London, UK — 13 May 2017 | The Equerry Premier Shoe Shiner is well on the way to achieving its target of raising £30,000 on Kickstarter. This remarkable and truly British invention promises to make it easier to give shoes the ultimate shine. Previously, shoe polishing has not been attained without an exorbitant amount of elbow-grease. Equerry is the first shoe shining device to offer that lustrous shine quickly and easily, using a powerful rotating horse hair brush.
“I spend a decent amount of money on high quality shoes that I want to last me a good few years. That means I want to look after them and keep them looking their best, but shoe polishing is such a hassle and makes a lot of mess,” explained Equerry’s inventor, Anthony O’Ferrall, “One day, whilst battling with the old-fashioned polishing kit, I thought ‘there must be a better way’. That’s when I came up with the idea of a handheld USB rechargeable product for rapidly polishing shoes with no mess or hassle.”
Equerry is the world’s first USB rechargeable shoe shining device with a built-in polish reservoir. The handheld shoe polisher has a specially patented design which has been made possible through unrivalled British design and engineering with an uncompromising approach to innovation, quality and excellence. The natural horse hair brush does an exceptional job, polishing the leather shoe surface at a rotational buffing speed of 100 revolutions per minute.
“We spent a lot of effort researching and developing a fantastic wax polish within the replaceable capsule inside the device. One capsule will give you at least thirty polishes, ensuring that your shoes will be well-nourished and have a great lasting shine,” Anthony explained, “The capsule holds less than 100ml so you can take it on a plane as hand luggage. At the other end of Equerry is the brush that rotates due to a powerful but small electric motor. The motor is specially designed to provide the right power to turn the brush even when you press it onto the leather and to provide the correct speed of rotation to avoid any polish flicking off.”
Equerry is soon to become a staple element of a gentleman’s travelling kit, whether for business or pleasure. Equerry also makes the perfect gift for special occasions and will arrive just in time for Christmas. The sponges and brush heads of Equerry are easily replaceable. The polish capsule can be changed when it runs out or to change the polish color, which will be available in brown, black and neutral.
All Anthony needs now is support for his crowdfunding campaign to achieve the required funds to setup for production and produce the first batch. In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one Equerry shoe shiner starting at just £39.
