Hi guys, So I had a pair of shoes that I bought while I was on vacation in NZ. They were a light tan-brown, though when I got home the humidity had made them a much darker brown. So I decided to test out my Saphir Pommadier in Red, and Saphir Wax in neutral. What I did was applied the pommadier and left it while I applied to the other shoe. Then once the other shoe was done, I switched back and brushed off all the access pommadier. Then I brushed off the other shoe. Once both shoes were brushed off, I applied the wax, at first it was making the shoe eggshell shinny (much more shinny then it's original shine, but a slight bit smoother as well). After a while (1 hour) I started getting the hang of it, and I built up more and more polish layers, till the shoes were so shinny it looked like patent leather (and my fingers and shoulder ached). This is when I started getting worried, because I remember someone writing that a shoe can be over polish, and can crack the leather..... Did I do something wrong, are my shoes going to be ok? Sorry if this was a stupid question, but any advice would be helpful. Also, after walking out onto my terrace I noticed that some of the pommadier was dried up near the sole on the inside of one of my shoes, and it was all gritty and sandy, so I quickly brushed it away, wasn't sure how I missed it, but once brushed away the shoe was shinny and fine. Anyway, they look nice, and I can see my face in them!! If nothing else, here's a picture of the shoes for your troubles: Thanks guys!
