Recap of the Japan Shoe Shine Championship

The Ginza Shoe Festa held two weeks ago was the first Shoe Shine Championship help in Japan. For the final leg of the event, 3 people were selected to compete in a timed shoe shining session. The participants had 1 min to examine the condition of the shoe before they start polishing. Thereafter, they had another minute to pick their shoe shine tools and products that they will be using for the polishing routine. The shoe shine products were sponsored and supported by Columbus and R&D Company. Hiroka Co. provided the shoes for the event.  Within 20 minutes, the participants had to polish the shoes as shiny as they can get it to be.
