Thanks for the thread E. E. I will tell you the secret that still hasn't been talked about yet. All new recruits in The USMC are required to wear their boots into the showers for a week to condition the leather for shining and stretch to fit. The Marines are never allowed to use hair spray and would be a butt chewing if caught. The shine is from multiple strokes that eventually glaze the leather and coats of polish and wax that become like a shell eventually s/f opedit on 7-11-2011 by CherubBaby because: (no reason given)

Buy another set of shoes just for inspecting and you can save many hours shining.
