If there is one product every top bespoke shoemaker swears by, this is it. The Saphir Medaille D'Or Pate de Luxe Wax Shoe Polish is simply the best wax polish in the world and the product any serious shoe aficionado should have in his shoe care kit.
Containing seven different kinds of animal (beeswax) and vegetable (carnauba wax) waxes, Saphir Wax Polish easily produces an exquisite high-gloss shine while penetrating deep into the leather to nourish, soften, add shine and protect it against the elements.
While this magical product is easy and safe (its minimal pigmentation will not alter the color of your shoes) to use, please do give us a call should you have any questions about how to achieve maximum results when polishing your Cobbler Union shoes.
It is important to first clean your leather using Saddle Soap, or waterproof your shoes with Dubbin Graisse. Use Renovateur, as "Step 1", to deeply nourish the leather in order to keep soft and supple. "Step 2", apply Cream Polish using either a jar brush or chamois. Allow to dry, 5-10 minutes, then buff off using a horsehair brush or cotton chamois. "Step 3", applya small amount of Pate de Luxe wax polish using a lightly damp cotton chamois. Allow to dry (~5 minutes), then buff using a horsehair brush.
If you desire a higher-gloss shine, continue to apply tiny amounts of polish using the cotton chamois. Allow to dry. Then with a tiny drop of water, continue to buff the dried wax polish until the clouding disappears and a high-gloss shine emerges. Several applications will be required.
