Cheers.good choice with brown. Time has changed, ppl longer see black as a necessity.

I am working in a shirt n tie environment and I don't have a single pair of black pants or shoes :S

Definitely no intention of getting one as well
Yup I have a black pair as it is the conventional choice for a first shoe. I hardly ever wear it anymore either which is a waste as it's quite a nice shoe.

Brown kiwi wax works fine. For crème the usual recommendation would be saphir.. try tangs or carousell

Can go for Saphir's Médaille D'Or range Creme Polish and/or Wax Polish in Dark Brown/Parisien Brown.

If price is of concern, then Saphir's Beaute de Cuir range is good enough too.

Kiwi. The original post was asking for cheap and good wax and polish.

Hi all, I am looking to buy my first pair of leather shoes!

With a budget of 100 and below and dark brown color preference, which brands would be recommended?

And for socks the color is suppose to either match the pants or the shoes, is it right?

Up the budget a teeny bit and go for earnest and collective. Or keep an eye out for their sales, they recently had $109 storewide sales and often have discounted pairs sub $100.

Socks yes can match either pants or shoes, depending which style theory you go with. Nowadays it doesn’t really matter and a lot of people have fun with more colours and patterns.

thanks bro and to bro K|muRa^84 too! usually i just wear black leather shoes from bata and didn't bother polishing them at all haha so now want to learn how to with a nicer pair of oxfords first

i've been reading up online and this thread too and i noticed that there are quite a few accessories to maintain the shoes.. leather conditioner, cream or wax polish (the differences etc).. and saphir is a well sough after brand, though they have different kinds.

just wondering, what would be the recommended for dark brown shoes? i was thinking probably the accessories i need are shoe brush (kiwi?), shoe horn, and cream wax polish.. would that be sufficient?

I find that a slightly longer shoe brush (as compared to those you find in supermarket) is better. I think around 6" or 15cm types.
Don't use too much wax.
Enjoy your hobby.

Should be leather unless otherwise stated. If you have a model in mind you can contact them to ask?
