Ultimate Indys are Kudu, right? Not a chromexcel leather, right? In both cases I would just put some neutral boot cream on after wiping with a damp cloth and go to town with a horsehair brush. I've never used polish on my brown chromexcel and it looks great. A neutral boot cream and elbow grease are really all you need to bring the color back and raise a shine. I have a completely different routine for shells. Depends on the shell, actually.

Yeah it's horrible. Hope stockists steer clear of the wedge in future make-ups.

Yeah I do all the time. A leather dressing like Montana Pitch-Blend or Pecard's will help waterproof them. Leffot has a useful video about this on their blog from 2009 IIRC.
