I am sure that this has been talked about before, but there is a real need for people to appreciate the differences between Saphir Renovateur and Saphir Renomat. Those differences are incredibly important. Yours, as always, Munky.
 Goodness! What beautiful shoes. Could you not contact Lobb to ask them how to care for these?
 Lovely shoes, Simply!  I have found them to be very comfortable, very quickly. Mine fit very well around the heel, which, as I understand it, is a sign of good design.
