I recently bought a pair of shoes (dark brown calf leather, leather soles) that I intend to use solely for nights out. The idea is that this will give my other shoes a chance to last longer, as they will not suffer from being drenched in alcoholic beverages, etc.
Having said that, I would still like for these shoes to look good for as long as possible, and thus, I now need some advice on how to care for these shoes. For my other shoes I use something called "leather balsam" every now and then, and also this stuff whenever the shoes begin to look a bit scuffed. Is there anything else I can do for shoes that will take some heavy beatings? Maybe some kind of repellent?
