Tip on how to shine patent Leather Reebok Shoes.

1. Clean your Reebok patent leather shoes with mild soap and water to be sure they are free of debris before shining.
2. Pour a few drops of mineral oil onto a clean, lint-free cloth.
3.Buff any scuffs on the surface of your patent leather Reeboks with mineral oil first. The mineral oil will help repair the scuff marks so your shoes look unblemished.
4.Add a few more drops of mineral oil to the cloth and rub the cloth over the entire shoe. Use circular buffing motions to make the shoe shine
5.Allow the oil to settle into the leather overnight before wearing, as wearing them right away could encourage dust to collect on the surface

How do you clean the Ecco Glide shoes?


Ecco Glides are good shoes, made of leather, not cheap plastic imitation leather. In the household aisle of the grocery store or a big-box (Wal-Mart or Target) store, find a tin of saddle soap. It's specifically designed for cleaning leather.
Follow the directions on the soap, but mostly it boils down to three steps:
1. Use a moist/damp rag and get most of the dirt off.
2. Use a (clean!) damp rag to rub a small amount of saddle soap all over your shoes. Rub it in well.
3. Use a (non-soapy!) damp rag to remove the soap.
Good luck!

How do I clean my Timberland Stormbuck (Nubuck) shoes?


  • Purchase cleaning products and brushes directly from Timberland. Their products are designed for suede, leather and nubuck.
  • Go to a shoe store like Footlocker and ask for the products they carry to clean your Timberland boots. Some sell kits and others carry suede erasers to clean the boots.
  • Wet a rag and wipe it all over the surface of the shoe. Spray on shoe cleaner and rub gently with a sponge. Rinse and let dry. Timberlands dry quickly.
  • Use a soft brush to scrub away excess dirt. Hold the boot over steam as you scrub.
  • Try baby wipes to clean your leather Timberland boots. They'll moisturize the leather and clean off grime.
  • Put your boots on, and use a wet rag as though you were giving yourself a shoe shine. Finish the spots you couldn't reach with a brush.
  • Use mink oil or saddle soap on leather boots. Both will keep the boots waterproof. Work either into the leather with a soft rag.
