HISTORY OF SHOE POLISH
The first form of shoe polish dates back into medieval times where a waxy product was made use to both softens and waterproof shoe. As leather rose in popularity in the 18th century, ‘shine’ became a known concept in regards to shoes and boots, back then referred to as ‘blacking’.
In 1795, the Warren brothers (Thomas and Jonathan) began to produce what we now refer to as shoe polish. It wasn’t until 1906 however that these products reached popularity as previously the sales as well as interest and association with sophistication was limited. In time however the practice of shoeshine boys in cities became commonplace.
The first shoe polish to resemble the modern varieties to primarily induce shine was created the British Commonwealth brands in 1889.
