Any reason to use leather condition on shell cordovan shoes?

I just got my first pair of shell cordovan shoes. I have some Allen Edmonds conditioner/cleaner - is there any reason to apply this to the shoes if I don't specifically need to clean it before polishing?

Should I brush the shoes, or buff with a cloth, after every wearing?

I've never used conditioner on my shells, only wax. They seem to be doing fine without it, and some are a decade or so old.
