I recently bought a pair of Kurt Geiger kerland boots. Well made up, loving them. The problem is, I have always worn canvas / skate shoes my whole life. As crazy as it sounds, ive never had to 'look after' leather shoes or boots.
Could someone give me a few pointers? They are a matt and aged type of finish so im assuming a tin of the old kiwi wax and a brush isnt what im after? Also, im likely to be buying a couple more pairs of leather footwear in the coming weeks so any care tips on suede and any other type of special finishes is greatly appreciated.
Oh, another stupid question - is rain likely to damage the boots in any way? Do you have to apply some kind of water protection before jumping in puddles? (ok, not jumping, but the pavements here catch you out from time to time.)
