How do I take care of pull-up leather?

  1. Question (posted by @clemente21): I just got my first pair of nice leather shoes, the Indianolas from Billy Reid. It's pull-up leather with a calfskin interior. What sort of conditioner should I get for them? Do I need a specific sort of shoe tree? Any general tips?

    Answer (posted by @mrjames): pull up leather will change colour when it bends- and it will react with the oils in your skin causing a colour change- they will age nicely, but drastically. Definitely keep them away from water, and condition them with any leather conditioner. I don't think you'd need anything specific. I'd keep polish away from them: uncoated leather and polish don't mix too well. If you need to restore the colour you have to use special dye designed for pull up leather.
