I finally joined the party! I wanted to ask some shoe enthusiasts here, does your shoe repertoire consist of dress shoes of this quality and price range? Personally, I just have one brown brogue tip dress shoe, then this one in black, but before this, I only bought the cheap $30 shoes, which I kept replacing every 6 months or so.
If you use these types of shoes often, how do you avoid damages, scrapes and scratches on them?
The most important thing is that you'll want to use shoe trees - and it just so happens we have great ones on sale now :)
Beyond that, you can go as simple or complex as you want with shoe care products. A bit of polish and conditioner will go a long way, but you can use waxes to raise a high shine like I did in that photo too.
Let's not forget a shoe horn, that's as important as the trees. Maybe that goes without saying, but I've seen a lot of well-made and beautiful vintage shoes that were ruined because the owner didn't use a horn.
Very good point. Please use shoe trees and horn folks. If you must have only one shoe care cream, then I would recommend Saphir Renovateur.
