If fact, yes. Just received Tartan Green and Light Grey. Very exciting, I know. If any additional requests, let me know. We still have some things yet to ship.

I trust that they'll feel fantastic. You'd be surprised how these things disappear on your feet. Socks are meant to be very light weight - providing a nice barrier between foot and shoe without getting in the way.

Thanks for posting!

We've got some lambs hair brushes on the way... not from Japan, but certainly good enough to do the trick. And you'll actually be able to get your hand on these. Stay tuned...

Wow I don't even have a speech prepared! This is such a shock, I'd like to thank styleforum, the hanger project. Sir booth, Glen, Kirby, red devil (I need to meet you kind sir)! And most of all my fiancée, for letting me do this pair INSIDE the house! Ain't she sweet?

Aaaaaaand...we're back!

 

Today I'm adding a little depth to a brand new pair of shoes.  Give us all some insight into your polishing habits by posting photographs here today of you shining/polishing your shoes (before and after shots, please).  

 

One (1) randomly chosen participant in today's thread will receive three (3) Luxury Wooden Suit Hangers!  In addition, we also want to interact with all of you on social media, so cross-post to InstagramTwitterFacebook or Tumblr (using the hashtag #shoeshinesunday) — some exciting things are coming for those of you who do!

 

Without further ado, let's get to it...

 

Today, I'm looking after a new of Carminas that, in my opinion, just need a bit of finish depth.

 

Flat

 

 

My set up includes: (Click to show)

 

As always, I first brushed the Carminas with a large horsehair shoe polishing brush to remove any dirt and other surface adulterants — even though they are brand new.  I then applied a very thin, light layer of Saphir Pommadier Cream Polish in light brown (one shade lighter than the shoe color) in order to even everything out — then I brushed the shoes again after allowing the Pommadier to dry.

 

"A hair in the head is worth two in the brush."

 

 

Then, I began to apply very thin, light layers of Saphir Medaille d'Or Pate de Luxe Glaçage Polish all over the shoes with a cotton pad, interspersed with light dabs of my water/alcohol mixture.  I worked in a couple of layers of dark green wax all over the shoe, making sure to work the wax until a slight mirror effect was created.

 

"'The time has come,' the walrus said, 'to talk of many things: of shoes and ships - and sealing wax - of cabbages and kings.'"

 

 

I continued that process with more Saphir Medaille d'Or Pate de Luxe Glaçage Polish, but this time in havana brown — again, using the water/alcohol mixture sparingly.  

 

"You cannot put the same shoe on every foot."

 

 

The last step was one more light application of dark green Saphir Medaille d'Or Pate de Luxe Glaçage Polish...and...

 

 

"A shoe has so much more to offer than just to walk."

 

 

That's it for today, as once again it's time for brunch and a [few] cocktail[s].

 

Remember to post photographs here today of you shining/polishing your shoes (again - before and after, please) to qualify for our drawing for  three (3) Luxury Wooden Suit Hangers!  Keep the win rolling by also cross-posting your photos on InstagramTwitterFacebook or Tumblr (using the hashtag #shoeshinesunday) — good things may come to those who do!

 

I'll be checking back in on this thread throughout the day, so feel free to include any questions you might have along with your posts — who knows, the answer(s) may even be the subject of a future Shoe Shine Sunday!

Burgundy shell boots needed a little TLC.

Anyone use the cotton rounds cleaning pads to apply polish?

I tried, but I like the daubers better. The cotton rounds leave tiny strands of cotton on the shoe. 

I have used them for Renomat, though.

Use the smoother side or use a bit of water to tame the strands.

Thanks, do you have a pic of your shoe polish box? Looks like a wood tool or tackle box.

Was cleaning yesterday and found my Meermin Museum calfs that I forgot about. shog[1].gif

Leather seemed a bit dull so I decided to try out the High - Shine Glass Water Dispenser from the Hanger Project today. In short, the results were pretty incredible given effort put in. I'm usually not a fan of mirror shines so it's usually two coats of wax and maybe one with a drop of water. Much easier with the dispenser as all you do is dab the cotton ball on it and you get the perfect amount of water.

Before:

Used a horsehair brush, cotton balls, saphir pate de luxe neutral and the water dispenser:


With some wax on:



After a few coats:


Final product, couldn't really capture well on camera for some reason so added instagram photo with filter as well

I normally use an old cotton undershirt but will try the cotton pads. Where do you guys get those little water bottles?
