Not to jack the thread or anything but I have a question.
When I polish mine (only before shows, really) I have a kit. I get the grime off with a special brush. Then I swirl the polish in with another brush. Then, I wipe it with the little wipe that makes them pretty shiney.
After that I was taught to "seal" it with flame. I get a lighter and go over them a bit and it makes them extra shiney and makes the shine last longer. Is this bad for the boots though?
