A special shoe cream for a unique type of leather, Saphir Creme Cordovan is a must if you have shoes or other leather accessories made of cordovan. Cordovan is leather made from the hide of a specific type of horse and is highly prized for its closed pores that result in peerless weather resistance and a exclusive patina. Ordinary shoe polishes or creams contain turpentine which damages cordovan. This product contains beeswax and neatsfoot oil and no turpentine. At this time available only in colour black and mahogany - more colour selection to come in near future. Saphir is intimately familiar with the differences in leathers and works tirelessly to develop products that meet the needs of a wide variety of natural and synthetic materials. Ensure the longevity and beauty of your precious leathers by using the Saphir products made specifically for their requirements, available in Canada online through Valentino Garemi. How to use: Ensure that all loose debris and dust is removed from the shoes, boots or other cordovan items. Use appropriate Saphir cleaners, if necessary, to remove soiling, otherwise wipe down with a damp cloth. When dry apply the Saphir Creme Cordovan in a thin, even layer with a soft cloth or Saphir Pommadier Brush. Let dry and then buff with a soft cloth or brush to your desired shine.
