Weekly Recap June 15-21, 2020
Here are some of the top social media posts using Pure Polish Products from the week of June 15-21, 2020.
Vintage Scotch Grain Leather Shined Up
Polishing grain leather is not an easy thing. Caring for the leather care be quite straight forward – keep it conditioned with Conditioner, protected with Cream, and add some scuff protection on the toes and heels with Paste/Wax Polish. But, getting that magic mirror shine or even a nice quality high shine, can sometimes be elusive.
Grain leather has more texture, it's grainy (by definition), and rubbing stiff waxes across grain can be challenging.

Beautiful Shoe Shine Before/Afters
Before and After examples of some beautiful leather shoes, including Crockett & Jones Derbies, Navyboot Oxfords, Allen Edmonds Strands with a custom patina, and Vintage Florsheim Imperial Wingtips.
Conditioning Allen Edmonds Weybridge
This morning, before I stepped outside on this brisk and blustery Winter day here in Bend, I conditioned my Allen Edmonds Weybridge Walnut Calfskin Oxfords. Bend has a very dry desert climate, so it dries out leather super-quickly. This is why it's super important to keep it conditioned, so that it doesn't crack.
The trick for getting the most from your Cleaner Conditioner is to apply it with your fingertips. Then you aren't leveraging the cleaning oils as much as the conditioning oils.
Monday Morning Mirror Shine Margates
I decided to pair my Allen Edmonds Margate Derbies with some Raleigh Denim Workshop Raw Denim jeans, and Nautica socks with a little orange highlight (it's Fall, after all).
