Offers a wide range of products for numerous shoe polishing needs, including brushes, daubers, and cloths. Comes with black and brown polish. We love the handsome shoe valet box with pedal that gives this kit a professional touch. Makes a great gift.
The latch on the box needs improving, as it's flimsy and prone to breakage. Kit is on the higher end of the price range.
Packed with items that are smaller than average, which makes them ideal for travel. Owners rave about the slender travel case that is well-made and fits nicely into larger bags. Company offers a money-back satisfaction guarantee.
The downside of the small brushes is that they can be awkward to use on some types of shoes.
Stands out from others on our shortlist for the black polish and accessories that are designed for military and other professional uniformed service footwear. Kit includes a travel case. Lightweight but durable.
Bristles have been reported to fall out of the brush. Polish in some kits has been either dried out or melted upon delivery.
Garners enthusiasm for the oil, wax, and salve that do a good job conditioning and polishing leather. Products also have a pleasant scent. Kit includes a soft polishing cloth.
Not ideal for lighter colored leather, as the wax is somewhat dark. Owners wish the kit included brushes, especially considering it's a bit pricey.
A top-selling polish kit by a popular brand. Inexpensive, easy to use and effective. Includes brush, clothes, daubers, and black and brown polishes. Comes with a convenient carrying case.
Some kits arrived with leaking polish containers. Brush bristles have the tendency to fall out after several uses.
We purchase every product we review with our own funds — we never accept anything from product manufacturers.
Any pair of leather shoes will show some wear over time, but regular shining and care can keep them looking new and healthy. Shoe polish kits include a wide variety (and number) of tools, with the polish itself being the key ingredient. There are 2 main purposes to shining your leather shoes: cleaning and conditioning the leather. Dirt and grime builds up over time, and conditioning the leather helps to restore its moisture and look. Most kits include either a shine cloth or a brush, which is often made from 100% horsehair. Daubers are smaller and come in the form of brushes or sponges to apply polish. Other common tools include shoe horns, carrying cases, and additional brushes and cloths.
