    Hi folks,

    I have a pair of nubuck shoes that I never conditioned because they were cheap, but they got dirty (with tahini, if you must know) and I'm looking to clean them. I've got some nubuck cleaner and a brush and eraser on order, etc, but am thinking once I get the shoe clean that I should condition it.

    My question is: Can I use regular leather conditioner on nubuck shoes? Or is there such thing as nubuck conditioner? If I can just use the regular stuff, I'll slap some Lexol on it...

    Oh, and while I'm asking questions, do people have experience with this Lexol leather "dressing" that claims to condition while not darkening the shoe?

    http://www.amazon.com/Lexol-1415-Nea...dp/B0002FEEQY/

    Just curious. I'd be interested in a run down of all the different Lexol cleaning/conditioning products and their various differences if someone wants to take the time to do that...

    Nopes, there's none. Brush and hope for no major accidents.

    I have a pair of cheap nubuck beaters. Oil tends to stay even with products, but regular stains come out quick with a little wire brush action.
