When one polishes shoes what is the most proper way to do it? I have several pairs of high end shoes which when polished do not really achieve the effects I want. The shoes I have are not of the type that have the glossy sheen. For example the shine is of more like the Gucci bit loafers if you know what I mean. Also for leather soles should one polish them as well or what? I find that some of them get quite dry, and crack in a sense. Thank you.
