Step 1: Remove Laces
Remove the laces from the dress shoes
Step 2: Insert Shoe Trees
To make the polishing process easier, insert your shoe trees into shoes
Step 3: Cover Suede with Tape
If your shoe has both leather and suede, you will need to cover the suede with a gentle painters tape. If your shoe has no suede you can skip this step.

Use the horse hair shoe shine brush to remove any dirt and dust from the outside of the shoe. Use light pressure and quick rapid motions along the entire shoe.
Step 5: Brush down stitching
Use the Dauber to brush between the outsole and the upper part of the shoe. One of most important steps is to be sure to keep your stitching clean in order to increase longevity.
Step 6: Apply Polish
Apply a small amount of polish to your polishing cloth and begin to apply in large circles with light pressure. Repeat throughout the shoe.
Step 7: Apply a Little Water
After applying polish, apply a few drops of water and procced to apply in smaller circles with more pressure. Repeat throughout the shoe.
Step 8: Brush in Polish
Use the brush once again at the end to brush the shoe through out. This will apply the polish into the groves of the shoe. Use a medium amount of strength when brushing.
