I admit, I am a bit sloppy when it comes to cleaning my shoes. If they are dusty, I just rinse them under water and put them in the sun to dry. And in case they are muddy, I simply brush them down with soap and water. I don't bother much with applying any leather or canvas protection products. Preserving my shoes, isn't exactly on my high priority list. I simply buy new ones when the old ones are worn out. What kind of relationship do you have with your shoes?
