Care/quality of lambskin shoes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Most of the posts I have seen seem to be about calfskin shoes... what do you guys think about lambskin, and is care similar for lambskin as it is for calfskin? My primary "business" shoes are a black pair and brown pair of Bally lambskin laceups, which are the most comfortable laceups I've ever worn... Any ideas on how to shine these? Is cream or polish better?

Drizz - are they 'natural' leather, ie without a heavy opaque covering? If so I would suggest the tack shop over the shoe shop. I use Lexol saddle soap on my natural leather stuff and their leather conditioner after they dry. Started using it on tack years ago and it kept saddle/bridle leather clean, supple and protected... looking new. ...given the PH and salinity of horse sweat that is no simple task. The above may darken them slightly (temporarily) but I like that natural leather look.

I am fairly certain they are natural leather, so lambskin should be treated with saddle soap etc... as opposed to calfskin products?
