    I have a pair of Vivobarefoot Ra's (leather not canvas) which I've had about a week and am wearing to work - they look fine with formal dress. On the Vivo site it suggests using NuBuck cleaner to clean them but most cleaners of this sort seem designed for a rough surface rather than the smooth surface on the Ra's. Has anyone got experience of cleaning these shoes - mine are black so Ideally I'd like to use a black shoe cream or similar to give the leather some nourishment and protection

    Thanks

    Is that in black or just neutral?

    Black for black shoes. Sometimes neutral colors will remove or lighten the leather dye.
