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...
Yes, I just polished one of them, just for laughs. Thanks to my lady for being a good sport.
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.

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.
