  • Boot polish question

    I bought the 5.11 tactics 8" side zip A.T.A.C. boots yesterday and the shop shined them for me. Today I wore them around the house a little and noticed they are covered in polish dust. Do i need to to hit them with the cloth to remove it or is this just the nature of the beast? I have never polished boots before. Any help is much appreciated.

    Best time to put a shine (spit shine) is afte the boots have been 'broken in". Once the natural creases are created in the boot the polish dust doesn't appear.

          I have a kiwi shining kit, got it from target for like 10bucks.

          This is the way I shine my shoes/boots.

          except before I start, I take out the laces and I hit up the shoe with a horse hair brush first to get rid of all the dust and dirt and little scuff marks.

            I've notice that too, I think is because most of the vids are from kids in HS in the ROTC, this pair of bates are pretty shiny tho.
