Step 1

Roll Bone Across Shoe

Now you use the deer bone to help compress and roll out those wrinkles and smooth that leather back to better condition. To use the deer polishing bone you simply take it into your hands and roll it through the creasing, applying moderate to firm pressure, to push those creases out.

Step 2

Brush off Shoes with Horsehair Brush

You'll see a white residue develop as you use the deer bone. When you finish, simply buff it off with a horsehair brush and you'll see that you're able to completely reverse the creasing that you find in the vamp of your shoes.
