Clean away dirt using a damp cloth and allow to dry, then apply Dr.Martens clear or coloured wax polish as appropriate, using a Dr.Martens shoe brush, (Neutral can be applied to all colours). Allow to dry, then buff vigorously to desired shine using a second clean Dr.Martens shoe brush. (We advise to use 2 brushes per colour, one to add the polish and the second clean dry brush to buff up the leather for the best results).
