When we turned the page on throw-awayism and made a conscious effort to curtail our buying of things without considering things such as where and how items were made, what they are made of the processes involved, we soon realised that well made things need to be cared for. This is best illustrated with shoes. Good leather shoes.
We both have leather shoes that we've bought after a lot of consideration before parting with our money. Perhaps it is because of this that we are willing to do our bit to make them last. However, finding suitable leather care items is not always easy these days. Thankfully, we came across Supreme Shoe Care an online shop that stock a comprehensive range of products to make keep our leather goods in top-top shape.
We were delighted when Supreme Shoe Care not only sent us some SELVYT products to try out for ourselves, but also gave us quite an education on maintaining our good shoes. And we must admit that we've spent quite a few hours since diligently polishing our shoes to a splendid shine.
The kit that we were sent contained everything we could ever need to clean, treat, polish and then, (this is my favourite bit) buff our shoes.
