How to Polish Leather Shoes
Nothing makes as bold of a sartorial flourish as a pair of polished leather shoes. The gleaming shine of freshly polished shoes naturally catches the eye and accentuates the curves and details of your favorite pair of leather shoes. You can’t help but feel like “a billion bucks.”
In addition to its aesthetic appeal, polishing your shoes regularly protects your shoes from the elements and increases the lifespan of your shoes. Here at FootFitter, we love ourselves a nice mirror shine, which is why we’d like to show you how to polish your leather shoes.
