Clean off any dust or dirt with a rag. Use minimal water if needed (unless you went off-roading in the mud, it won't be needed). Take an old medium thickness or thicker wool sock, place your hand in it, buff the shoe in small sections. Buff each section until it heats up. Skip using any products outside of a once a year or once every few years replenishment of the oils.

How long does that "like new" look last?

My experience is that the bloom-like-creases will come back pretty much immediately when the shoes are worn again.

You can help minimize that by doing this after each wearing:

Great chukkas! May I ask where you bought them? The Ravello chukkas you posted some weeks ago also looked fantastic.

Hi guys.  I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet.  20% off Need Supply store wide with GET20 code.  No shell but they have some nice CXL and suede make ups plus Alden care supplies.

Doesn't work on Aldens

I guess it isn't really "store wide" then.  haha
