I am sure there are many threads on this subject however I wanted to make a new one so it was tailored to my needs. I am a finance student and have a few pairs of "ok" shoes to the standards of this forum haha. Obviously I do not have a lot to spend on shoes at the moment. I am also starting a paid internship this summer so I would like to fix up what I do own. Just today I actually purchased a pair of Paul Evans Martin wholecut in marrone.
The shoes I have are black johnston murphy wing tips, black johnston murphy melton cap toe which I actually purchased on Ebay for about $60. A brown pair of Aldos and the grey/blueish pair are Steve madden.
I want to know what a quality brush/shoe kit would be that is not too expensive as well as polish and other shoe care items I can get that you guys recommend. I know Saphir is popular but not sure on the best place to purchase or colors to get (besides black).
From the pictures the problems I have are the Melton cap toes have some scuffs I would like to get out if possible and hopefully prevent in the future. It upsets me that they scuff so easily.
The brown aldos I actually used to wear a lot when I went out and spilled certain beverages on them and now they are stained. If there is a way to fix these up please let me know. The top part is suede.
For the grey shoes I think they are some sort of denim material and suede.
Thanks for any help!
