An old, clean sock, moistened with a little water to wipe it down, and then pat it dry with a towel. Hopefully the towel is also clean.

So no product at all? I'm talking about light scuffs and scratches, not dirt.

1. Wipe down with a moist cloth.
2. Clean with either saphir Renovator or possibly an oil, I ise beeswax oil and it conditions my boot as well.
3. Brush with horse hair brush

Check with the guys in the shoe care thread. Leather is leather. Ccp doesn't recommend creams just FYI, guidi I would treat like any other leather. I'd guess my ma+ are guidi leather and I use damp cloth then some saphir.

It depends on the look you want the boot to have

 

some people prefer a beaten up look so they just use a cloth and no polish or whatever

 

there is something called neats foot oil which is possibly the best thing you can buy for your shoe/ boot

 

it softens the leather, restore the natural oils and does not change the color.
it is taken from the leg joint of a young(neat) calf.

Is it difficult to find a pair of 2014 FW (or prior) dual zips now?

I kinda prefer the thick zipper pulls on those (like the spiral zips I had before) than current thinner ones.

LOL!

Hope it's not any SF member sale but those are pretty hideous IMO.

"hideous" is exaggerating but I feel those would be a lot cooler if they were one piece

What would you recommend for washed horse nubuck? Just wipe with a damp cloth and spray with suede protector?

Asking because I just bought these L&F derbies. I have a pair of boots in the same leather and I ended up using black shoe cream on them because of a stain. I actually really like the result but I think I'll try to keep the derbies as is for variety.

I would use a spray mink oil. http://www.amazon.com/Angelus-Mink-Oil-Spray/dp/B00HUGBUKQ

Actually neatsfoot oil is very known for darkening leather. However non-darkening options exist, i've heard. 

And there is a myth about neatsfoot oil rottening stitching. I have no experiences with it but just wanted to pass on the information :)
