Shoe Care

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I ran a search, and didn't turn up much on this site. Can Anyone direct me to a website that describes the proper way to clean and polish dress shoes. Thanks...

Here's a pretty good place to start.   http://www.angelusshoepolish.com/hints.html

I currently own 2 pairs on Johnston and Murphy shoes and have been using the Angelus method of shoe care for about 6 months now. Rather than heating the wax with a match I used an 1800 degree micro blowtorch. The match tended to carbonize the wax on the shoe (if that is even possible). I picked this tip up from a shoe shine pro in an airport I frequent. I have just purchased some Grensons from benniesshoes.com as well as some C&J Handgrade Aintrees from PLAL and cannot bring myself to using the blowtorch method going forward. With that, I have been aggressively searching Google for improved shine techniques. Military Spit Shine: http://usmilitary.about.com/cs/gener.../spitshine.htm Another Spit Shine: http://www.calguard.ca.gov/casmr/spitshine.htm Note - I only follow steps 4 onward on the 2nd link. I like the idea of using a hairdryer which adds moderate but not overwhelming heat to the wax. Regards, CT
