Some Reno, a thin layer of wax, and some vigorous brushing?
This is going to sound counter-intuitive ... but listen: just let go. Don't do anything special - let them dry normally and brush after they are dry. Just polish as normal on your regular routine. Don't lather on reno/lexol. The shoes will be fine. They won't disintegrate.

That is counterintuitive! I ask because this has happened before with the rain and there is some spotting, albeit faded...

Also, I wasn't planning on slathering on Reno, haha.

I wish I could shine a pair of shoes like that... My mirror shine never works. If anything my shoes look dull whenever I attempt it.

On vintage buck it can be too violent but works well on nubuck.

X post from streetwear forum: Any leather expert can tell me what are the black spots on my boots? I hope they are not molds... I clearly remember mink oiling them before I've stored them for like 6 months..... And how do I get rid of em if they are molds?? I've tried leather cleaner but to no avail. Please help, thanks!

Leather Therapy will get rid of mold, but I am not sure about using it on shoes... might want to give them a call/e-mail.

Does anyone have experience with the Collonil 1909 series? Specifically, I'm referring to either the leather cream or leather lotion:

http://www.collonil.com/en/shop-und-...her-cream.html
http://www.collonil.com/en/shop-und-...er-lotion.html

They both appear to be variations on leather conditioners.

I also read some references above to other Collonil products you guys use, but couldn't figure out exactly which one. Was it the rustical classic? Is this also a type of leather conditioner?
