Morello

#1
This is really last minute.

Does anyone know where to get Morello polish for shoes in central london? I've tried quite a few places, but not many people have heard of it.

Even somewhere that did 24hr delivery would be really useful.

Many thanks,

Ging

Do it properly you lazy git! :wink:

Use 100% cotton cottonwool, Black and Brown parade gloss (used alternatly gives a deeper shine, last few coats should be black), boiled water (cold) sat in front of the telly, they will be gleaming in no time!

Cheats never prosper!

That's what I ended up doing.

However, I ordered some off ebay, got it on Thursday and my parade boots look like mirrors.

Ta muchly, Securit.

they might look good now but I bet in a few weeks your boots look rough as

short term solution though

It's not a polish..... well wax anyway.....?

It's a liquid that you "paint" on boot leaving an instant high gloss finish.

As I said, I've always thought the brush marks left are a dead give away....

Also heard people getting boots sprayed with aircraft nose cone paint?

I have used Leather Luster in the past (no comments its legit) as used by the USMC.
You do paint it on but no brush marks and lasts for ages.
I use it on my work shoes last the duration of the shoe and all you use is furniture polish to shine them up. Scuffs re paint or take it all off with white spirit and start again!
Brought up a pair of comfy Mess Wellies a treat when they were heading for the bin because the leather looked a bit jaded!
Colours White, Black and Brown.

Cheers

Oh ok, thanks for the info fellas. I have seen quite a few people using Shape-up recently and it sounds quite like what you describe morello as.

I've always stuck to the usual bullshit with Kiwi. But i might give one of these products a try.

Anyone can tell you've used it!!!!!!!
Thats because you are using it wrong.

Put it on really thick, wait for it to dry, go round the welts with a matchstick to remove any runs and Robert is a relative.

As for looking rough after a while, who cares just give them another coat.

Easy stuff for when you can't be arrsed to do them "properly".

After you have put a couple of coats of morello on i usually put a couple more layers of parade gloss on top. It gets rid of the brush strokes and it comes up like glass and lasts for ages.

Never had any probs applying Morello. The brush that comes with it is fine and don't be tempted to drag out a four inch paintbrush just to get the job done quicker.

Best NOT done after a night on the lash as the shakes will Morello anything and/or everything in close proximity.

On a best boots parade the SSM seeing our excellent results with Morello, banned bulled boots and told all the knobbers to get it done properly. With Morello of course.

I was hoping someone would post this!!!!!! Can you decribe this process in a little more detail? i.e. what end of match!!!! is it lit (lol), does this not mark finish?

Ahh yes, morello! I used it on my drill boots before my Sovs Parade at Sandhurst and it got through a close up inspection from my Welsh Guards CSgt (admittedly he was slightly p1ssed after a Sgts' Mess meeting). Best advice has already been given. Get the morello on, let it dry and then get some Kiwi on top.
