For those that may not realize, there is shoe polish and then there is SHOE POLISH. The French Shoe Polish Powerhouse, Saphir, would fall into the latter category making what is often considered some of the finest shoe polish there is. And for good reason too. You won’t know this without ever having first-hand experience with it, but when comparing the products of Saphir to the ones that you find in the corner shops for a couple of bucks (you all know the brand), you can immediately see and feel the difference. And more importantly, are the long-term effects and how your leather will thank you for it by aging with grace instead of prematurely from dried-out leather. If you have never tried Saphir, then do yourself and your shoes a favor and grab a tin or two of the polish. Personally speaking, while I know that there are other great brands out there, Saphir is all that I use on my own shoes, as you can see from the hero shot above.
Thanks to Saphir, who is our Main Partner for the London Super Trunk Show (since year one!), we are able to host not only the main event of the actual show altogether but also both the contest for Shoe Shine and Patina World Championships. We owe a lot to the Saphir and want to thank them for their continued participation to make this great shoe event possible. If you want to thank them too, help by finding your closest retailer and trying them out.
Please do come to the show to see their products first hand and stock up on your shoe care needs as they do come and sell on the day. As most vendors offer, I am sure there will be some deals to be had!
The London Super Trunk Show 2012 will be held at Showcase.co on Saturday, May 7th, 2022
Saphir in the US can be found at Kirby Allison
