Shoe Care Kit


Three all natural formulas for the care of all leather shoes and accessories.

Each kit contains a vial of leather serum made from an avocado oil base that is excellent on textured and/or cracked leather, one jar of leather cream made from a beeswax base that is wonderful on smooth leather surfaces, removes salt stains, and provides weather protection, and one 3oz flask of shoe tonic made with a walnut oil based liquid to provide an overall polish/pick me up for all leather shoes.

Not for use on suede. Each kit also contains a piece of Italian wool flannel as a buffing cloth. All housed in a reusable wooden crate.

Each item found at DECEMBER THIEVES is lovingly crafted.  We work with small artisans and independent designers who follow small batch manufacturing practices.  For them this means working solo with a handful of studio assistants or with small family run workspaces to bring to life their creations.

For us this means high quality unique products in very small quantities and a true dedication to the transformative power of a product made with passion.  Nothing is mass produced, nothing that can be reordered on a whim, and when it runs out, it runs out.

Important to note the items you find online are one and the same as those found in our brick and mortar locations- so snatch them up while you can!
