posticon The Shoe Polish


This was a Top-Secret Project of mine..... As you all know The Shoe Polish is a bottle of Shinola "Dress Parade" Brown shoe polish. Armed with that knowledge I knew I saw a bottle of Shinola Dress Parade Brown polish on ebay. Once I had confirmed that the bottle shape was right and it had a 100% show correct plastic cap I could drop a bid on this sweet Object.

Once I had the bottle I had to clean it out due to the old polish being dried in a clump. Let me tell [sign in to see URL] yr old shoe polish smells like hell !! The fortunate part was the polish washed out with soap and water while I had to be careful not to damage the original label. Once cleaned out I filled the bottle with Kiwi Brown Premiere Shine Ultra-Brilliant Premium Wax Formula Liquid Polish.

And here it [sign in to see URL] The Shoe Polish Object that is 100% show correct for a total cost of about $18 and filled with REAL shoe polish!.

To all members:

           I have a much improved Shinola label if you need it. It is 100% show correct and I have two versions of it. One is like new and the other is aged.

PM me if you need it.

Hey, I just scored what I think is the correct Shinola bottle from Ebay. It looks like the right shape and is brown polish, but I'm not sure about the label. I'll let you know when I get it.

Re: The Shoe Polish


Yes, very impressive. All you have to do is put on one of the founders very well crafted labels and you will have the first 100% paulian shoe polish bottles. If it bothers you altering this antique bottle, just tape the new label over the old one and have the tape join around the back. That way you can have the look and not be damaging a piece of antiquity.

Re: The Shoe Polish


To see the listing, go to Google product search and type in “shinola bottle”. I can’t tell how long it was listed, but Randy was the third person to look at it. He obviously beat everyone else to the punch. It was just a matter of being at the right place at the right time to snatch up a rare item. The appearance of the bottle was a statistical anomaly and Randy finding it was a combination of diligence and timing. There was nothing unusual about the search criteria.
