How to use the Basic Shoe Care Kit

1 – Use the horsehair brush to remove any dust and dirt from the surface of the shoe

2 – Wrap the Selvyt cloth around a finger and touch the top of the renovateur cream; a little goes a long way. Massage the cream into the leather

3 – Leave the shoes for half an hour or so for the renovateur to work its magic, then fold the selvyt several times to create a ‘pillow’ with a flat surface and buff the cream off the shoes

4 – Dab the corner of one of the palot brushes onto the appropriate wax (it’s best to use only one brush per colour), then brush down the welt area of the shoe between the sole and the upper

5 – Wrap the selvyt around a finger and touch the top of the appropriate wax, then massage the polish into the leather. As with the renovateur, a little goes a long way. Several thin layers are much more efficacious than one thick layer

6 – Fold the cloth as before, and buff the shoes

7 – Repeat steps 5 and 6 twice more

8 – If needed, get some high denier ladies’ tights to a final very brisk buff to bring out the best of the shine
