- 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.
