Boot Black Collections Cream is formulated with far more color pigment than their standard cream. Use on your shoes’ heels and toes for an instant burnish. It doesn’t take much — just a dab will give you that antiqued finish.

Deer Bone Restock

We’ve just restocked our popular deer bone for polishing cordovan. The oils inside this deer bone, when rubbed into shell cordovan leather, will restore uniformity to the color and smooth over scratches. It can even remove some small creases and welts. This is the secret weapon for polishing shell cordovan shoes.

Abbeyhorn restock

We’ve just received a restock of some of our most popular shoe care products by Abbeyhorn. Each product is an astounding piece of craftsmanship, made with the highest quality materials.

Abbeyhorn brushes are hand carved from Oxen horn. Each horn is uniquely different due to its color and texture. The process requires considerable skill of the horn worker from the first cut of the horn to ensure that the resultant shoehorn becomes a much-cherished item. Therefore the carver must work with the horn while carving to bring out the special quality of each, and no two are exactly alike.

These shoe brushes, suede brushes, and shoehorns will age beautifully, along with your shoe collection.
