To be annoyed at Clarkes for selling purple shoes but not purple shoe polish?

Exactly that really. I bought some lovely purple shoes for my dd, after a couple of days of charging around in them they were already looking a little tired so popped back to Clarkes to buy some polish....but no, they don't stock any purple polish. White, red, pink etc. AIBU to expect them to stock polish for their shoes?

Google Woly Shoe Cream, it comes in loads of colours and is really good. I bought some purple to renovate my favourite handbag and it worked really well smile

I get mine in Timpsons, they've got loads of colours.

Shoe reheeling places general have a good range.

If you can't find purple, would you use neutral?

Just use neutral dubbin smile

I agree with Gurlwiththefrothycurl Woly is the best polish on the market and they have a huge range of colours, you can't go wrong with it.

Thanks 80sbabe, Woly totally renovated a really tatty handbag and it looks as good as new, even six months later. Will probably re-apply in another month or so. Brilliant stuff and it comes in loads of colours.

My DD had a lovely plum shade pair of shoes (a few years ago though) and we bought the polish at the same time (Clarkes).

Maybe it's just supply and demand?
