Yet more shoes questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
1) whats the difference between shoe cream and polish? 2) I know i should polish my shoes when i get them, does it matter if i use shoe cream or shoe polish? 3) How does shoe wax that i keep hearing about fit into this whole picture. 4) DO you recommend cleaning shoe brushes and clothes or just buyin new ones? Sorry if i sound so ignorant but i just starting buying decent shoes and i want them to last and i'm not quite sure how to fully take care of them and i can't find the posts the i remember vaguely hearing about this stuff in.

polish and wax are the same thing. they put a protective layer between the elements and the leather. cream is used to nourish and rejuvinate the color of the leather. when you get new shoes, it's a good idea to add a layer or two of polish. but it's not absolutely necessary. cream is not needed unless the leather is particularly dry, eg very old stock. i don't wash my rags, I just throw them away. i use old t-shirts or socks...any rag I can find.
