Boot Black's (Black Label) Polish is oil-based characterised by high concentration of waxes. The wax polish has less colour pigment than Boot Black's (Black Label) Shoe Cream, but offers a superior shine and is the product to select for that elegant lustre or high-shine effect.
An oil-based wax with finely packed pigments and combination of quality waxes, including beeswax.
1. Ensure the leather is moisturised prior to applying the wax polish.
2. For general shine, apply a small amount to your application cloth and massage it evenly over the leather upper.
3. For high-gloss finish, alternate the application of wax and water.
4. Use a clean cotton cloth of goat hair brush to buff out the shine.
The general areas to high-shine (glacage / mirror shine) include the toe box, lace area and heel counter. More wax to water (a small drop) ratio to start. Once you begin to achieve the desired shine, more water (small drop) to wax.
Over application of wax product may make the leather appear cloudy (don't worry, this is common). Simply leave it for several minutes and then gently buff it with your application cloth. Once clear again, continue as desired.
