Just how I do it. I'm open to suggestions.
Well it sounds like your shoes are living the California lifestyle. However, I would not suggest spraying cologne in or around your shoes. First, if someone can smell the cologne from your shoes you have way too much cologne, if they can't smell the cologne whats the point? If you are trying to cover odor use a foot powder. Second, cologne is mostly alcohol which will desolve your shoe polish where it touches it, and will eventually dry out the leather that it contact with over time.
