How To Make Cheap Boots Look Expensive

about:

I get it. I show a lot of expensive things on this channel and it may be discouraging to a student or young man looking to begin curating a wardrobe. This is a technique I first saw on Dappered and have always wanted to try; it essentially makes cheap leather look more expensive. How? Well you’ll need a few things: a horsehair brush, a dauber, and black shoe polish. I went with the Saphir black because it’s so pigmented but you can try your favorite brand too. All you do is give the boots a shine using the same steps you would with a normal shoe, but the black polish darkens the leather and brings out the edges nicely. They may not be hand painted and distressed but this is a budget build after all! Yes, over time the polish will wear off. Its probably best to stick with medium to dark trousers until they’ve really dried out and any loose polish has been removed – keep your white denim away!
