How I take care of my shoes

from an amzn review:

I have used many different shoe polishes, and this one is far and away the best. If you decide to go with another brand, use a cream instead of a hard wax-like polish, as it will be better for your shoes. If you purchase good leather shoes and take care of them, they should last you years and years (but will need to have new soles put in them on occasion) and they should never look old. Here is how I take care of my shoes:

1. Wash them with a little bit of soap and water, and dry thoroughly
2. Apply some Leather Honey or other leather conditioner with a soft cloth, I use Detailer's Choice Polishing Cloth for this and all other steps requiring a cloth
3. Go do something else for a couple of hours while the leather sucks up the Leather Honey or other leather conditioner
4. Wipe down with a dry cloth, you will now have well-conditioned and clean leather, but unpolished
5. Apply Meltonian Shoe Cream Polish to your shoes using a Shoe Dauber Brush or a cloth
6. Wipe off all excess with a cloth
7. Use a Shine Brush and buff your shoes to a perfect shine; this will not scratch your shoes
8. Wear them proudly, always ensuring that after you take them off you use some Shoe Trees to help dry out the moisture and let them keep their form
