Can I borrow that Shine Butler? I've got some work to do this weekend on my '91 Redwings. It could take a while.
Good idea. I’ll post pics when I’m done. I’m not going to bring them to a high shine because they will be doing some hard work come Monday, but I can get them back in fighting form with some elbow grease. Stay tuned.....These boots are what “before” and “after” photos are all about.
Maybe that is the issue. That is, where the sole is thirsty, I need to keep reapplying until the sole takes on a sheen, and does not dry from the sole guard application to look pretty much like the sole looked before the application of sole guard. That is slightly sheeny and not simply a flat finish.but I will say that the sole seems to get a sheen from the sole guard. Not slippery but it does appear that there is a “coating”.
2nd bottle? Are you drinking it neat or on the rocks?I just ordered my second bottle of Saphir Sole Guard. I have faith in your judgement johnniegold!
Also, even if it does not really do much for waterproofing. I like the way it makes the soles look and I have to think it is good for them.
