I apply a little bit of wax to the shoe with a cloth, then dip the same cloth in a tiny amount of water. Add a bit more wax and rub to the now wet cloth onto the shoe. I use another cloth to get most of the polish off. Then I use the saphir buffing cloth to bring out the deep shine. Finally, I get some nylon pantyhose and give it a good once over. 

 

Saphir products are amazing.

 

I use nylon pantyhose for the final buffing when I make dorodango. I had been wondering if it would work just as well when polishing leather. Thank you for answering this unasked question of mine :)

Can anyone comment on the feasibility of painting the red sole of the black eagle county boot? Its a lovely boot and being offered dirt cheap on discount. I feel a strong paint should be able to cover the color on the sides of the sole. Either that, or I could send it through the $125 AE resoling option, or have it resoled locally?

I keep shoes In a closet but keep the empty boxes... Always on the fence on getting rid of the boxes since they just take up space. However, I'm moving soon and the boxes do make it more convenient.

Very nice, David.  I like those.  Are you going to keep the red laces?

I would tell you, but I don't want to be accused of insider trading.  You can get the answer to your question if you e-mail Brett, the shoe manager at Nordstrom.

Realized I hadn't treated my walnut shell Daltons since Oct last year.  They're just over a year old but amazing how little care they require to look decent.  I'm not one for a high shine so most of my boots only see Reno or Venetian Cream. 

 

SFTG is an oracle on anything shoes/boots, but liking the Daltons is subjective (as he said). Daltons (and the 1-last) are one of my favorites.

 

The first picture is closer to the color IRL.
