Email me. We can work something out. It's just difficult for us to ship one small thing via USPS. We normally try to avoid them.
I'll have to try this also. Still working on trying to produce a finish like this!I had a nice mirror shine (nothing like benhour's) and then it cracked! So depressing. So, I guess I'll have to strip if off with the Saphir Reno'Mat and start all over again. However, given the amount of time (literally hours) to produce, I am a little reluctant.Has anyone tried to use a navy polish to produce a mirror finish on black shoes? I tried this. It produce a nice patina and hue...

If you do that, you'll probably end up stretching the entire shoe. You would have to use a shoe tree large enough to fit really tightly into the shoe in order to apply pressure onto that one area...Can't you just spray the shoe with the leather stretcher and then walk around with them? Let your foot do the stretching. It will be more accurate than if you use a shoe tree.
You may be right about stretching, but I still love the look of a leather loafer! And black should give good use since it doesn't show dirt as easily as a brown. Spray those babies!! BTW - we have the Saphir MDO Suede Spray in black. It's the only color that we have... black didn't sell as well as the browns, hence why it is still in stock. But any waterproofing spray should work. We actually are now stocking the Terrago Suede Spray because there is still no commitment...
You might try a Hermes Red or Mahogany. You can see some additional swatches here: http://www.hangerproject.com/closet/blog/cat/Saphir/. Hermes Red is shown in the top-right of the photograph of the piece of paper. And if you scroll down you can see swatches of Mahogany and Hermes Red together on the Allen Edmond Shoe Polish Colors post.And remember that you can mix the colors to create any shade. Sometimes there just isn't a "perfect match." In these instances, you can...
Ha. No comment.
Works incredible as edge dressing. Very easy to control.
