Kiwi Color Shine Instant Polish – $4.99
Knowing how to properly shine shoes is quickly becoming a lost art. Shoe shiners have been relegated to airports and the front halls of only the nicest hotels. Many a man will buy a pair of dress shoes, wear them for a few years, and throw them out without having them shined even once. It takes time to do it right, and a lot of us don’t want to spend that time doing it ourselves, or the money to have someone do it for us.
Try this. Have your shoes professional shined only before big events, and in between keep them maintained with an easy to apply instant wax. Kiwi makes their instant shoe polish for guys who want their shoes to be protected and look good, but don’t want to spend their evenings with shoe brush and polish can in hand.
Simple to apply, doesn’t need to be buffed, just rub it in evenly and it brightens up the leather.
Cheap, quick, and easy.
