CLEANING AND SHINING FINE LEATHER BOOTS AND SHOES

1. Wipe them off  with a clean cotton rag and water, removing all dirty spots, dried mud, dust and debris.
2. Wait until they dry.
3. Use a conditioner to moisturize the leather.

4. Buff with a clean rag; you can also brush at this point.

5. Apply whatever combinations of cream and/or wax polishes you prefer. Use colors that are lighter than the leather, if you wish to preserve the antique burnishing. Neutral polish is safe as well, but scuffs may remain visible with neutral polish, which some like as age/patina. Brush and buff with cotton rag between coats of polish.
7. Cover the boots with dust bags, and store them in a cool and dry place.

PS: avoid alcohol or saddle soap – these can be harsh on some leather. Consider using a toothbrush or other small welt brush to clean dirt along the sole edge.

It is really nice to see a celeb carrying such a practical and iconic handbag like The Givenchy Nightingale. It has been around for so long and sometimes but It’s really the perfect everyday bag though. We love the relaxed look combined with the satchel styling. It also comes with a detachable shoulder strap for extra versatility. The price is a bit up there, but you have to look at it like an investment piece. This handbag would surely stand the test to time, especially if you got it in a neutral color like black.
