What it is is what it is
on June 9, 2010
I told my wife recently, after she bought me some new shoes, that I missed the Sunday mornings of my youth, before church, when my brothers and I all had to shine our shoes, using our dad's Kiwi polish and shoe brushes. So, she got me some shoe shine kit, I guess to make sure I had something to do. From a tactile, visual, and olfactory perspective, this brush and the polish bring it all back. And not just the memories. Taking care of your shoes is a good thing(tm). Watching the shine of the leather come back is a very satisfying experience. This brush is a big part of it. But remember, it ain't magic. This work is a labor of love, and the brushes require elbow grease to work, all of which reminded me of when I shined shoes in a golf clubhouse one summer at the age of 15; that is a less wistful memory. Still, these brushes are well made and cheap. How often do you get to say that any more?.
