Slight adjunct to the boots bulling thread...

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. My combat highs get scuffed to crap when used in normal situations - e.g. my shooting prone position seems to destroy my toe-caps! They get so badly scuffed that they don't take polish properly anymore, meaning they end up looking like they have boot leprosy when I have to wear them day-to-day. Any suggestions as to how to cover up the scuffs?
     
  2. KIWI liquid polish, make sure you get the one with a high wax content. Works very well on scuffs etc.

  4. Exchange them?
     
  5. Can't remember the name of the stuff, it's been a while, but it's available in the kiddies shoe dept. And has (or at least used to have) a cartoon of ankle biters playing ring-a-rosy on it, sort of pointy bottle with a sponge on top.

    Just dab it on the scuffs and leave it an hour or two, gives a near perfect surface that takes polish grand. Does wear off after a while mind and needs a re app.
     
  6. Good stuff. Thanks for that, chaps.
