When should you polish your shoes?
This all depends on how often your wear them! If you frequently wear your shoes out and about and they're beginning to lose their lustre, you should consider giving them a good polish. However, if you only wear them on special occasions, you can probably get away with polishing them after several outings.
Generally, once every month or so is ideal as polishing your shoes too much can leave an unsightly waxy layer on the shoe surface. Although this won't damage your shoes, it can be time-consuming, unnecessary, and (worst of all!) leave an unappealing appearance - the exact opposite effect that polishing your footwear should have.
How long do you leave shoe polish on before buffing?
The ideal amount of time that you should leave polish to work its magic will vary depending on the model and make of your shoe polish. However, it can be typically left for anywhere between 20 minutes to overnight. For the best results, we recommend leaving the polish to work for as long as possible. This will give the creamy or waxy shoe polish solution plenty of time to sink deep into the material. Finally, use either a brush or a polishing cloth to buff away the dried polish in circular motions.
Should you polish leather footwear?
Yes! Leather footwear can be given an extended lifespan if you take advantage of the benefits of shoe polish. However, it's worth ensuring that you pick the right kind of polish for this sought-after material. Indeed, while cream polish is fantastic for moisturising and nourishing the leather, wax polish is ideal for adding shine and covering any pesky blemishes. Using a combination could help your leather shoes to remain in prime condition for as long as possible.
It's also worth mentioning that although liquid polish is a speedy and convenient way to add shine to your shoes, its long-term use can cause leather to dry and crack. As a result, its best to avoid this type of shoe polish for leather items.
