This will get you by if you need to slap a good shine on your jump boots and you are very short on time. However I've gotten much better shines out of simple Kiwi Shoe polish or Parade Gloss using the time-tested (albeit time-consuming) spit-shine method.
Also, I already had a few layers of Parade Gloss on it prior to applying the gloss, which may have affected the results. It will probably get you out of hot water if for some reason you have a "surprise inspection" dropped on you and you haven't touched your boots in weeks (happened), or you're lazy (like me), but if you have the time, get some Parade Gloss and do it right.
But then, I tested it a few other ways - and, it comes out really nice.
#1. Use a really good shoe cream, like a Meltonian and buff / finish
#2. Apply one coat of the Honor Guard, and let dry
#3. Apply second coat of the Honor Guard, and let dry
#4. Apply a third and final coat of the Honor Guard --- the shoes, they look like they rolled off the factory line!
The Scuff Cover is simply black dye, which you can buy more cheaply at the leather shops. The Honor guard does not leave much of a shine, and covers only fair.
Their wax products appear to be simply a mix of wax and dye. They do not flow easily, nor go well into creases and depressions. The small amount (1 1/2 oz.) in this expensive can, does not go very far. It's shine is good, but I have seen better ones produced more easily on other products.
Some of the cheap Chinese shoe products are more liquid, better darkening, and buff shinier at a fraction of the cost ( I hate to admit).
