    What would you recommend as an alternative? Also, why are you trying to avoid petroleum distillates? (Just curious, I am still new to the whole shoe care game, especially with shell.)

    I had a similar mark on the same shoes (C&J Selbournes). I decided to ignore it and view it as patina, and te next time I went to wear them it was gone.

    Look at the Leather quality and care thread. A lot of chemistry and people who know a lot about leather and the industry generally say to avoid it.
    I'd personally ignore it. If you use renomat to rid it then it will be a chore to biuld the finish back up. Not worth it, imo. I'd have more of an issue with the dick and balls medallion.

    What is the difference between Saphir Invulner and Saphir Renovateur suede sprays? Do I need both?

    These arrived this morning. Herring Holmes 2 made by Alfred Sargent. I normally just use Saphir renovator on new shoes, but i was thinking about using saphir graisse, followed by renovator, any thoughts? Is putting Graisse dubbin on new shoes too much?
