    Isor is bored (really bored)

    Shoes tell alot about a person
    women look at them. Prospective employers
    look at them. If old dirty kicks are your thing
    and its working out for you then hey...roll with it
    if not i would recomend shoe care.
    I have decided to let everybody in one some
    shoe room tricks.

    First and formost. Shoe care like most things is
    easier and more effective if you have the right
    tools for the job.
    -Bucket of warm soapy water
    -Plastic Bristle Brush
    -Wire Brush
    -Deglazing fluid
    -clean towel
    -white polish
    First you should scrub the shit out of your dirty kicks
    with the plastic brush. (This being a hand held brush
    with hundreds of flexible plastic bristles). Work up a
    lather and wipe the dirt off them. Any area that doesnt
    come clean you will wipe with deglazing or spot removing
    fluid. Spot remover is a weaker form of deglazing fluid but
    both of these will remove dirt and scuff marks easy. The
    white rubber between the leather and the sole is the hardest
    to get clean. Take your wire bristle brush and dip in the the
    soapy H20. You can really jam on this soft rubber. The wire
    brush will not harm or ruin this rubber but its almost the only
    way to get stains out. If these stains are being stubborn you
    can try the deglazing fluid with the wire brush. At this point your
    leather and wire brushed rubber should look as good as new.

    Step 2: cut an old towel into a strip that measures 4 inches by
    12 inches (rectangle) and hold your first and middle fingers out
    wrap the polishing rag around these fingers. With your free hand
    twist the rag wrap it between your first finger and thumb and hold
    the rest of the towel with your ring pinkey and thumb. Wet the rag

    Step 3: Take some Kiwi white shoe polish and with your first
    and middle finger rub white polish on your leather in a circular
    motion, if you accidentally get white polish on a different color
    leather its all good.....Once you have polished the entire shoe
    you take a clean towel and wipe the white off. This leaves a nice
    shine on the white leather and it protects your shoes from dirt
    in the future. It doesnt take a ton of polish for a good shine.

    Step 4: If you have clogged some toe ventilation holes with polish
    you can take a tooth pic to them. If you got white polish on a different
    color leather you can take deglazing fluid to this and the polish will
    come off

    Note 1: Ive made old beaten up shoes look brand new with this exact
    Note 2: If you dont have deglazing fluid try gas or paint thinner


    REPEAT STEP 2 FROM ABOVE......looking down at your fingers it should look like first and middle standing, thumb to ring, thumb to pinky w the rag covering the first 2 and being held by your thumb and remaining fingers.

    Step 1: Choose the color depending on your shoes. Kiwi makes a good black and mahogony. Most dress shoes are Black or mahogony anyways. I wouldnt fuck with codrovan because it stains the shit out of your fingers.

    Step 2: wet your rag and wipe it in the polish..... in small light circles cover the shoe with polish. Focus most of the work on the toe area but cover the entire shoe.

    Step 3: rewet the rag and with the same polished covered part of the rag go back over the entire shoe in small circles. This begins to take polish off the shoe and puts it back on the rag. You dont have to press hard. At this point with a clean towel wipe the back and sides clean of polish

    Step 4: do step 3 over and over on the toe until there is very little polish left on the toe. take your towel and lightly (very lightly wipe the toe. The softer you wipe and the softer the towel the better the shine. If you have a way to secure the shoe take the towel on both ends and pull from side to side over the toe. This towel should be the same size of the polish rag if you are doing this

    If you have paint of your shoes you can use deglazing fluid or gasoline
    Never ever ever use a product called SUPER SHINE on your kicks it will ruin them

    I saw an interview with Ice-T and he said that before he got paid,
    which must have been like 1988 or something, he had to live in his car
    and he'd hit up this girls house to iron his clothes every morning before
    going about his daily biz. Ironing dirty clothes? Washing your shit in the
    sink at night and letting it dry in the bathroom while you wait.....

    you so ghetto. but the priorities are straight.
