They look awesome Saz!
Thank you Sir.
Cap Toes are probably the easiest to shine and keep shiny. I too do not like too much polish in the rolls because it will just bloom back out anyway and you will have to wipe or brush it away.
When I do a full shine here are my steps:
1. Saphir Reno or VSC
2. Bordeaux cream
3. Paste wax
Due to the incredibly dense pore structure of cordovan you only need minuscule amounts of these products.
This procedure is only done 3 to 4 times a year maximum. In between, lots of horse hair buffing. And, for the cap toes, an occasional thin layer of wax on the toe only to renew the high shine.
Also, I have a; "Secret Weapon" I use that I will share in this thread at a later time.
Thank you for your information Sir!
