Instead of using polish, try Sk8tape. Each roll contains 20 feet of tape.
SK8TAPE ® is a highly specialized vinyl tape developed for use by competitive, professional and recreational skaters. It is used to protect leather from scrapes, scratches and scuff-marks and also to give skates a remarkably clean, bright look that no polish can match. SK8TAPE ® is inconspicuous and is intended for use in both practice and competition.
SK8TAPE ® will not harm leather. It is waterproof and will not come off while skating, yet it can be easily removed and will not leave a sticky mess.
With SK8TAPE ® skaters can creatively design their skates for shows, precision skating, or just for fun with the use of colored SK8TAPE ®, stickers, etc.. SK8TAPE ® eliminates the need for polish or boot covers, and it will also keep the resale value of skates high.
SK8TAPE ® is highly recommended for all aspects of skating: singles, pairs, dance, precision, competition, shows, practice, etc..
