Shoes make the man; polish makes the difference.
When the weather outside's less than stellar, there's nothing like hearty socks to keep your toes warm and toasty. Make sure you've always got a pair at the ready with this handsome storage container, crafted from aromatic cedar with a lacquer-coated bottom to keep six pairs (more if they’re thin) of socks neatly organized. And bonus, the cedar will keep moths, pill bugs, and other garment-harming bugs away from your finest sole-protectors. Stock the box full, always, so you don’t have to waste your time hunting for a matched pair each morning.
The worst part of your day? Any time you have to bend over and remind yourself of just how inflexible you are. Woodlore gets it, and that’s why they crafted this insanely attractive shoe horn. It’s made from aromatic kiln-dried cedar and features a faux leather handle. At over two feet long, it’ll help your feet get in and out of your shoes without the bends or damaging the achilles section of your footwear. Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make it easier.
Shining one's shoes is a ritual that men have passed down to their sons since the 18th century. When your shoes are shined up, it shows that you take care of yourself, right down to the smallest details. Line of Trade teamed up with Prestige, the Italian shoe-care masters, to put together everything you need in a shoe shine kit.
Made in Germany from horsehair and beech wood, these are the the most important brushes to have in your arsenal. Use 'em to buff up your shoes and wick off the excess polish. The bristles won't scratch your handsome leather but will leave you with a clean finish. The different colored bristles help differentiate the two brushes, so that you don't accidentally use the black brush on your brown shoes and change the patina of your shell cordovan.
With a long beech wood handle and horsehair bristles set in a circular shape, this brush works cream polishes and cleaners into your favorite pair. It's long enough so that you won't stain your hands, and the specially selected bristles are soft enough that you'll never risk damaging your leather. These brushes hold the color from the polish in their bristles after use, so keep one for brown and one for black shoes.
Pamper before you polish. Use this moisturizer to clean and soften your shoe's leather so that the colored cream polish holds much more easily. Apply it all over with a circular motion, and don't forget about the soles. They need a little TLC as well.
This is the heart and soul of your polishing routine. Pick the polish that matches your shoe and work it in slowly with the applicator brushes. These creams will add a gentle richness to the leather's color, clean up scuff marks, and add a subtle shine.
Finish everything off with a wax to create a mirror shine and up the professionalism in your step. Though this isn't necessary for every polish, use it when you want to add that little extra glow for a special night or an important meeting.
This 100% cotton cloth is a must have for any shoe polishing kit. The extremely soft material sweeps the leather for dirt and debris and also helps to buff up your shoe when you're looking to add a high shine to the tip and heel of your shoe.
If you're dealing with suede, then it's time to break out a special brush. The bristles are made of brass and are used expressly to help comb out dust and reset the matted suede fibers to their natural nap.
