Shoes are a little more complex than we know, maybe it is because they too have a sole (LOL, I had to do that.). It can be a tricky task to find a Shoe Cleaning Kit that is suitable for all of your shoes. Your suede shoes need a Soft bristled brush to clean its upper as it is prone to scratches if cleaned with a hard brush, On the other hand, the sole of the shoe is the home for all the dirt and bacterial, so the best way to clean it is by using the Hard bristled Brush. The midsole needs a medium brush to clean it perfectly and thoroughly.
If only there was a way to get all these brushes and also a good quality Cleaning Solution to take out all the dirt and stains from the shoe in one single Kit, Oh wait, THERE IS- The SHOEGR Ultimate Shoe Cleaning Kit.
