Shoe care doesn’t have to be intense or take a long time. More often than not, like any kind of routine, if we simply start a regular schedule of upkeep it can take you less than 10 minutes per session. And that is because not every single time do you have to give the shoes a deep clean and/or strip down and rebuild. Often you can simply give it a little brush down and top up the shine with a little wax and water (or even spit if you fancy).
Here I show you a quick video of how simple shoe care can be. And I was not trying to make the best shoe shine in the world or the deepest shoe care regimen but literally a 10-minute spruce up to be presentable that day. And 10 quick minutes is all it really takes.
Most people might perceive the shine being the only thing that needs real focusing but to me, the most important is tidying the sole edging. Nothing screams unkempt like a chewed and faded sole edge. Even skipping the wax altogether and just doing the cream brushing on the welt edge and shoe would be sufficient as the base for proper presentation. But a little wax shine never hurts 😉
I hope that you enjoy this quick tutorial and stay tuned for more.
