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 Ranger 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 have seen various levels of use, and as such, items have been lost, tossed, and traded for the latest issue of Boys Life. So by the time they get to us, these kits aren't 100% complete. We disassemble each one, check each piece to make sure it's usable, and then reassemble them.

The most common missing items are the leather care cream, Scotch-Brite pads and boot wax. All of things you can pick up at the corner store. It's really the brushes and repair gear that is the real meat and potatoes, so we are offering a lite kit along side the full kits. Each kit is 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

Scuzzy, but good quality kit

I ordered the full kit, but it’s missing the red leather care cream (came with two of the grey creams instead). I followed the kstore boot care guide but substituted saddle soap for the red cream. It was able to bring a lot of life back to my very worn Austrian boots I got here many years ago. I didn’t use the wax or shine the boots, but they almost look new now. I also used the kit on a pair of the Czech boots that I purchased with the order. They looked fine when I started but a good cleaning and staining really revitalized them.

The kit itself is definitely used. The pouch is stained and has a milsurp stank, needed to be pretty thoroughly wiped off. The snap buttons on the pouches are green with corrosion. The two small brushes with wood handles are basically glued together with cream, though I imagine I could probably clean them up. The big 3 brushes are in good shape and honestly that’s probably the best value of the kit, the final brush for polishing is definitely used as well but still has life in it.

If you’ve bought black boots from here or elsewhere, this kit is a good value for taking care of them, though you may have to substitute some of the components of the kit.

Hey, we really appreciate the breakdown on the kit, as well as a recommended substitute for the red cream (any leather care cream found at a shoe store should do the trick), but we're sorry to hear it wasn't included with your bundle.

Please feel free to reach out to help@kommandostore.com, and we'll take care of you.

Good solid shoe cleaning kit

If you need the tools to make sure your boots and in return your feet are happy get this boots cleaning kit and shine away, be warned some of the brushes are stiff from being used so I recommend soaking them in hot water to remove the gunk.

Good product, even better customer support

Helped restore the life to some old jungle boots and will hopefully keep my new ones from reaching a breaking point. Was missing some components but reached out to customer support and they sent me a whole new kit free of charge. Cannot attest enough to how hassle free the support was, shout-out to James.
