  Q: How should I protect my leather shoes?

  A: updated (02/02/2012)

The most popular products for protecting and nourishing leather shoes are wax polish and creams. The wax polish is perhaps the most popular product: it has a dual use, in that it can nourish , restore colour and improve the water resistance of the leather. Wax polish is a flammable substance, so it should be stored securely and away from children. Creams and wax can remove light marks and stains from your leather shoes, but are not capable of repairing severe damage to the leather. If you are in a rush, then you may not have time to apply wax or cream to your shoes: in such a situation you can use a shine sponge, which, as the name would suggest, provides shine to your leather, but not long term shoe care.
