Hello Aries,
       First I used water then a shoebrush to remove dust and mud then kitchen towel paper to remove excess water. Then I used...
Lord Sheraton leather furniture wipes then straight to kiwi neutral polish spit and shine to add a protective layer over the leather focusing mainly on the toecaps. I bulled, buffed & polished using Selvyt cloths..
I added polish when there was any damage incurred at the end the day, it was easy to see the tea core is obvious to see when scuffed or scraped.

As you add polish week after week the finish starts to become murky or cloudy where there is build up. To rectify this I used a small amount of white spirits on a rag to wipe gently the polish away taking care not to remove the surface dye then I hosed them down and dried them. Then I used

Obenauf's leather preservative and left them in a warm place to soak into the leather from Friday night to Sunday morning

Wiped clean with Selvyt cloths and started the process all over again....bit of work for 2.5 years but worth it

I'm not getting any response from Brian at Role Club just wondering if there is any kind soul who could assist translating an email to Japanese so I can use hukurokuju boot repair. After 2.5 years I really want it done right

Huh.  White spirits.  I'm more of a saddle soap kinda gal for shoe polish removal.  Then again, my ladies continue to look well-dressed for lunch... LOL

HP,
   Yes I realise white spirits is usually a no go...but I was very careful to only remove the polish...so it was a quick wipe then a hose down. There was very little colour on the rag.Brian has just got back to me...I'll post the results in a month

Now those are some well cared for boots. Beautiful evolution of the leather. Inspired to give mine done polish.

When I emailed him to provide info on some Canadian-made boots that were pictured on the blog, I was told to email info@mydenimlife.com for English language inquiries.
