The Benefits of Shoe Brushes

Shoe polish brushes serve more purposes than one. Not only do they help brush the dirt off your favourite shoes, but they also help add a shine to your shoes and enhance the look and colour. Shoe brushes come in many types, out of which boot brushes are the most common. There are also suede brushes for your special shoes. 

Majorly, shoe polish brushes are classified into primary brushes and secondary brushes. While the former serves the purpose of cleansing, polishing and providing a soft shine, the latter is mostly used to give a finishing touch to keep your shoes smooth and glowing. The types of bristles used in the brushes too make for a distinct classification, i.e. hard bristle and soft bristle shoe brushes. 

Below are some of the types of shoe brushes you can find and add to your wardrobe, for cleaner, prettier shoes. 

  1. Your shoe polishing brushes should always be divided into light-coloured brushes for lighter polishes and dark-coloured brushes for darker shoes. The best primary brush for your lighter shoes would be horsehair brushes, which are available in different shades of beige and light brown to apply lighter polish to all your shoes. 
  2. For all your darker shoes, go for the brown horsehair shoe brushes, which come with really strong bristles and are extremely purposeful whether you want to apply cream or polish to your shoes or even just dust them off. 
  3. For a finishing touch, go for a dauber brush. These brown and black shoe cleaning brushes are perfect to rub in the polish and also to give your shoes the required smoothness and shine. 
  4. Last but not least, the most important item in footwear maintenance is a shoe horn which helps to clean the insides of the shoe without causing any damage to the heel cap. Also, do not forget to add a shoe deodizer to keep your shoes smelling fresh and your feet healthy.

Shoe brushes let you clean dirt and dust off of your footwear before starting on cleaning and polishing it. Shoe cleaning brushes are a must-have product for your shoe kit. Your shoe kit should consist of a shoe shine dauber for polishing your footwear and a horsehair brush for spreading and thoroughly nourishing the material.

How do you brush shoes with polish?

Can I use a shoe brush for my formal leather shoes?

Yes, you can use a shoe polish brush on your formal leather shoes. The shoe brush lets you clean the surface of shoes and remove the debris off of it with ease. But you have to be careful while using a shoe brush on your leather footwear. Overusing it or polishing your shoes harshly might irreparably damage the fabric. So, it is recommended to brush softly and keep your shoes well-maintained.
