    Kiwi seems to be pretty standard. Also how do you match color with polish. Example, I have a pair of AE Hilcrest I used KIWI tan polish last night. It seemed to work, but how about mild tan. Do you need to do anything to the sole or heel or edge?

    I use Saphir. One place you can get it is here https://www.hangerproject.com/shoe-care.html. For the sole edges, I just rub in some Saphir Renovateur. Just get the color closet to your shoe leather...just be aware that darker cream polishes can sometimes darken the leather over time.
