    Hey Guys!

    I am sure there are many threads on this subject however I wanted to make a new one so it was tailored to my needs. I am a finance student and have a few pairs of "ok" shoes to the standards of this forum haha. Obviously I do not have a lot to spend on shoes at the moment. I am also starting a paid internship this summer so I would like to fix up what I do own. Just today I actually purchased a pair of Paul Evans Martin wholecut in marrone.
    The shoes I have are black johnston murphy wing tips, black johnston murphy melton cap toe which I actually purchased on Ebay for about $60. A brown pair of Aldos and the grey/blueish pair are Steve madden.

    I want to know what a quality brush/shoe kit would be that is not too expensive as well as polish and other shoe care items I can get that you guys recommend. I know Saphir is popular but not sure on the best place to purchase or colors to get (besides black).
    From the pictures the problems I have are the Melton cap toes have some scuffs I would like to get out if possible and hopefully prevent in the future. It upsets me that they scuff so easily.
    The brown aldos I actually used to wear a lot when I went out and spilled certain beverages on them and now they are stained. If there is a way to fix these up please let me know. The top part is suede.
    For the grey shoes I think they are some sort of denim material and suede.

    Thanks for any help!

    You're obviously free to start your own thread, but many of your questions HAVE already been asked and answered (1209 pages worth) on the **The Official Shoe Care Thread: Tutorials, Photos, etc.**. I would suggest posting there or, perhaps even better, simply reading through the pages of already provided information.
