Just brush them occasionally with a horsehair brush. You may want to keep some alden's wax paste (in color 8) on hand for spot polishing scratches and such. But use sparingly.
Yeah, ditto above info, and just remember that it's not just about appearances (controlling creasing) but more importantly about prolonging the life of the interior of the shoes.

Thanks Tez and Patrick. This thread suddenly became informative again.
Nice suit, and I like the first Aquascutum. Amazing you found another Kiton. I wonder what one does these days w/a double breasted sport coat with peak lapels?

I found these yesterday. $9
Stunning. I'm familiar with the boning technique for shell, but what does 'intended spot' mean? dimpled?
