Some winters over here, when the snow in the morning is up past your ankles or even worse, then wellies or hiking boots with a thick Vibram sole are the only alternative. One's shoes with nice leather soles should be carried in a bag and put on when one gets to the office. Won't have to worry about this problem in a couple of years, Wraith, or will I? Considering climate change. Cheers

Well, we're not talking litres of the stuff. Just a few drops. It emulsifies into the polish in some way. Compare it with spit-polishing - a time-tried method for obtaining a shine.

Thanks. The Macquaries haven't been out in the wild yet. I've conditioned them and am now going to polish them up with RM's polish goo. Cheers

After a couple of polishes they now have a deeper, more subtle, shine. They look absolutely...
