Evening all. I've recently acquired a set of 3-hole Doc Marten's shoes to wear with my Hatch-Match-&-Dispatch suit. Being keen to keep up a smart appearance, I've taken the Kiwi to them a couple of times now, but the polish isn't developing like I'm used to on boots. I've heard that the factory now puts a varnish or coating on the leather that protects the shoes from moisture when they're shipped out, and keeps them looking OK-ish in the shoe-shop. However, this coating does seem to stop the polish penetrating the leather and doing its stuff. Proword: No-WAH Is it possible to get this coating off without ruining the leather underneath?
