Many of you know that I’m an 11 year US Army veteran. For all 11 of those years I wore your standard black army combat boots:
In the last 6 years or so they’ve changed the uniform and boots to the sueded desert style-but back in my time we wore the classic black. And if you wear black combat boots, you use black Kiwi shoe polish to spit shine them!
You also light the wax on fire. . . but that’s another story.
So you might say that I have a long standing relationship with Kiwi. I can’t even NAME another brand of shoe polish! Kiwi IS shoe polish as far as I am concerned (which is saying a lot because as you all know I am NOT normally a brand loyal type).
And shoe polish is important. Do you know WHY the Army was big on polishing boots? Yes-there was a small aspect of pride & attention to detail involved-but the main reason that the Army insisted on polished boots is because it makes them LAST. A well polished boot has a certain amount of water resistance. The leather stays supple. The leather doesn’t crack or split.
By polishing your boots (or your shoes) you protect your investment.
Frugal livings is not only about spending less. It is also about making what you have last as long as possible. Kiwi shoe polish and frugal living are a natural combination!
