First things first. Polishing is to shining as a skyscraper is to a sand castle. Yes, we will return your shoes shinier than before, but that is only part of the story. We will clean the leather surface of previous polish, nourish and rejuvenate, add a protective layer of wax, then build a mirror-like finish on the toe that will last a long time and be the envoy of the sartorial world. We are not satisfied with merely a bit of a brush up; we’ll give your shoes the full shebang of treatment and a long-lasting glaçage toe.
We normally turn shoes around within 2-3 days, though do let us know if you have an urgent deadline.
We first nourish the leather, then add a layer of protective wax, and finish with a mirror-like cap toe
Stunt shoes in these images (clockwise from right):
A similar approach to our Standard Polish, but the mirror finish is extended over more of the shoe to cover the rear and sides
We recommend this typically for special occasions and events, and only on simpler shoes such as wholecuts or classic cap toes.
