    I've been reading up on how to get my worn out kicks into shape, but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the saddle soaps, cremes, waxes, polishes, leather lotions and other potions. Can someone outline the steps to take, or point me toward a reputable website/particularly helpful SF thread explaining it all? Also, brand recommendations for the needed products would be much appreciated. I tried searching the forums for pertinent threads, but the Results page for searches such as "shoe" "care" "polish" and "maintenance" look an awful lot like the unfiltered index page.

    Thanks all!

    1) clean them
    2) polish them
    3) keep shoetrees in them
    4) repeat as necessary
