Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. noticed my ones have peeled slightly from walking/bending at the point on your shoes your toes start. can these be salvaged by just re bulling. or is it a complete write off.
  2. Very dry soap mixed with Kiwi,,,,,,,excellent shine,,,,,till it rains : (
  3. Clean off the chips, re-bull, job done
  4. its peeled straight from the stitchin at the end of the toe caps about half a cm from here and about 3 cm long. if i bull will it not just constantly now remove the edges where it meets the raw base. really dont want to have to re do the whole toe cap again like.
  5. I always used Brasso for repairs. Dab a bit on your cloth whilst your bulling with kiwi and it will help make the damage less obvious whilst leaving a good shine. 20mins of hard work and you should be done.

    You're welcome.

  6. If its the new FADS shoes, burn the polish in, about 3 layers should do. Then bull again. Job jobbed. Don't do what one of my mates did, left them in the sunshine, sun melted all the polish off whilst soaking up all the oils from the polish into the leather. Never get them shiny again. Ha Ha
  7. Yep, use a hot spoon on the curling bits and then re-bull
