The Art of Shining Shoes: An Illustrated Guide

All you need is a soft cloth, a can of shoe polish, and good shoe brush.  Remove any dirt/mud/salt with brush or damp rag. Wait until dry.  Rub a moist cloth in the polish to acquire a small amount on the cloth.  Apply the polish in small circles, in small amounts.  Grab your shoe brush and brush the entire shoe vigorously.  Breathe “hot air” onto the shoe as if trying to fog a mirror on parts you want a really nice shine.
