hola kodaky! hey mi mistake, se llama en realidad: boleador, not bolero, sorry... we say: boleador de zapatos o boleador de calzado... so engraxate in portuguese? i guess from wax? we have 'grasa para los zapatos.. sounds familiar, huh? :)

herr Thilo, schmutzige Schuhe haben? kommen sie nach Autlán? :)

Sí! engraxate em português, por graxa/grasa.

some engraxates become urban folkloric characters:
