    Allen Edmonds Strand polishing



    Howdy everybody,


    I bought a gently used pair of AE Strands on eBay for $130 a couple weeks ago. Except for the sole they looked brand new. Since I've actually been wearing them and not letting them collect dust on my closet, I need to polish them.


    I was wondering if anyone on here had a pair of Strands (or any other AE walnut shoe) and what do you do to polish them? I was thinking of just using cream instead of wax, because I want them to have that natural look, but if someone here uses wax and loves it I may just give it a try.


    Thanks in advance for any tips

    I have a pair, but haven't polished them yet. Have held up really well, but only 2 months old. Typically I just use cream on my shoes.

      For reference, in case anyone wonders this in the future, I cleaned them with Lexol cleaner and conditioned them with Lexol conditioner. After that I used Meltonian creme in English Tan and it matches the Walnut color of the Strand perfectly. I'm still on the fence about whether or not I want to use wax in the future. If I do it will be Meltonian wax in English Tan.


      If someone else would like to give the wax a try, feel free. Post the results!!


      Side note: Lexol cleaner dries out the leather pretty good, and not necessary for every polish. Make sure you DON'T let your shoes sit for a day by mistake after you clean them (without conditioning or polishing), just to be safe.

        From what I've read, if you want to protect your shoes from water, you must use wax. If you want them to look natural (which I'm guessing means not too shiny) just use neutral polish instead of colored, and don't buff it out to a high shine.

        If you dig around Style Forum you will see several disagreements and several *very in depth* descriptions of people's processes.

          I use AE's premium polish in Walnut on my Fifth Avenues (this after playing around with the creme/polish/wax routine). It's much easier and gets beautiful results.
