The Shoe Whisperer Strikes Again

 That Dapper Chap shows us his leather brogues before and after The Shoe Whisperer has worked his incredible magic and created a different pair of shoes.

My brogues, before and after
A few weeks ago I visited Steve Skippen, otherwise known as ‘The Shoe Whisperer’ in the foyer of London’s Hilton Hotel. He told me all about his trade as a master shoeshine to the stars, and he even gave my black tassel loafers a good brush up and shine while I was there. See the full piece here.

Shoe re-colouring

For my visit, I also took a pair of old tan leather brogues as I was also aware that aside from shining shoes, Steve is also a recolouring expert, and can change a battered old shoe into a beautiful new pair, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Follow the incredible transformation of my shoes in the images below:
