What color polish for AE's chili should I use. I've been using "Mid tan" kiwi with really nice shine. But, if Kiwi gives me that good of a shine I would think Lincoln would do even better. So, mahogany? Light brown? Tan?

Also, how can I bring out the red in my merlot shoes. Oxblood or red polish? Cream?

I actually use the AE "chestnut" cream on my chili colored shoes. For me, I have found that the chili cream darkens the shoe too much. The chestnut is a bit lighter and maintains the leather very well.

I also have been using the AE chili cream, but will follow up with a Kiwi Mahogany wax and am getting a hint of more red -- I like this alot.

Sounds good to me!
Anyone know if Angelus or Lincoln's mahogany is the same?

Angelus Mahogany worked so well I can see my reflection.
