Shining your shoes is one of those activities that most men learn at a young age or teach themselves as they grow older. Like shaving or tying a tie, shoe shining is a sign of maturity, or at least adulthood. A nice shoe shine will help you look your best for a date, job interview or just a day at work. Shoe polish will give your shoes a luxurious glow, but build-up and patches of polish can dull them. Keep your shoes smooth and shiny to impress those around you.
