    The reason Cherry Blossom doesn't shine up is that it is pants!

    Kiwi Parade Gloss is the way to go for Parade Boots.
     
  6. S10. Are you in distress, mate? Your Flag's upside down. 8O

    Kiwi every time, though.
     

  7. Completely off topic,but how can one see the difference of the UJ being the right way up or upside down ?

    On topic; Kiwi is the way forward!
     
  8. Broad white diagonal next to the staff should be uppermost. Otherway round is a distress signal according to convention. Used in the plot of one of Jeffry Archer's novels IIRC>
     
  9. 70p? been in my local asda and they only sell parade gloss for 1.50 a tin. cant find any normal kiwi.
