Kiwi Shoe Care Review and Giveaway...

Cool For School Giveaway #31
Thanks to the folks at KIWI Shoe Care, we recently got to review this nifty basket full of wonderful shoe care products:

About KIWI:
"Passion for shoes," that’s what KIWI is all about. We know that shoes are a key part of personal grooming, and therefore a reflection of who we are to the outside world. We also understand that shoes can be expensive and that keeping them in good repair is a better means of extending the life of your favorite pair of shoes. We believe that not only do people love their shoes but also each pair provides us with a different way to express ourselves. Stylish sneakers for Saturday afternoon, strappy sandals with the perfect black dress or polished leather lace-ups for the boardroom, we all have a style and we all have a shoe to suit it.
KIWI, caring for shoes since 1906.

It’s no secret children perform better when they look and feel their very best. But as children are preparing to return to school this fall, moms and dads are getting ready for the financial hit all of the back-to-school shopping will take on their wallets. One way parents can help children put their best foot forward this fall – and to make the most of this year’s clothing budget – is to make sure their shoes stay clean and new, and protected from the harsh elements – rain, snow, sleet, etc. Caring for your child’s shoes takes only a few minutes for long-lasting protection and savings that can last through the school year. There are simple wallet-friendly products and steps every mom can take to extend the life of her kids’ shoes while still ensuring they look good." Save the Suede. If your child wears winter suede boots, consider protecting that investment to get them ready for the upcoming cold weather. Products like KIWI Suede & Nubuck Protector & KIWI Protect-All create an invisible shield designed to weather the storm and protect against water and stains so that boots look newer for more than just one school season.Keep Sneakers White. KIWI Fast Acting Cleaner will allow you to keep your child’s sneakers in tip-top shape. It’s designed to swiftly and effectively remove grass stains from sneakers to keep them looking new all the time – just the way they looked when you first bought them.
Change the Laces. Old dirty laces can make a shoe appear to be in worse condition than it actually is. Change sneaker laces now and then to keep your child’s shoes looking newer and fresher. Consider laces that are strong, abrasion resistant and long-lasting.
Shine it Up. KIWI Express Shine Sponges are the perfect solution for a busy household. Just like parents, kids need to keep their shoes looking shiny and new especially when there is a special function at school like a concert or dance. With KIWI Express Shine, moms can easily and completely shine their kids shoes no matter how much – or how little – time they have.

What we thought: What better way to start the back-to-school season than by tidying up those shoes...KIWI has all the products you could possibly need to lace, shine, protect and clean nearly any type of footwear! We have been KIWI users for a while now and were thrilled to have the chance to try out some products we'd never used before. All of the KIWI products we reviewed we easy-peasy to used and made a huge difference in the look of each pair of shoes we used them on. I especially loved the attached brush head on the sneaker cleaner! The protect-all was perfect for B's leather work boots that are always getting wet(and soooo expensive to replace!!) The Express Shine sponge is one of our favorites...even the kiddos love to use this one:) We were 100% pleased with each and every KIWI product!! ABCD Diaries gives KIWI shoe care an A+ and our Cool For School Seal of Approval!!

Buy It: You can find KIWI Shoe Care products at most grocery stores, drug stores, mass merchandisers (such as Wal-Mart) as well as many shoe repair stores.
Win It: The folks at KIWI have generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader their own basket of shoe care goodies!! To enter, tell us which product you are most excited to use!
