Christmas Prep Edition

With Christmas events coming up, today’s Shoe Shine Sunday is a refresh for some Saint Crispin’s 105s in crust calf. Join me by posting before and after photos here of your own polish job today!

Remember to also cross-post to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr (using the hashtag #shoeshinesunday)!

Without further ado, let’s get to it…

Today’s kit includes…
Saphir Leather Lotion
Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Shoe Polish in Medium Brown, Neutral
High Shine Glass Water Dispenser
Saphir Cotton Chamois
Cotton Pads
Ovangkol Sciuscià Polishing Brush
Edoya Finishing Brush

Remember to post photographs here today of you shining/polishing your shoes (before and after, please) and also to cross-post your photos on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr (using the hashtag #shoeshinesunday).

I’ll be checking back in on this thread throughout the day, so feel free to include any questions you might have along with your posts — who knows, the answer(s) may even be the subject of a future Shoe Shine Sunday!
