Happy holiday weekend! Today I’m brushing up some Saint Crispin’s Model 205s in FUN 609 — join me by posting photographs here today of you shining/polishing your shoes (before and after shots, please)!

Without further ado, let’s get to it…

My Saint Crispin’s Model 205s have been worn a bit, but yesterday I noticed that they needed a bit of a refresh. So, not having any footie to watch this morning, I broke out the usual refreshing tools and prepared to get to work…


Today’s set up includes:
Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Polish in neutral, dark brown
Edoya brush
Cotton pads
Leather Shoeshine Carpet
Saphir Renovateur
Deer Bone

As usual, I started off brushing the shoes, this time just with my beautiful Edoya brush…and I just kept brushing…

IG approved

A little underwhelming in terms of numbers of photos, I know, but the brush is just fantastic to use and I wound up not needing to use anything at all on the uppers. I did clean the welts with neutral Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Polish, smooth the sole edges with the Deer Bone, and re-wax the sole edges with dark brown Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Polish as usual, though.
