So recently I have been trying to shine my AE Soho's up to a very high shine. Specifically like this:



As far as I know it can be done, apparently I have neither the patience nor the skill to manage to do it. Soo I will have someone do it for me
. Any suggestions?

Man those mirror shines are really a pain to maintain. I used to do spit-shines like this for ROTC and it's both a lot of work and a lot of stress while you're wearing them. One misstep and you're spending the rest of the day feeling a little bit sick.

I don't know of any great cobblers in the area - in fact the only cobbler I know of is that guy in the basement of the Cambridgeside Galleria. If you find a good one, make sure to post his info here.

There are two very good cobblers in Cambridge. Felix Shoe Repair in Harvard Square and Cambridge Instant Shoe Repair, just out side of the Square. I have done business with both and highly recommend them but to get a shine like that, you'd have to do it yourself. Good luck!
