Wing Tips with a Bit of Bling
So, last week I was so pissed off at Red Wing Shoe store because, even though they’ve been available for months, my local store decided not to carry women’s Iron Rangers I went to DSW and spent a lot of money. Besides Steve Madden Ciomi Combat Boots (maybe a later post) I bought these extremely comfortable Børn Binn wing tips in Tobacco.
Adding the Bling Factor
- I conditioned the shoes and gave most of the upper a light polish with Meltonian brown shoe polish paste.
- I wanted to make the tips stand out so I took just a little bit of my Dr. Marten’s cherry polish and applied that just to the toe cap area and polished with a horsehair brush lightly sprinkled with water. I repeated the toe cap polishing two more times to get a high shine.
- I used a scrap of panty hose to lightly brush each show all over to bring out that last bit of shine.
Here’s the end result. I’m pretty happy with them.
