My Ricards were pretty banged up after my trip to Europe, so I conditioned and polished them with Lexol and Kiwi last night. This is my only pair of top-quality black shoes, and I could tell the difference afterward - all of the scuffs were gone, while my Cole Haan loafers don't like quite as good after the same treatment.
Anyway, do you guys have any suggestions to improve my polishing routine? Here's what I did:
-Wiped shoes with wet paper towel, then wiped dry with another paper towel
-Applied Lexol using old t-shirt, then wiped with a paper towel
-Applied Kiwi using old t-shirt, then brushed with a horsehair brush
-Applied another coat of Lexol, then brushed with same horsehair brush
I would've tried a water shine afterward, but I didn't have any spare nylon cloth.
