I don't know Jon I really enjoy shinning my boots and shoes? It's becoming a lost art in many places. I cringe a little bit everytime I see someone with nice footwear that are neglected and scratched up.

Prior to shining your shoes, remove the laces. After shining your shoes, use an extra set of thick laces and run them through the eyelets to remove any polish in the eyelets before threading the original laces of the shoes.

Thank you very much, I have been told Saddle Soap can take off the polish though, is this true?

Suggestions for Ryan:
1. Saddle soap.
2. Shoe Trees.
3. Overshoes for incliment weather.
4. Waterproofing (i.e. Mink Oil)
