Anyone got any tips for cleaning, and keeping pristine, white shoes? What is the best stuff to use?

Baby Wipes - cant beat em. :)

Then natural clear leather polish if you want/need to , depends how old your shoes are.

IME, once you start putting 'whitener' on, they start to look crap.

Dubbin, and use it regularly.
White dubbin?
Clear dubbin - muck then just washes off
Cool, clear dubbin (which I've never seen actually) and baby wipes it is then!
Sorry, yes clear dubbin. spend some time with this for the first few weeks and they should stay pristine. Then every time after just wipe clean and re-dubbin them

It will only enhance it if anything, you can get clear polish (kiwi is the best) that will build up your waterproof layer, keep shoes strong and make them easy to clean.

there is a product called nik-wax (can't remember whether this is the right spelling & they do many waterproofing items for shoes, boots & coats etc), it can be normally be found in a tin bottle as a liquid. (forcoats as spay) Its a waterproofing & conditioning agent for dubbing & can be used in advance of the usual dubbing tins. it will help soften leather to make wearing in a shoe or boot much better.

If waterproofing your shoes regularly is an issue, I can highly recommend 'Seal Skinz' Waterproof socks. They fit well, are warm, breathable and waterproof. Not only that but they're great for walking several miles in as well.
