Swiss Shoe Care Kit

Banking. Watches. Cheese. Army knives.

There’s a lot to appreciate from the Swiss. They certainly know their footwear! So, be it a KS90, Austrian paratrooper boot, or just your favorite dress shoes, here’s a kit to keep your favorite foot-bearers looking like they just stood up from the bootblack’s chair. Tested by the Swiss military, these shoe cleaning sets come with polish, applicators, brushes, buttons, thread, and everything else needed to soup up your foot armor. All these are packed in suave rubber cases, nice enough on their own to serve as ideal grooming or toiletry kits.

Note: These kits are designed for leather shoes and boots. Don’t forget to follow our Boot Care Guide for the best results, or contact us if you have any questions using them.

Instructions

  1. Stage a shoe-surgery area somewhere with good air circulation using newspapers or cardboard — shoe polish fumes and you don’t want it on your carpet
  2. Use the sole brush (labeled “Schuhburste brosse a souliers”) and cloths to clear any dirt or grime from your shoe’s sole and other rubber parts
  3. Use the clothes brush (labeled “Kleiderburste brosse a habits”), and do the same for all leather parts of the shoe/boot
  4. At any time during steps #2 and #3, if the shoe or boot is incredibly dirty, discolored, or gross, use a scouring pad (or a Scotch-Brite pad) to remove harder-clinging debris
  5. Ensure the shoe or boot is dry before continuing
  6. Apply some of the cream from the red container (labeled “Creme pour L’ Entretien du cuir”) to a clean cloth and rub it across all surface areas of the shoe, except perhaps the bottom sole (at your discretion)
  7. Use a handle (tapered) brush to further apply this cream to any crevices or nooks on the shoe or boot
  8. Apply some of the cream from the black container (labeled “Creme pour chaussures”) to a clean cloth and rub this on the leather parts only — this is not meant for rubber
  9. Use the gloss and shine brush (labeled “Glanzeburste brosse a briller”) to give the shoe/boot a final once-over

The start of my shoe shining empire...

Little did Ivan know, he just willingly gave me the resources to shine the shoes of many a hipster. Also I must give props to Ivan for those delicious Mott's gummies he generously stuffed into my package, they were very tasty, whether they were Bill Cosby candy or not I still have yet to find out

Perfect package

How much more perfect can a product get. If you have real leather boots of any kind treat them to a nice scrub and they will thank you.
