Your morning routine is an essential part of your strict fitness and discipline standards. You wake early for sword drills, and before the sun is fully over the horizon you are eating breakfast and washing up for the day.
You secure your Godfrey Shoes over your medieval hose (they’re all the rage this century!), tightening the sturdy black strips of leather through brass buckles. You stand tall in the height of fashion; none shall doubt your ability as the good knight you truly are.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
