    I have no choice. I'm 99% certain that those who squander Aunt Ruth's moola will find themselves facing down the stern slap of a grizzled old hand from 'the other side' late at night. Few would be so shortsided as to dissapoint her.

    lol, i get kopping to flip. its cool usually. but sometimes it pisses me off. im kinda happy that the people who hoarded shoes they did not need, and took the chance away from others who actually wanted to wear the shoes and get in a great deal, are getting no luck. sorry if that makes me a dick.

    Stitch, just giving you shit. It's cool :cheers: I wear sneakers and hate people who buy with the sole intention to flip and I can't kop.

    I have purchased something that I wanted, decided not to keep, so I attempt to make a few dollars. Most times it just ends up back at the store or on B&S.

    its all good. im probably just being cranky lol. :cheers:

    i get flipping stuff and what not. its hoarders who jump out of no where whenever there is a big sale going on that piss me off. some things are not flippable and then it just screws the people who wanted to buy stuff to keep at a good price.

    Buff with a very soft clean rag or a pair of nylon hose.

    Spray with a little water first.

    edit - see below - now that I see how much water you are using I've changed my recommendation.

    This is what I am doing. And after 30-45 min polishing that is the result you are looking at guys. Any help/tips are welcomed. And i'm using darkbrown wax from C&J.

    Wraping the shoe bag around two fingers.
    Taking a few drops of water on the shoe bag where the wax is coming on.
    Put on a little wax.
    Polish.
    Add a drop of water using my little finger and dipping it in water.
    Polish more.
    Add drop of water.
    Polish more.
    Add a tiny bit of wax.
    Polish.
    And so on...

    Then I finish off the shine with a microfiber glove.
