for Créme Universelle. It’s also cheaper.

    From what I have read and used personally, I find it to be one of the best leather conditioners around. And most of the people of this community do too.

    I am a big C&J fan. My next boot will most likely be that. But I do love these trickers

    Maybe, it's just not its purpose.
    Might be an overkill to use a cleaner/wax remover to condition your new shoes.

    I live in a place where the temperature is above 40°C in the summers and humidity is about 20-30%.
    Hence for me conditioning even a new pair of shoes makes sense. I am sure this is not an issues in colder or more humid climate.

    You never know how long these boots have been on shelves. So even for new boots/shoes i like to give them a through conditioning before wearing.

    Yes, i agree its a little over kill. but i am a bit particular about such things. Y take the risk of flexing even slightly dried out leather. These are expensive boots and i wanna make sure that last as long as they can. and i wanna do everything to make that happen. besides u really cant cause the leather any harm by using this before wearing.

    Conditioning a new pair is a base as it usually needs nourishing, more like hydrating the leather to keep it supple.
    I'm not talking of harming the leather, just saying that the Renovateur will remove the original dye in addition to hydrate it. I was pointing that other Saphir products will do so without removing the original manufacturer dye as a new pair needs conditioning not quite deep cleaning.
    Nevermind, as long as the Renovateur suits you, it's all that counts. Enjoy your Stow!
