Literally... Remove laces. Brush for about 10 seconds each. Clean each shoe with a damp cloth. Clean sole edge with a damp cloth. Brush for 10 seconds to remove any cloth cotton. Use conditioner/cleaner on shoe. Use a brush to remove conditioner/cleaner from any brogue holes. 1 coat of walnut polish... Wait for about 20 minutes as it dries... Add a second coat of walnut polish... Wait another 20 minutes or so... Brush shoe vigourously for like 30 seconds each. Use a toothpick to remove polish from any brogue holes. Brush vigourously again for like 30 seconds. Wipe polish off sole edge if necessary. Use chili sole edge dye on your sole edge. So yeah. The trick is to let the walnut polish dry before your brush shine.
