How to clean leather shoes

socksSeptember 15, 2005

Polishing navy and black shoes goes pretty well, but how about bone, tan and lighter colors? I have a pair which are fairly dirty, and I'd like to clean and polish them. Is there a cleaner for leather which works on lighter colors? Then polish after cleaning?

I use Saddle Soap, it's neutral and cleans any color for me.Then buff to a shine.

I cleaned the shoes with saddle soap then polished with Kiwi neutral shoe polish. They look great! Thanks for the help.

you are welcome socks-- saddle soap will keep the leather nice and soft and it's great for leather purses and even leather furniture.
