The advent of warmer, sunnier, weather is when lighter color shoes come into their own. And when the tan comes out of storage, the first thing that should happen to it is a shine, with cream polish rather than wax.
Cream polish does not give quite the shine of wax, but it restores moisture to leather that may have sat in a closet for half a year. And remember that the polish should be lighter in color than the shoes to keep them from darkening over time.
It is time for tan shoes.
