This is the best shoe polish in the world, as it has been for decades. It covers up any scuff, and makes the leather on your shoe look brand new. If you're the military sort who is into spit-shining, Kiwi is just what the sergeant ordered -- and you can use the little lid to hold your water! The product is flammable, and can be used for "burn shining," although that method can cause the polish to be applied too thickly. And know that it doesn't taste very good, it's not the kind of shoe polish you will want to get on your lips (and don't put your fingers in your mouth, if you get any on your fingers). All in all, your shoes will look fantastic after you have applied the Kiwi.
