it was my pleasure to shake your hand
I bought mine from this website http://www.shoecaresupplies.com/Shoe_Brushes_s/24.htm
Not a bad purchase. Like the size of them.
Would suggest getting one for each color polish you have.
You are paying for the logo, to be sure, but you're also paying for a large brush with long horsehair bristles. Generally, you always want horsehair bristles. But the Kiwi horsehair brushes that are everywhere, including Amazon, are 1" to 2" too short in every dimension. The bristles are on the short side, and the dimensions of the brush handle are about 5" by 2". You ideally want a brush that is more like 7-8" by 3", with longer bristles. The reason for this is that covering a large swath of the shoe when you brush makes shoe care much, much faster, and allows you to care for your shoes in a more thorough manner with less effort.
That being said, you probably shouldn't buy the Alden brushes, as they're overpriced. If you're willing to spend more than $10 for a brush, then check out the Kent Brushes eBay store. Kent Brushes are reputed to be the best out there, but they're on the steep side at retail. Their company-run eBay store often has their excellent brushes -- with maybe a cosmetic defect here or here -- at deeply discounted prices.
