last night I stripped the glossy finish off my black CT Chelseas (it was easier than I had anticipated, and the shoes look worlds better already, pics forthcoming). What should I do next? I figure that some leather conditioner would be good, as the acetone probably dried the hell out of the leather, but do I then go straight on to polish and wax, or should I do some other treatment? I'm wondering if maybe I should include some kind of water-proofing step somewhere, as the de-finished uppers are now essentially raw leather... any ideas?
