Anybody have some suggestions for these (but in black)? I've had them a few months and they're among the most comfortable things I've ever worn, but I've been neglecting their care. The leather is very soft and was never shiny, so really just requires some cleaning/protection.

I want to avoid pitching my polish directly in this thread, but on a specific question like this I would have to say that I think my black cream polish would work great for these shoes in black.

Hey quick question...I only have a horsehair applicator brush and not the full/longer shine brush.

I'm pissed cause thought I had one and was about to start polishing some black shoes. Can I use the smaller applicator brush for buffing the whole shoe? I don't plan to use it for applying polish since am using cloth instead.

Not really. You won't be able to get the proper leverage or stroke production with the applicator brush.

I think I've taken the shining as far as I want now. Thanks again to all who provided advice! May I present my efforts:

Great job Gerry. Now you have to practice your cussing for when you scuff the toe against something.

Was it Lear who once wrote that "murder is not an option if someone steps on your toe"?

Thanks all - at least if it gets scuffed, I know how to get it back. Once you achieve the shine, you must let it go - this is the Way Of The Shine a.k.a. Shine-do.

 

Next, I want to work on getting a graduated shine the way Crat has described.

Excellent, Gerry! Kudos.
Yes, shiny like a mirror, awesome like a dragon; the way of the shine-shine-do.

thanks. I was all setup to shine for first time several black shoes I have. And then this happened. So had a few strong beers and went to bed. Bought a Shine Brush today and will revisit the cleaning tonight.

Here is a link to my blog that shows what makes up my shoe shine kit. Missing are the stacks of jars of cream polish.
