Where can I find blue shoe polish

I'm looking for blue shoe polish. Kiwi apparently makes it, but after checking local shoe stores, discount department stores, and drug stores, I can't find it. Any suggestions for where else I can look (either general store genres or specific places if you're familiar with the Detroit area), or, if that fails, a place to find it online without exorbitant shipping costs?

Shoe repair shops?


These guys have a $10 order minimum, but their shipping charges seem reasonable. They don't have the Kiwi blue, but they do have a zillion shades of Meltonian (which is actually a better product).

Maybe this would work for you: Lincoln Stain Wax Shoe Polish.

It's on the same page as Kiwi brands. (This is just a link I found when I did a search, so YMMV.)

a goth shop with a good selection of boots should have shoe polish in a wide array of colors. i'm not familiar with the detroit area, but i'm sure there are boot stores catering to the angsty crowd around there.

At one time, Marshall Field's in downtown Minneapolis had a big rack of colored shoe polishes in their basement shoe repair area. Possibly one of the Detroit area locations might be worth checking out?

Response by poster: Ah, forgot to mention I'm looking for the kind in a tin, so the one under the "Walgreens" link isn't quite the right thing (which Walgreens doesn't have). I'll check out the other suggestions, though. :)
