If your shoes are looking a bit dull and lacking that sparkle, and you’re not sure how to restore them back to their original beauty, let us show you what can make your leather shoes shine once again. The best way to do this is to grab the following items: good quality shoe brush, leather shoe polish, and a soft cloth.
Steps to make your leather shoes shine:
- First, you will want to use the shoe brush to remove any debris on the surface, then apply a small amount of shoe polish onto the cloth and apply the polish gently to the leather in small circles.
- Then grab your brush again and remove any excess polish from the shoe.
- Finally, take your cloth and buff the rest of the leather; and that’s how to polish your shoes to a mirror shine!
