i think its recommended to condition shoes. leather drying is is one of the worst things for footwear as it can crack, and you can't fix cracks like you can fix scuffs and scratches.

in your case i think sapphir or oil will do the trick, is the leather smooth or rough like reverse?

Oh and guys use your hands to spread the saphir or oil, assuming no one has allergies. using the a dauber brush not only wastes the conditioner/oil but also sensate always get into certain crevices.

iirc, nicelynice said before that destroyed horse is reversed leather that is waxed and treated?

i'd assume the wax is long gone at this point, how does the leather feel to you? rough or smooth?

if you can post some pics of actual shoes i'll be able to give some ideas. Also shoe care thread will give even better insight just explain to them you don't want a classic polish and this guys are super knowledgeable.

Just picked up some neatsfoot oil on a rec from a friend. Just read online that it potentially loosens stitching and it's not recommended for shoes.


Any opinion on this?

Also ordered some Saphir from Amazon. Thanks for your help, guys.

Best to ask in the shoe care thread, some of the people there are very knowledgable (chemists, cordwainers etc)

loosens stitching? wtf thats not something cleaning/conditioning agents should do. does it melt the thread?

I dunno.

I guess it " eventually weakens stitching" according to this.

I used Collonil leather gel instead after reading similar stuff. I can see no deterioration on some CCP stitching at least with a visual inspection months after use.

For smooth-side shoes, I will use Saphir Renovateur if the shoes are black or brown or Saphir Delicate if the shoes are a lighter color. I'll wipe them down with a lightly damp cloth to remove mud and dirt, apply the conditioner either with my hands or a cloth, wait 5 mins, and then buff with a cloth or brush.

For reverse shoes, including Carpe Reverse calf, I will use suede & nubuck spray - don't try to condition reverse boots with a creme.
