3. Polishing
Buff the shoe with a shoe gloss brush. If you don’t have a gloss brush, you may use any clean cloth. Avoid pressing down on the leather surface. Instead, let the brush or cloth sit gently on it. When buffing, try to apply quick strokes as emphasis on shoe polishing is on the speed rather than the strength.
