Before shining boots, make sure they are clean. Use a shoe brush to remove large bits of dirt, and wipe them with a damp cloth or shoe wipes to remove particulate matter.
Step 1: Apply the polish
Put a quarter-sized drop of shoe polish on a soft cloth, and use a circular motion with light pressure to work it into the leather. Allow it to dry.
Step 2: Buff the boots
With another soft cloth, using a circular motion and medium pressure, remove the dry polish. If the boots do not shine, repeat the process.Learn more about Shoes
