Shoe polish

£1.75£5.99

We’ve a couple of choices of polish for you to go with our great range of shoe brushes… The household name, Kiwi and an excellent US made one by Angelus (you can’t say no to that tin, can you?)

The Kiwi neutral polish is a 50ml tin and the Angelus “perfect satin wax shoe polish” brand, also in neutral, is an 88ml tin.

This is what Angelus say:

Angelus still uses the original formula created in 1907 by our founders. Angelus Wax comes in a convenient 3 oz snap open can. A blend of pure carnauba wax, beeswax, and the finest grade of other waxes and oils. Angelus Wax does more than just polish. It cleans, preserves, water-proofs, and restores a richer colour to faded footwear and leather gear. Carnauba wax, a well-established product for the auto and furniture polish industry, is also an excellent preserver for leather.

Angelus Shoe Polish was not even a dream when the young Greek immigrant, Paul T. Angelos, arrived at Ellis Island.  Making his way to Chicago, Paul shined shoes and saved enough money to go to Los Angeles.  After arriving in Los Angeles penniless, he secured a job at a large shine stand.  Paul saved enough money to open his own shine stand.  Through hard work and long hours, he was able to send money for his brothers, George and Louie, to join him.  Soon there were 14 employees and three shine stands; Sixth Street – opposite the Hayward Grill, Fifth Street – opposite the Alexandria Hotel, and one next door to The Pantages Theatre.  After being crowned, “King of the Bootblacks”, Paul was able to make the return trip to Greece to marry his sweetheart.
