Dark Cognac Enzo Bonafé Balways
One of our more frequently asked questions is: "What color polish do I need for my cognac footwear?"
Well...it depends, as the industry isn’t perfectly consistent with name = color. Is it cognac or dark cognac, shell cordovan or calfskin, which tannery, UV faded, museum, burnished, etc.?
Above is an example of David "DEShellvedge" where he uses a combination of Pure Polish Neutral Cream as a light cleaner and conditioner to smooth & condition the under layers, followed by a mix of Brown & Walnut Water Resistant Cream and lots of buffing to bring out the glow on these gorgeous Enzo Bonafe boots.
We recommend you look at the color of the leather or shell itself, followed by colors of polish available, and select a tone that matches as nearly as possible. Polish is not dye, so it won’t permanently change it, if you’re slightly off. Err on the side of lighter, if you can’t find an exact match.
