    I've used the defender on shell with no problems. In fact I believe it was formulated specifically for shell cordovan - http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2011/12/22/alden-leather-defender/ But I usually only put it on during rainy season, or I'm going out to a bar where beer or something might spill.

    had a cobbler add a third eyelet to my pair of cxl chukkas, they did a fine job and it it improved the fit for me. unfortunately, they also polished the shoe with i don't know what, and i really dislike shiny cxl. these had a really nice dull glow (if that makes sense) when new. what's the best way to remove the polish and start from scratch? i already applied some reno and that didn't do much. do i step it up to renomat? an AE product perhaps?

    I recently bought Alden Leather Defender to protect my shell PTB's. I purchased it from Kathy at Alden DC (more on that story later) and she reiterated that it is mainly for shell, "but you can use it on calf too, if you want" and will prevent water spots, if caught in the rain, she also made sure to tell me to "spray it on a cloth first, then apply to the shoe using the cloth." I followed her advice, and it looks fine on shell, although I have not worn them in the rain yet.

    I plan to treat all of my shell shoes with it in the comming weeks.
