    I was looking into picking up some Saphir products for some AE's I have on order. Do you guys tend to prefer the polish or cream?

    +1 on Saphir. I believe that there are more oils that are good for the leather in Saphire.
    It nice to be important, but more important to be nice.

    Polish in a can will polish to a higher shine than cream as it has wax (or a good bit more wax) in it. Cream is better for filling in scuffs or rubs, and may condition the leather a bit. But it won't come up to a high polish - there just isn't the wax in it.

    Saphir has always impressed me.

    I like Meltonian shoe cream in all its colors. Widely available in most good shoe stores. More of a soft cream but it applies well and restores color. Perhaps not the hard polish and shine as a harder polish but good stuff...

    Most any old duffer that spent time in the military will tell you Lincoln is the best. Probably a bias of some sort...

    I have mainly used Kiwi since Navy boot camp. Easy to find and have been satisfied with it. I'll have to look for Lincoln, if I see it I may give it a shot.
