Polishing your shoes is an important part of taking care of them and making sure they last as long as possible. There isn’t a better or more luxurious way to store your waxes, creams, and brushes than in boxes and travel pouches from La Cordonnerie Anglaise. They make what are simply the finest shoe shine kits available. Each comes with a selection of creams and horsehair brushes for you to get started. These kits will only get better with age, as they take on a character of their own, and are something to pass among generations.
There isn’t a more luxurious way to bring your shoes to a shine than by using one of these polish mitts from Edward Green. They’re lightweight and compact, and perfect for travel or keeping in a desk drawer. And since they’re made of shearling and calfskin, they’ll last for years, no cleaning required.
We’ve been meaning to post some gorgeous MTO shoes by Gaziano & Girling for a while. Set your gaze on these babies and image what it’s like to slip a pair on your feet.

Leffot now stocks a number of new 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.T
he dauber brushes are carved from bone and come in two color bristles. They’re excellent for applying polish to those hard to reach areas. And lastly this handsome brush with inlaid horn is ideal for shining shoes or for use as a clothes brush.
These shoe brushes, suede brushes, daubers, and button hooks will age beautifully, along with your shoe collection.

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.

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.
