    I'm getting ready for my boots, and looking for more of a matte finish than shine. My understanding is that is where Saphir Pommadier Cream Shoe Polish leaves the shoe. Anyone matched that Saphir product to the Burnished Tan Calf?

    I was just going to order it in Neutral, but on the AoC Alden care thread they specifically say not to use a neutral polish. Thoughts?

    Would also be interested in hearing about any experiences with using Aldens Tan Paste Wax - I'm assuming more high-gloss with that...

    (BTW - I did search, but saw only very general information)

    I figured it'll probably never happen from Alden again, and if it does it'll be impossible to get. Enzo Bonafe has #4 shell and a few of us are due to receive a captoe jumper boot it said shell. Speedhooks, 360 welt on Dainite. If you're interested reach out to Skoak and get a MTO going ;-)

    Very fantastic examples of Aldens fine handwork. You should consider getting the 2211 from your favorite retailer.

    Either the 2211 or a tanker are coming and will be my first black shell. Need to decide which..

    Is it a glossy finish?


    Anyone matched the Saphir Pommadier Cream to Alden Burnished Tan?
