Im picking up a pair of the apc derbies in caramel this weekend, and am wondering if you guys could advise me on how to care for them? Does this type of leather need to be waterproofed? I ordered Saphir neutral creme, and am wondering if this would suffice? Would you do anything else to care for this type of leather? I don't want to alter the caramel color if possible.

Thanks

Saphir Renovatuer, then light brown wax. Buff. That's it.

What is the difference between the neutral creme and the renovateur? Would brown wax alter the color?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
