post #36826 of 87603

Fridays are a home office day for me and I'm usually burdened with multiple conference calls. This allows me hours of uninterrupted shoe care time. I decided to have a go at my new #8 cap toe boots. If there is a model that's crying for a mirror toe, it is the cap toe. Because they are color 8 and have very little contrast, it's hard to capture the shine in an image.

 

Boots are only a week old and looked great with just a good brushing (pics posted above earlier today). I applied a coat of Renovateur to the entire upper, brushed, then applied a few extremely thin coats of Saphir Cordovan wax, followed by more brushing. I finished by buffing. The pictures are a bit deceiving but there is no wax at all past the cap. The wax actually stops just shy of the brogued section.

Your right, in fact the longer the wait the greater it feels to actually get the very thing you have waitedso long for.
