I notice that you use dubbin on parts of your shoes. I have often wondered about how and why dubbin is used. Can you help me on this one, Ben? With many thanks, Munky.
thank you Munky for your kind words!!!!!
As for the second one i ll try to do my best on that!!
Dubbin is made from animal fats, oils and some waxes! the main reason of why dubbin is used is for making the leather softer,more flexible and nourishes it really deep!! make the creases more smooth and if you use the right shoe trees your shoes ll look like new for long long time!! prevents to some point the leather cracking !One big advantage is that it is waterproofing to a very good level!!
i apply it most of the time with bear fingers(the only shoe product i do this) to have a better feel of how mutch i apply and working it along the creases!!
the only disadvantage of dubbin i have found(if you use it the right way ) is that if you use it for long it is darkening the color of your shoes a little bit!!
