The Art Of Shoe Shining

Discover the art of shoe shining with shine tsar Mr Justin FitzPatrick.

MR PORTER guides you through the complexities of oiling your Oxfords and buffing your brogues together with shoe shining connoisseur Mr Justin FitzPatrick. Follow this step-to-step guide to become an expert in artisanal shoe polishing at home.

Steps:
1. Cleaning. Clean your shoes with a brush or cloth to get rid of dirt or dust. Remember to allow time for drying after each stage.
2. Conditioning. Feed the leather the nutrients it needs to avoid drying the leather.
3. Colour rejuvenation. Take a welt brush with a cream and paste polish and rub around the entire shoe thoroughly.
4. Wax polish application. Take an old rag and apply wax polish in circular motion.
5. Shining. Continue the wax polishing and mix with water and continue to apply in circular motions until you build up the perfect shine.

Shoe polishing

God's hands of Japanese shoeshine king!

I: Philip Two
Y: We’ll see the way the no.1 specialist in the West of Japan shines shoes

I: It looks like you brush your teeth.
Y: It’s really a brand new stuff.
I: I practice, I study, and I stole experts’ techniques.

Y: Good morning. This is Kojiragu-Yanaka. Today I’m in Shibuya. I told you in the program on New Year’s day that I do a program on shoes. Today’s program is its vol.1. Lately the price of leather for shoes gets higher and the work of shoe polishing gains peoples’ attention all over again. Then I heard that a specialist in the West of Japan opened a new store in Shibuya, so pay a visit to experience his service.
S: Wow, everything changed.
Y: Yah, the whole town has changed. Totally changed.
S: Under construction everywhere!

Y: So let’s go there now. This side of town has been totally changed…Wow, Shibuya totally changed…Amazing. Lots of shops were gone. It’s been awhile since I visited this side of town, but when I was younger, I had fun times at ROOMS. This shop is a familiar one for me. UNION WORKS. It’s an old good shop. Repairing my shoes at a traditional brand. Wow, it’s a new room number. It reads “Call 111”, which used to be “001”. UNION WORKS.

Y: Good afternoon. Nice to meet you. I’m Yanaka of Forza Style.
I: Welcome to our shop. This is Iwami.
Y: I know this place just because I’ve been seeing your website. Is this shop located inside UNION WORKS?
I: No, we just succeeded its first shop, which was alive for 22 years.
Y: Succeeded? Wow!
I: We THE WAY THINGS DO does all the operation.
Y: By the way, I heard your Tokyo branch got started in January, 2019…
I: Yes, it was the 7th of January.
Y: So it’s literally a brand new. What does THE WAY THINGS DO offer?
I: Show polishing with cream, which is 1000 Yen, 2800 Yen for one week program, and express polishing on site costs 4000 Yen.
Y: So my shoes on site, please.
I: PHILIP II
Y: Yes. I’ve made up my mind to put a pair of expensive shoes on. I hope you do an outstanding job since I’ll wear them long term.
I: Sure. Thank you.
Y: I’m just wondering if you could show me special techniques of the specialist in the West of Japan
I: These shoes are ordinary ones…
Y: That’s right. You have Rose Gold as inline, also Edward Green-colored Westminster in them, Square tows named 888, I like their sexy, kinda erotic features. So I chose this color deliberately, later on I figured they also offer a silver color just in Japan upon requests… Anyway, my boss also wears the same color.
I: First, I’d take all the dust off.
Y: Just curious…Is this brush your original?
I: Yes, it’s an original one.
Y: Would you recommend house hairs brush for taking the dust off?

Step 1 (00:37): Clean Your Shoes with a Damp Cloth
The first step is to thoroughly clean the surface of your shoes using some water just to remove any type of surface dirt.

Step 2 (01:18): Apply Saphir Pommadier Cream Polish
After you've cleaned your shoes using a damp cloth, the next step is to apply Saphir's Medaille D'Or Pommadier Cream Polish. The polish will condition and recolor the shoes and acts as a gentle cleaner. Use a cotton chamois cloth to apply the cream polish and massage into the leather using circular motions.
After applying the polish, allow the leather to absorb the ingredients and the waxes to dry, for 3-5 minutes.

Step 3 (03:00): Buff off Cream Polish
Take a horsehair brush and begin to buff the polish off using moderate to firm pressure. The brush removes any excess polish, smoothes the polish out, and the friction between the brush and polish will allow the waxes to begin developing their shine.

You should be able to achieve a pretty nice shine after one application, but feel free to apply another coat if you'd like to build up the finish.

Step 4 (04:40): Apply Saphir Medaille D'Or Pate De Luxe Wax Polish
The wax polish helps elevate the shine of your fine dress shoes. We recommend matching the wax polish to the cream polish. Apply a small amount of wax polish using a cotton chamois cloth to the shoe using circular motions. Make sure you do not too much wax along the vamp (where the shoe bends) because it will cause creasing and streaking. Allow wax polish to dry for about 2-3 minutes before moving on to the next step.

Step 5 (06:01): Buff Off Wax Polish
Buff the wax polish using moderate to firm pressure.

Use brisk side-to-side motions to remove any excess polish and help bring up that nice, soft shine. Apply a second coat of the cream polish and buff off again.

Step 3 (03:26): Apply Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Polish
Apply wax polish to your shoe using a clean part of the cotton chamois cloth.

Step 4 (04:28): Buff Off Pate De Luxe Wax Polish
Buff off polish using brisk, side-to-side motions.

The World's Best Shoe Shine

Shine Force strikes again, ASMR, shoe shine

Jason Dornstar got his start shining shoes serendipitously one morning at the Denver International Airport while acting like he was an employee at one of the Executive Shine Stands. After this exhilarating experience and earning a quick 40 dollars, Jason went on to be an Art curator for a local brewery in Denver in his free time. A few years later, Jason was offered a full time position Shining Shoes at Nordstrom in South Denver Colorado. He was searching for references to learn from in the shoe shine community and found Mike Wilson on YouTube. Mike Wilson was shining shoes with such a classic and authentic approach to the art of the shine. While watching Mike Wilson pop his rags while Mike listened to jazzy funky beats in his office, Jason was inspired to make a shoe shine video of his own. After Jason created a few videos he soon ended up catching the attention of The O.G. Mike Wilson himself. The small but often cheeky rivalry was then born. Jason still considers Mike Wilson as the originator of shoe shine videos on YouTube and contributes most of his success to the inspiration he recieved from Mike Wilson.

After honing in on his skills as a professional shoe shiner, he was encouraged by his loyal following of subscribers on YouTube to continue creating these videos. A couple of years later, after traveling to Hong Kong to teach the Art of Shoe Shine to future business owners, he made a name for himself in the Global Shoe Shine Community by trailblazing his way top the top on social media. Jason continues to teach and inspire many new faces in the Shoe Shine Community while serenading the ASMR Community with the subtle sounds of the Shine.

The Art of The Craft - Shoe Shine Valet

What makes the Shoe Shiner at The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, stand out isn't his job title, but his approach to service. By treating every guest like a visitor to his home, he makes them feel welcome and engaged. That's why on most days, you won't find him behind the shoeshine stand, but in the front lobby, warmly greeting guests and offering them cold apple tea or cherry juice in summer, or hot towels in winter.
