KIWI makes a variety of products that help extend the life of our shoes. For the upcoming fall and winter season, they sent me a shoe kit that includes new KIWI laces, KIWI Suede & Nubuck protector, KIWI Fast Acting Cleaner, KIWI Express Shine Sponge, and KIWI Protect-all - plus two $1 off coupons to use on any KIWI product, all in a handy little basket.
The KIWI Suede & Nubuck Protector is perfect for those fashionable nubuck boots teens like to wear. It shields shoes against water and stains through the fall and winter months. It can be used on backpacks, too. The protector is very easy to use - just spray the shoes, then re-apply after they have dried. KIWI recommends that the protector is also used after wearing the shoes in wet weather.
The KIWI Protect-all is a similar spray-and-go product that provides water and stain protection for leather and fabric shoes. If your shoes are new, a second application is recommended after the shoes are allowed to dry for 3 hours.
The KIWI Fast Acting Cleaner will help me keep the kids' sneakers in good shape. It even removes grass stains to keep sports shoes looking brand new. The cleaner is a foam that needs to stay on the sneakers for 10 seconds, then wiped dry with a clean cloth. The top of the cap is actually a plastic brush that helps with dirt clean up before using the foam.
I reviewed the KIWI Express Shine Sponge a couple of months ago. I've been very happy with this product because it provides instant shine with no effort at all. My heels, hubby's dress shoes, and my daughter's Mary Janes look picture perfect every day, thanks to KIWI's magic sponge!
Last but not least, the new KIWI laces replaced my daughter's old ones to freshen up the look of her old sneakers. Old, dirty laces can make a shoe appear to be in worse condition than it actually is. Replacing them is an easy, cost-effective way to make shoes last another season.
To help you take proper care of your shoes, KIWI are giving away a shoe kit, including all these great products.
