I've started my first job in which I actually get to wear nice dress shoes on a regular basis, but embarassingly enough, I'm realizing that I'm surprisingly poorly versed in shoe maintainance. With my cheaper pairs before, I'd just brush a little bit and polish, but I have a feeling that I should be putting more effort into this. I've seen a whole lot of different shoe care products out there, but with my highly limited budget I'd like to know what the actual essentials are (and what would just be wasting money). Beyond the usual polishing, my concerns are smoothing out creases, keeping the leather supple and preventing it from drying out, and treating scuffs. Again I'd like to keep this at a minimal price, but what should I be buying?
