I think a good glaze can improve the looks of any shoe immensely. It will impart a mirror finish and in my opinion, looks best when applied to the toe and the rear quarter. How do you get a glaze? Basically you put some wax polish on a damp rag, then keep rubbing the shoe with one finger while adding a few drops of water to the shoe surface...rub until the wax disappears and you have a high shine. It will take a minimum of 30 mins hard work per shoe, if not longer. If you do it right you will see a beautiful depth to the finish, like looking at finely polished wood. Before glazing: After glazing: that looks beautiful! a couple questions: 1. How much wax do you put on the rag? Do you do this only once per shoe during the 30 min? 2. How often during the process do you add water? 3. after the 30 min what do you do, do you use a brush and then buff it w/ a cloth? 4. once a pair of shoes are glazed how often do you need to do this? everytime your shoes need polishing? or just every few months or so?
