Ok i can't find any of the old posts on proper shoe care and i just want to make sure i'm diong it right, another post sparked my question. here is how i usually care for my shoes, any recommendation? 1) Always let them air out for 10-20 minutes when i take the off then shoe trees are always put in then the laces are tied and put in shoe bags. 2) When polishing i use a wet towel and wipe them down. let them air dry. I then apply a shoe cream, buff with felt then horse hair brush. Then i apply wax and buff with felt and then horse hair brush. My only thought is should i be using a cleaner/conditioner? Would this help keep the leather in better shape? I am under the impression that cream moisterizes the leather and wax will dry it out? how can i keep the leather soft and in good shape?
