    I was just wondering if the same steps for shoe care apply to leathers that haven't been finished the same way as dress shoes. i.e. Should I still wax? Do I need to condition?

    Is there a product that protects from the rain/elements that doesn't darken the leather? I guess wax does that, but it'd be nice to have the option to not make the shoes shiny. Any specific product recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    For example, if you buy some casual leather boots for the winter (may come in contact with rain, snow), what would you treat it with out of the box? How would you maintain the leather?
