Before, these shoes were dirty, slightly scuffed by white pebbles, and had been gathering dist.

Follow the Instructions on the Tin

"Natural waxes and oils protect and pamper smooth and high gloss leathers. It nourishes leather and intensively revives colours. For a perfect shine and texture, take out a small amount of wax using a cloth or soft brush and apply evenly. Allow to dry for 20 minutes and buff out with a cloth or soft brush when dry."

So I let it sit for 20 minutes. 🙄 🙄

Then I cleaned it with a soft brush. 🖌️


Shoelaces removed & replaced. They had gotten stiff, thin, and had ugly bends & creases in them.


I also wanted to replace the shoelaces with a new pair. 

I chose the white shoelace string (bottom right) thinking that white shoelaces would stand out against a black background. #ebonyandivory

Was careful not to get the black wax product on the welt, I do like how they glisten.

Thoughts on the white shoelaces? 🤔 🤔 🤔
