My opinion, too. But I'll have to live with it.
It's totally fine if you like them that way.
But here are my 2 cents.
Over conditioning/saturating the leather could lead to damage through rotting of fibers.
Excessive grease/sticky residue on the surface tend to absorb and collect dirt which will act as an abrasive in waves on the vamp.
And cosmetical issue - shell should glow in my opinion.
Your shoes look like they've been hit with a lot of oily conditioner at one time.
You can try to use dish soap with anti grease effect. I'm not an American so don't know what do you use.
It should help.

Whats up ya'll! Long time no post! Just popped in to post a few pairs of vintage shoes I recently thrifted.
90s? Cole Hann Braganos with a really great shape

Aristocraft wingtip kilty loafers for my personal collection. I've got really narrow feet, so finding a pair of loafers that don't slip is rarer than hens teeth.

Picked these up from the bins in Salt Lake City. I've never seen this brand before, I'm guessing 60s? I'm usually wrong on the shoe age guessing game though. Anyone come across this brand before? Insoles say "Webster Shoes for Men Custom Grade"

And one more, a nice pair of v-cleats that I'm also drawing a blank on. The brand label on the insole is basically unreadable and theres no size or model info on the interior either. Couldn't say no at $3 though. Again, any thoughts about them would be much appreciated!

Hey Suit:
I think Tammy used to be a big user of Renomat as a makeup remover!
Kilowatts
I grew up on a steady diet of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker..PTL loyal for life. Sadly I never got the chance to visit their theme park.

They had a theme park??!
Oh yes. I don't have a link at hand, but check Wikipedia--it was called Heritage USA, in Fort Mill, SC. Their TV broadcasts came from there, full-on expensive tv studios besides the usual Christian theme park stuff. As a kid/teen I was thoroughly soaked in their brand of televangelism/evangelicalism.

Hi guys:
Still a little off topic but when I first arrived in North America from Europe I simply couldn’t believe US televangelism. I vividly remember Jimmy Swaggert with tears in his eyes asking for money so he could buy a Boeing 747. Very American.

C&J for Mr. Lifshutz’s clothing company, and matching trees. Wish these weren’t my size, but they are. And it’s senior day so 20% off clinches it.
