01 Black - Saphir Medaille D'Or Cordovan Cream Polish 75ml
Saphir Cordovan Cream Shoe Polish is specially formulated with beeswax and six other nutrient waxes. It contains a high concentration of pigments (almost twice the concentration of ordinary polishes) and neatsfoot oil to penetrate deeper into leather to maintain suppleness and sheen. It is specifically developed to nourish and protect Cordovan leather.
Cordovan leather is obtained from horses mainly imported from Cordoba in the United States and crossed with wild horses of Dakota. Only a small part of the back of the horse skin is served to make shoes and other luxury leather goods, the rest being used for furniture. The skins are stored for months in barrels of oil. The natural colour is blood red – a very dark burgundy. Shinki-Hikaku Co of Japan and Horween of Chicago are regarded as the two biggest suppliers of Cordovan leather. These very dense and hyper-resistant leathers require regular maintenance with specialist products.
The Cordovan Cream Shoe Polish is designed for Cordovan leather shoes.
- Remove any dust or dirt from the shoe
- Spread the cream on the leather and massage gently using circular motions
- Let the leather soak up the cream for 5 minutes
- Polish with a soft cotton cloth
