Caring for your shoes pays off. It really does. It extends the life of your beloved footwear and helps stretch your dollar. I know that most of the major male publications like GQ and Esquire often wax lyrical about the process of caring for your shoes and the gratification that comes after a good self-polishing session.
I prefer to do things differently. I send all my shoes to my cobbler and general fabric guy who is fantastic at giving my shoes a thorough clean and a touch of care that I would never be able to replicate. So that’s why I don’t do it myself because I am of the belief that I shouldn’t waste my time doing things that I am not good at. I honestly wouldn’t know where to begin. Plus, supporting local small businesses is something I believe in and my guy is genius when it comes to making my shoes look better.
If you or someone you know is blessed with such skills and enjoy the process of giving his shoes a spiffy clean, then this shoe care kit from Brooks Brothers would make the perfect gift. This kit comes stocked with horsehair brushes, daubers, black and brown creams and polishing gloves; most everything one would need to keep his shoes shining and happy. All of this is housed in a refined cedar wood box that will definitely not go unappreciated.
