Top Tips for Cadet Parade Shoes
- Your cadet shoes should be polished to a high standard and cadets take great pride in this.
- Use plain shoe polish instead of parade gloss. This method is more difficult, but the deeper shine on your parade shoes as a result is worth the effort.
- Never leave your ATC or CCF parade shoes in direct sunlight, as it will damage the shine.
- Running your ATC or CCF shoes under ice cold water and rubbing with cotton wool will remove any smears left on them from polishing.
