How to polish a black boots to shiny!


To polish this boots, we need a cotton cloth, black and white shoe polish(recommend as kiwi brand) first, add some water ,then dip some black polish as I don’t have the ordinary white polish, I use the white parade gloss one, but both is ok also. and keep polish in circles I turned on the flashlight just because to make it clear you can see now that there were some circles on the surface and we can’t have this, so we need to continue polish in order to remove them. so there is not much black polish left on the cloth and the shoe so now we dip the white polish then polish like circles again actually white polish is optional, so you can use or don’t use. I used this boots for 3 years,so there is difference with the new ones, so in order to lower the big difference, i will polish the shoe body but you don’t need to polish the shoe body add a thin layer of black polish first. add around 2 layers then you can start polishing add black polish and water, then polish in circles when we polish, we should add some power but not too slightly and too hard almost used up, so add white polish so the procedure is black polish then white polish then black, then white…… then it will be more quicker to become shiny it’s ok if you don’t have white polish but white polish can make the shoe more shiny now, i use black polish so you can see it start to become glossy it starts like abit mirror feeling compare the not polished ones to the polished ones after polishing, the surface starts to be a slippery feel compare to ordinary ones, it more scratchy ,but the polished ones is not too scratchy. also the polished ones , when we scratch it ,it will have stains if the shoe have stains of scratched, like this the stained part won’t be glossy to remove these stains ,we need to polish , the procedure is the same with ordinary polishing add water first then the polish and polish the surface few minutes later, the stains disappeared! better ones are the one of the front of my shoe the standard at least like just now of my shoe body remember that you need to use black marker to paint the part that the black ring turned to gold
