Thanks! Well I first applied 3 layers of shoe cream using small circular motions with a damp cotton cloth, switching shoe between every layer. Use more water if needed. This takes around 30 min per shoe. After this is done the shoes should look nice and shiny. Then switch to a shoe polish and apply using the same technique 1-2 more layers. Use more water on these last layers and focus on parts that are visible when wearing the shoes. After using the polish you should...
My first pair of good quality dress shoes (sorry for the laces showing)! Fits like a glove ;) First polish took a while but I'm pretty pleased with the result.     
Thanks!
