Conditioning Your Shoe

Conditioning your shoe with cream provides much-needed nourishment to the leather. Over time, the leather dries up, and the cream helps it to recover. It also brings the original color of the shoe before waxing. Conditioning your shoe often (depending on how it’s worn usually) will go a long way to maintaining the leather. It is also essential to know that regardless of how often a shoe is worn, the leather must be nourished to prevent it from breaking, often caused by dryness. Subsequently, whether it’s worn or not, it must be conditioned as follows:

  • With a clean, lint-free cloth, gently dust your shoes;
  • Apply the cream with your selvyt cloth wrapped around a finger or two;
  • Apply evenly and thoroughly;
  • Allow it to dry, and
  • Buff it with a horsehair shoe brush.
