LINCOLN TAN SHOE WAX
"Simply the best" since 1925.
Lincoln Stain Wax Shoe Polish (Black) gives a quick, bright, and lasting shine to most of the black leather products we make. Lincoln Black Shoe Polish can be used to “blacken up” historical reproductions after field use. It can also be used for the perfect military “SPIT SHINE” finish on boots and belting. Not for use on suede or man-made materials.
When the United Nations came to San Francisco in 1945 to develop its charter, Lincoln created a special polish for the U.S. Marines who stood watch over the proceedings. Following World War II, the Corps made Lincoln’s Marine Cordovan standard issue in a soldier’s duffel, so that the military’s boots on the ground would shine with the finest carnauba wax.
One sergeant was so infuriated by the ease with which his dogfaces were able to raise a spit-polish shine with Lincoln that he sent the company a letter saying he had banned its use by his unit. That grudging testimonial remains tucked away in a safe at the Lincoln Shoe Polish Co.
How to Apply Lincoln Shoe Polish:
Give your leather a quick wipe with a damp sponge or cloth and leave to dry naturally. Apply lightly over the entire product with a soft cloth or dauber. Polish lightly with a brush and finish with a soft cloth or Canton flannel. To bring out an extra bright shine, apply a second coat after the first coat has been polished.
