Applicator brushes are used to apply shoe polish. Using a brush allows the polish to absorb better into the leather and into the area between the upper and the sole providing better protection from the elements.
As with our shine brushes the bristles are 100% horsehair. After using a polish you can use a soft cloth to clean the bristles for the next time. You might prefer to have a different brush for each color but of course it is still good to clean the brush after using, as well as possible.
The brushes are sold with black or neutral bristles and are 5 3/4" long.
