Great to use
Gives great results and shines the shoes without damaging the leather. It feels so easy to use as the bristles don’t present a lot of resistance. The handle is comfortable in the hand. Some bristles fall off at first but nothing alarming.

I purchased my brush from Von Mar. This is a quality brush that does a wonderful job. It is large and substantial but does not feel too big. It is perfect and covers lots of space with each stroke. For 3-4 dollars more than other cheaper brushes the quality is far superior. Only regret not buying sooner. Get it. You will be happy you did.

Allen Edmonds Horse hair shine brush
This brush has a good build quality and I have not noticed that it sheds just yet. There are different types of brushes and constructed of different types of bristles, make sure you are using the right one for the right job. I use horse hair for a low luster shine, goat's hair for a polishing shine, and pig or boar bristle for cleaning the dirt and debris off of my shoes. A good brush is something that will last a lifetime and if properly cared for will never damage the finish on your fine leathers. Take a moment and periodically clean the build up from the bristles and your brush will serve you for years.
I especially like this brush because of the light colored bristles. I can tell which color shoes it has been used on and I have a different brush for darker colored shoes. I never interchange the brushes because I do not want any polish transfer from the brush to the finish of my shoes.

Hi, I have a shell cordovan wallet. Will this brush be appropriate for that leather?
You can use horsehair brushes on Shell Cordovan, however the size of this brush is intended for larger items like shoes which may make it difficult to brush a wallet. We suggest considering our horsehair daubers for smaller items. A soft cloth can also be used.
Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Is it common for these brush to "shed" for the first few uses?
I ordered two of these. Both of them tend to "shed" a few upon use. Is this normal for the first few uses?
Same thing happened to me. I would expect this to be normal on the first few uses.

Different color handles?
I noticed the kit comes with two brushes with different color handles. Is it possible to buy two brushes (one with a light and one with a dark color handle?).
Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.
While color variations are common depending on the part of the wood the handle is cut from, the Horsehair Shine Brush can only be ordered in the natural wood color offered online.
Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

I have used a brush once with natural polish but want to now use it with Chili. Will there be an issue with this? An threat to the leather or color of the shoe?
You should be able to go to a darker tint without any problem. but, once you do, you cannot return to use it on a lighter shade; that will definitely cause problems.

How do you clean these brushes?
I had used one with a natural colored polish but want to now use it with Chili colored.
I use different brushes for different colors. I have one brush for black polish, one for brown, chili, and one for neutral. If you want to be assured your neutral brush remains neutral, don't use anything else. This may sound extreme, but it works great for me. I don't want to change the color tones of my shoes.
