Not that I`ve done a shoe, but I`ve seen Buddy of KakeBoss (I use the `K` so it doesn`t jump to the link) use a clothes steamer. This makes fondant shiny.

HTH.

How about using confectioners glaze to make it shiny.

Gum arabic and water brushed on makes patent leather. I got mine from Global Sugar Art if memory serves.

Someone else on here had suggested using the steam from a tea kettle for smaller objects. I bet that would work for your shoe! Good luck!

I use Americacolor or Wilton Black gel colors mixed with vodka to make mine shine.
