1st : Universal Shoe Polish Cream this one is from Saphir but you can find from other brand (like Grison). Just a very few, the saphir is good because it doesn't leave white traces.
2nd :Shoe Polish creme Surfine this one is from Grison - saphir is good also, just depend on the colour you want to use - I have at least 4 different brown for this pair of shoes and I alternate them on every polishing session that will give the natural patina. I use an old (soft) toothbrush to apply (the best way to go in every corner specially with brogue) and again I use just very few product.
3rd : Shoe Polish Pate De Luxe from Saphir. For this step I only use Saphir it's the best for me it's an extra shine formula based on beeswax, carnauba wax and turpentine without silicone. I put this only on the toe to make the extra shine with just few drips of water.
As tools you need:
2 brush - the fist one is quiet hard boar-bristle brush to take all the dust off.- the second one is soft natural horsehair brush to make the shine.
One old toothbrush is even better than the dedicated spreading brushes you can find.
Some soft cotton polishing cloth. The best you can have is an old Egyptian cotton sheet.
