Abbeyhorn restock

We’ve just received a restock of some of our most popular shoe care products by Abbeyhorn. Each product is an astounding piece of craftsmanship, made with the highest quality materials.

Abbeyhorn brushes are hand carved from Oxen horn. Each horn is uniquely different due to its color and texture. The process requires considerable skill of the horn worker from the first cut of the horn to ensure that the resultant shoehorn becomes a much-cherished item. Therefore the carver must work with the horn while carving to bring out the special quality of each, and no two are exactly alike.

These shoe brushes, suede brushes, and shoehorns will age beautifully, along with your shoe collection.

Saphir Medaille D’or

We’ve recently received new stock of our popular Saphir shoe care products. Saphir Medaille D’or products are quite simply the finest system of shoe care products available today. This exclusive line has its origins in formulations that have earned Saphir the award of the GOLD MEDAL, PARIS 1925.

To view the full selection of Saphir products, visit out Online Store HERE.

Saphir Rénovateur is possibly the most valuable shoe care product you can buy. It cleans, conditions, and shines all at once. It works on a variety of leathers, from shell cordovan, to rugged Chromexcel, to fine calfskin. Use it before shining or just as a rejuvenating application. This and an occasional application of wax polish is all the cordovan leather really needs to be maintained.

Saphir Wax products bring unmatched shine to your calfskin shoes. Composed of turpentine, vegetable waxes, animal and mineral fossils, its formula is unchanged and has not suffered the technical progress of chemistry such as the addition of silicones and resins.

Saphir Crème is an all-natural product meant for adding color and shine to shoes. Use it when correcting scuffs or darkening the color of your shoes. Use in conjunction with Rénovateur and Wax for the full Saphir shoe care system.

A large brush is an essential tool for shoe care. Use it for buffing shoes after polish application. Saphir’s large brush is made from 100% horse hair, densely packed into its wide brushing area for an easier, faster, and better looking shine. Look for Saphir’s Dauber and Jar Brush for the application of polish and use in hard to access areas of the shoe, such as the welt and tongue.

A shoe care box is a nice finishing touch to your collection of shoe care products. These boxes only get better with age and as you use this over the years to care for your shoes, they will develop a character of their own.
