I polished a pair of shoes this past Sunday morning using Kiwi Shoe wax (Brown and Cordovan). After applying the wax, I let the shoes stand for about 20 minutes, went over them with a horsehair brush, followed by a final buffing with cotton flannel. Before putting them on this morning, I ran a horsehair brush over them, again. I noticed however, that towards the end of the day, after having worn them, when I run my finger along the leather, I get a dry, shoe polish residue on my finger (fairly significant amounts). I've noticed this along the inside of the cuff of on some of my lighter colored suits, as well. Any suggestions on how to prevent this; is it preventable; anyone noticed this with other brands?; I suppose shoe creams do not pose this problem?
