Agreed. It maybe a bit in doing that. But I don’t believe it’s making any difference in improvement of maintenanceThe deer bone thing is an online myth that started with an ASW video back in something like 2012. Years later, I asked Kelani, the woman in the video, about it and she said she doesn't use deer bones on shoes. Or even recommends using it. She was asked to "demonstrate" the technique in the video because Will was selling deer bones in his store.
At best, rubbing a deer bone on your shoes does nothing. At worst, the uneven surface on the bone will mar the surface of the leather.
A couple of West End bespoke shoemakers have told me that deer bones are only used for waxed calf riding boots. It's doubtful anyone here would ever have such a pair of shoes.
The whole deer bone thing is the iGent version of denim guys going out into the salty ocean to wash their jeans and then rolling around in the sand for fades.
