Polished my shoes for the first time last night. It's worth noticing that my thrifted florsheim loafers came out looking better than ever. However, my stacy adams hold-me-over-till-i-get-allen-edmonds-for-xmas pieces of crap came out with dark brown streaking all over.
The original color was a dark cognac or a light brown. I used brown kiwi polish. Are the brown streaks due to using too dark a color, the shoe being crap, or inadequate polishing technique?
How do I fix it?
