Once you’ve rubbed down your shoes with a damp cloth, allow to dry. Take a dry cloth and apply the balm lightly to the leather. massaging it into all the nooks and crannies. Watch the leather darken and come back to life with a beautiful earthy shine. When you’re done, the leather will be beautifully soft and supple, with a real organic look and feel. Wipe off any excess and follow up with a waterproofing spray if you intend to wear them in rainy conditions.
