    My girlfriend has these beat up boots that she loves so much, but I couldn't stand looking at them in their condition anymore. I had to do something about them. A little Saphir'l do ya well... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Yes, I just polished one of them, just for laughs. Thanks to my lady for being a good sport. [​IMG] Oh yeah, I charged her $22 for a new jar of Renovateur too.

    She's off the hook for the other because Saturday is her birthday.

    I told her not to wear them in the blizzard, but well yeah you see the other boot. She's not going to listen.

    Agreed. He could have bought those boots at the Salvation Army for $4.

    Haha!

    I will get a leg in boot pic at some point! don't fret. I basically used a lot of reno with a welt brush to get the crud out of the welt, let it dry then brushed it up. I then put some reno over the whole shoe, tongue included, with laces removed and put reno on the laces as well. I then applied some Saphir black cream polish in small circles, let dry, buffed. I then went back over them with the reno, let dry, buffed, and then finally saphir black wax, let dry and brush. I did also use edge dressing on the edges of the soles and welts.

    You are a good man. My girl has no idea of my intentions for her shoe collection once she becomes my wife.
