Like many on this forum who have a newly acquired fetish for fine shoes, I find myself purchasing more and more quality shoes. Â So I figure I should learn how to properly take care of them. Â I've read the posts about general care so I know how to condition and shine with a cloth, but on a whim I decided to buy a basic shoe care kit with brushes: Unfortunately, it didn't come with instructions, so I'm asking you all how to use these brushes. Â Are you supposed to apply polish with one brush? Â With water? Â Then let it dry? Â Then buff with the other brush? Â Than polish with the cloth? Â I'm just guessing here... Btw, did I just waste some money on these brushes? Â Are they better than using just a cloth? Finally, what other products should I buy? Â I already have a leather conditioner; should I buy some sole dressing, mink oil, anything else? Thanks in advance.
