If there is another thread covering this info, please respond with a link and I would be happy to go there. I have looked over the search results and a few threads and I could not seem to find what I was looking for. </disclaimer> Could someone please give me tips on polishing wingtips? I own and have been polishing my wingtips for some time (using both cream and kiwi wax) but I find that when I buff a shine out, my buff rag tends to be quickly inundated with excess polish. So, I've tried using less polish and more brush but I still run into the same excess. I've determined that no matter how much or how little polish I apply with an applicator (foam or brush), excess polish wedges in the holes and articulations of the shoes, thereby coming loose while buffing. My solution thus far has been to go over the shoes with cream first, brush, then apply the Kiwi only to flat areas (no pointy articulations rife with holes, etc). This has seemingly worked but I'm afraid of not protecting the leather enough by skimping on polish, or is there simply a better way to do all this? And unless I'm doing something completely wrong, I'm not looking for a guide on how to polish; just tips on the 'tips.
