Since it’s the guys who typically get the traditional shoe shine, and if your guy doesn’t, then it’s time he did, because nothing can take down a great look more quickly than shabby shoes. I’ve actually had some of my black leather pumps and my boots professionally shined at those great kiosks at the airport and it makes such a difference.
But if you’re not passing through airports on a fairly frequent basis, then this tutorial will help you learn how to manage a top-notch shoe shine at home. It’s quite simple and takes just a bit of elbow grease. Well worth it for the ‘well-polished’ look!
