Who uses saddle soap?
I think shoes can do with being cleaned of old grease and wax every now and then, and then re-greased.
Who does something like this with his shoes and with what product?

Use of saddle soap like any other leather care products depends on the type of leather. Saddle soap is most effective as the name suggests on naked veg tanned saddle, most shoes these days have colour coating etc which does not require use of saddle soap to clean. Soaking a pair of shoes in soap and water may also destroy the coating in many ways.

Fiebings, saddle soap. Get the white colored as the yellow can stain lighter colors. Lather up the soap with water and a horsehair brush, brush the boots thoroughly and then whipe off grime . I see alot of people saying to let it soak in but i wouldnt recoment it, it is soap after all and will dry and clog the leather in the long run. Depending on how dirty or oiled the leather a second pass and a rinse with just water may be necessary. Afterwards allow, to air dry away from direct heat or sunlight and then condition and or polish to your liking.

Anyone tried the SJC Ammo Boot? I see they're on sale currently, and the brown ones are very tempting. I like the black too, but I have too many black boots to be able to justify more...

They do, the construction quality,m really surprised me at their price level, really dense stitch count on the welt. Their Brass boot in crimson looks like a real good option for a dressier moc. Cool, what sole you got on the Trickers, double oak or the dainite?
