If you care for your oxfords, derbies, and loafers the way a man who takes pride in his accessories do, then you need a proper set of tools for the job. And while you can buy individual brushes, cloths, and cans of polish, we have feeling you’ll have an easier time just picking up one of American Shine’s Complete Kits.
Designed to help keep your leather shoes in tip-top shape, the kit contains everything you need to clean, condition, and nourish your favorite footwear. That way, your shoes will always look as dashing as your custom-tailored suits, ensuring you’re always looking spruced-up and dapper from head to toe (assuming, of course, your hair game is also on point).
The American Shine Complete Kit consists of two wood-backed horsehair brushes, a pair of horsehair polish daubers, two cans of shoe polish, a bottle of leather conditioner, a polish cloth, and a microfiber cloth. The whole set comes inside a wooden shoe shine box that’s available in two variants: Pioneer (which measures 12 x 9 x 7 inches) and Executive (12 x 9 x 11 inches). While the box makes for a handy way to keep your supplies, it’s also designed to double as a foot stool during shoe cleaning duties, with a footrest for laying your shoes on and a pair of metal bars where you can thread the cloth while moving it back and forth when polishing the shoes to a shine.
Available now, pricing for the American Shine Complete Kit starts at $174.99.
