Like I posted before, Nick Horween recommends Venetian Creme for shell cordovan and Venetian Creme is Turpentine based, so....I have also used Renovateur on my shell shoes. However, I notice that the description of the proper care of Shell Cordovan here:
Indicates that the use of products with Turpentine in them is not recommended for shell cordovan care.
Now it is clear that Renovateur contains turpentine simply by the aroma.
Might this mean that we would not be well advised to use Reno on our Shell shoes?
I'm not saying I actually know. Just raising a topic for discussion.
In any case - the minimal use of polishes and products is widely supported.
