Do you know what the Renovateur is used for? Perhaps you can give a step by step description of what you did with it. Oh, and what kind of shoe you used it on. To be more precise, type of leather, condition before using(waxed, not waxed, new shoe, old shoe etc)
I am followed this guide here http://imgur.com/a/yErjB up to step 8. It said after Reno cream and brushing if you are satisfied can stop. After Reno cream and brushing like become more dull.

I decided to polish it cause after rain my shoe got water spots. It's a new shoe never conditioned before made of comipel shell cordovan. It's exactly the same shoe as the one in the guide above.

Yes I meant the area where the toes joint the forefoot at the cap toe area, how to minimise or get rid of those creases after some time?
I've not known of any products that can remove creases. How else would you bend your foot if the leather doesn't crease?

How much Reno did you apply? was it a thin or thick coat? Did you let it dry before brushing it off?

Step 7 has 3 coats of conditioning and step 8 has another coat. That is extremely excessive.

You can follow this guide for condtioning.

Reno is a great as cleaner-conditioner, not really meant for polishing. It'll kind of remove/smooth out previous polish and condition the leather. After that, you should have a good base to do a proper polish. Go on to step 9, and you'll see a subtle rich shine start to appear on it once you start brushing.

I applied roughly a 20 cents coin for 1 shoe in total.

I follow till step 8 then my shoe like dull so I hesitated going through the entire thing. I guess I'll follow through and see how it goes, I have a saphir black wax shoe polish that came with my shoe.

Go easy on the wax. Maybe try some more brushing and buffing first. It could be because you put too much conditioner that not enough of it was brushed off, leaving a matte layer.

Use minimal wax polish (usually not needed) for your shell cordovan shoes. Its different maintenance than calf leather.

Hi anyone know any other online viberg reseller that's sells viberg slipper? Most online store I check don't have the viberg slipper sibei sian. Main reason for not buying via viberg.com is thanks to the $75usd shipping fees.

If anyone know please let me know, tia.
