How should I clean and polish Alden Cigar Shell chukkas and indys? Alden recommends just wiping with a damp cloth, is this enough to nourish leather? I know they advise against neutral polish and cream polish in general. Any firsthand experience?

Alden's recommended method really works. I've followed it for years with lots of success.
