This edge dressing provides a nice final step after a good boot polishing. The only thing I noticed is that if you are not careful, the dressing can drip off the applicator onto whatever is below (carpet, etc). Just be aware and make sure you have a drop cloth, newspaper, or at least something to protect yourself from getting in trouble with your spouse.
I came across Feibing's Leather Sole & Heel Edge Dressing in my search for a product that would help restore the black synthetic heel and outsole on my daily Oxfords. This product is basically a water-based dye that is easy to apply, but can also be very messy if one isn't careful. Drips are easy to clean off hard surfaces, but it will quickly stain any fibrous materials so it's in one's own interest to lay out some newspaper around the work space.
I found that applying a single, wet, and even coat gives better results than if the product is used as instructed. Because it's water-based, it takes about 10-15 minutes to dry completely and the product will run in the meantime if applied wet. If the smooth surface layer of the rubber outsole has not worn off, the dressing will leave a semi-glossy finish. If the rubber wall has been scuffed, rashed, or worn off, then it will just darken it.
The effect that can be achieved can be seen in the accompanying photos. Photos...
This is the real deal folks. Edge dressing miliary style. In the age of the forgotten art of a shined pair of shoes and correctly dressed edges taking care of a detail like this will not go unnoticed. Be very careful with it, as it is powerful. Far better than the sponge on stuff you find in drugstores.
