    Pressure you mean press hard while I wax, because I don't? I don't know what I am doing wrong. Followed every step here, little wax, little water. And the result is that.
    Thanks for the info. I had a black shine on these before that my friend did for me without any problem. Now i'm trying the darkbrown for myself. But will let them rest today and try out tomorrow with the tip you gave me and see how it will be :)

    From the first I used this on all the shoe:
    - Saphir Renomat
    - Saphir cream - medium brown
    - Saphir Renovateur

    Let them dry for a day then I started the polish with darkbrown wax from C&J.

    No. I´m neither old or eccentric enough to pull those off. These are Gdots territory :nodding:



    Not implying Gdot is old and eccentric

    Have you tried forgoing water for now? A little renovatur will leave a nice luster on it's own. Im sure a modest amount of saphir polish will render a shine once brushed and buffed.

    The Gables look better in a dark colorway. And maybe the Frankenstitch design is as well..
