video showing how to start polishing a new pair of parade shoes. there are different ways to do this but this is the way I was taught in the army. hope it he…
Hey, I’m a royal marine cadet and this has helped me out big time with my
cap shoes, thanks!
Can you do a video for Army Boots???
Thank you, but I’ve heard that Parade Gloss contains paraffin:
One tip I’d like to mention is to use surgical gloves if you are as clumsy
as I am.
Another is to put a good film on!
True craftsman. Makes me want to shine up a pair of Dr. Martens I just got,
but I like he matt finish on them better. :)
awww cute size 3 ;)
I have the same shoes same water bowl and same rag(I forgot name of it)but
my mom didn’t get same polish
@Samson Faccon Yes, It called water bull
I have heard that using cotton balls, can make the bates/shoes to become
more shiny than using a cloth. Although this video, is a good tutorial for
cadets like me, thank you.
Would you apply some sort of heat either with a lighter or hot spoons?
I have parade boots, my left one is perfect but my right one i managed to
mess up, the leather on it is damaged and makes it impossible to polish.(i
already took off the polish with hot water) if anyone could help me out
that would be great, thanks!
Never used it myself but worth a try.. Kiwi is a reasonably priced and very
good polish with a long history too. I know there are many good polishes
out there nowadays, each to there own, but I will certainly give it a go if
I find some on sale.
hi should of said, you can only but it from USA, I got mine off of Amazon,
but not cheap, if your interested…
would you suggest fire shining the shoes after you are done layering the
I cant stress enough not to use parade gloss it does not do crap. if you
want to learn to polish boots/shoes right go to ”how to polish cadet
boots” by my username (Sheldon cooper). please you will wreck your shoes
and boots if you do what this video says. also my method works on shoes and
boots and you should use spit because it is not greasy like he says, the
debate over spit is that spit contains salt which can dry out the leather
(which it wont) not that its greasy.
try using kiwi cordovan polish, gives a deep gloss shine, better than
They are straight out of the box just take a look at the inside. there is
no wear on the logo.
hey man, nice video what brand are the shoes? i couldnt quite catch the logo
never been worn but yet somehow they have a crease were your toes bend,
nice try mate
Thanks for a great tutorial
I have use cotton balls and they work fine, The cloth I suggest is the
silvyt cloth which is a silver cleaning cloth and very smooth they were
always on sale in the Naffi shop at the training depots. The principle is
the same which ever you use.
That was very helpfull, thanks.
I used ordinary Kiwi polish in the Army for 17 years and then Kiwi parade
gloss for the last 10 years and I have had no problem with either. As I
said in my video some people use spit, some water, up to the individual,
just be careful if you’ve not long eaten or had a drink as what is in your
mouth comes out with your spit. I just perfer water as I know it’s clean
and It works for me.
