    Morning all,
    What is the recommended care for chromexcel naturals? Any polish or just conditioner?

    I would recommend to only use a neutral leather conditioner, like Lexol or Bick 4.

    I have always been worried about this issue so I use neutral edge dressing, though for all I know neutral edge dressing might discolor uppers in the same fashion

    I have large feet and am always getting these scuffs from stairs because my heels sometimes scrape the face of the stairs. I know I should be more careful. Is Saphir Renovatur the best product for addressing these scuffs without damaging the original finish or should I be using AE's saddle soap?

    I have tried using AE's walnut polish in the past but it doesn't clean the black mark up

    I use the small AE travel size for edge dressing. The applicator is very small and the small bottle is like a short marker. I've never had a slip. Its also water based, which I've read is easier to remove in case of an accident.

    No scale to the image, but its about 3 inches tall and 3/4 inch in diameter.
