    I am a big fan of the Saphir Reno - Do not understand why anyone would describe it as greasy.

    ^ It's clearly an excellent product but I think that isn't suited for shoes well cared but it's perfect to restore worn, scuffed or dry leather shoes.
    I care regularly all my shoes and I found that Reno isn't so necessary, Lotion Medaille d'or (or other lighter lotions) is better for my purpose, that's all.

    that sounds reasonable.


    this

    imo, it's an exclusive quick shine product for lazy people.

    For all brown nubuck Tetbury owners - try navy polish the next time round - you'll be surprised at the instant antiquing.

    I would agree that regularly cared for shoes are unlikely to need Reno, but I purchased a pair of NOS Church's and found it was fantastic helping to moisturize them. I generally use the reno once every six months or so but do nto use it to create a shine--circurlar motion and elbow grease for that.

    I use reno from time to time and apply it to the shoe with my bare finger. I do not find it to be greasy at all, it feels slightly oily but only slightly and dries very quickly.

    Similar to you, I use Reno on new shoes because I've got no idea how long they'd been sitting there without being moisturized. Aside from that I don't use it at all. Shoe cream and wax are more than sufficient for taking care of my shoes.

    Went by the Barney's Warehouse sale in NY this morning and they had a few pairs of C&Js from what I saw.

    One size 8 and two size 10 Brown boots on the 348 last 8 eyelets (4 speed, 4 regular) captoe boots with a dainite sole for $320
    One in black of the same boot in size 10
    One pair of black plain toe oxfords in size 11 for $220. Don't recall if it had a leather or dainite sole.
