There’s hardly a thing of our daily needs so heavily exposed internal and external efforts as the shoe, with which we persistently meet the pavements. It’s amazing that a leather shoe can keep up with the average work-load of 5 miles a day. But that is not self-evident even for a well-made pair. Little, but regular care is the only requirement that should be conceived and executed as a ritual of respect, because leather lives. Johnston&Murphy arranged a generous shoe care kit that packs all the essentials a gentleman’s wardrobe should reveal in urgent cases. The kit comprises the J&M exclusive ultra-moisturizing lanolin-based shoe cream in black and cordovan, two brush applicators, purifying leather balm, two shine mitts, shoehorn and horsehair brush in a classical cedar boy that hides a built-in foot stand.
