Simple and used polish and brush sets. With some cleaning these will be great! Expect them to be grimy and covered in grease, but functional.
Very functional and complete as a kit, for a price you cannot beat! Keep in mind you are not getting a new kit, these are used, the brushes are in a state as you would expect them if used 7-8 times. Most supplies are 60-80 percent there, otherwise. My first order came with some missing items, but the customer service more than made it up by sending a second kit, with everything inside, but again, with all items used 60-80 percent. You will need to put some elbow grease and clean the brushes, just as you will surely have to do every time after you use them.
More than a shoe care kit
Review byJim K.
Simply put, this is a good deal, the pouch alone , without contents, is ideal for a small toiletry kit or such. The kit has a "shine" brush, "clothes" brush, and a "shoe" brush, a special shape stick for cleaning soles of the boot or shoe, a block of leather treatment, a double spool of green and OD thread, 4 nice quality needles, a "polish" applicator brush, a "grease" applicator brush, and a couple of tubes of polish, black, neutral, or both. A handy item that is a must have, especially at the price.
I bought 2 of these mainly for just the polish, but I was blown away by all of the other stuff you get with each kit. 3 large cleaning scrubs/brushes, 2 applicators, 2-3 polishing cream tubes, thread and buttons. Plus, the kits themselves are pretty large.
Its pretty much all there, but with one kit I got 2 tubes of polish, the other kit had 4. One kit was dated '82, other kit didn't have a date. Most of all, the polish still works and I got a good shine on my boots!
a little overkill
This kit is awesome but a little overkill I mean you can absolutely keep your boots alive for a long Time with this kit but I am mainly using it as a shoe polish kit for witch it is amazing however for the price of one ton of kiwi oil you get an entire kit witch honestly just the bag it comes with is worth it I've turns mine into a toiletry kit and its great to have such an organized. Kit in my daypack or bug out bag
item arrived in new condition
had ordered two of these kits earlier when I received them they were not complete and were not in good condition, when I spoke with customer service they quickly sent me out two more which were in perfect condition, this company does stand behind there products, and I give the a 5-star for customer service, thanks for taking care of me like a customer
One Complete Kit
I bought this on a whim and I'm glad I did. This is one complete kit and for the price it is one heck of a deal. Everything was in great condition and it actually works and polishes really well. I'm impressed.
Good kit to get it had everything i needed 1 brush was caked with black shoe polish but it cleaned up very happy
Shine them boots solider
Great kit mine was complete. has enough items to shine three different color of shoe/leather Black , Brown, White. Nice item to restore old military leather Items.
Well worn but not totally useless!!!
I'm something of a mens clothing expert, including the finest dress shoes and outdoor gear. Their is no way any of the brushes(with the exception of the soft polishing cloth) will touch my Romano Martegani's! They may work on my GI boots after cleaning with mineral spirits.
This was clearly a case of getting what i payed for. I was hoping for an UBER bargain and it was still an awesome deal and I'm happy but also disappointed. It's a whole kit for the price of a CharBucks fancy coffee! The bottom line is this kit is VERY WORN. I'm praying that mineral spirits will help the brushes that are caked with old polish/creme.
. It does come with 2 tubes of high quality Black schuhcreme(ShoeCream) 1 of which is almost gone and the other which is full and sealed(sweet). Perfect for G.I. boots.
To bad I don't have Swiss military surplus clothes to go with the buttons...lol.
You get more than your moneys worth
Wow Just Wow I love this kit it has so many options to fix, repair, or shine your boots. I was amazed at all the stuff you get with this kit.
3 big brushes
2 small brushes
1 polishing rag
2 different kinds of shoe polish
some kind of crevice cleaning tool
and other stuff I can't think of at the moment
The bag appears to be very durable and is begging to be used.
Depends on what you need it for.
At first I though I might have a problem with buying too much military surplus when I received this. However, I am surprised at how many times I use mine. What separates this kit from others is the amount of brushes you receive with it. Mine came with two soft, one hard rectangular brushes, and two soft toothbrush style brushes. These kits also come with a wax stick labeled FIX on it for smoothing out scuffs in leather, it seems to work. I use the brushes to clean mud off of my shoes before polishing them. If you live in southeast PA you know our Spring typically consists of a lot of rain, and that along with the PA clay makes mud, sticky mud. The nylon brush that come with it is perfect for knocking the mud off. I purchased a few just for the brushes, which I use for cleaning things around the house and in the yard. The price of this thing is worth it for the brushes alone. However, the only down side is that I had to clean the brushed free of shoe polish before using them with mineral spirits. I never used the semi dried up shoe polish that comes with them; yep I keep a few cans of Kiwi brand in mine.
