I find that interesting because with the use of renovateur on a mirror shined toe in just a small amount and swirling it around it actually helps create a mirror shine. You actually start getting that slick glassy resistance. I feel it is great for renovating a mirror shine. Unless whatever is in that Saphir jar in that picture isn't renovateur and just a regular neutral polish or something else entirely.
patric if you have seen about 5-6 pages back i have said that i do this (with renovateur-cremeuniversal(if you overdoit mirror shine ll go off) or with cream polish( always small amount)) to refinish the mirror shine and maintain it once a month!! it really works and with a great effect!!!
i want to ask something to all the great guys here!! what do you do on a brand new pear of shoes before wear them or after a couple of wears ? at your opinion to make them last longer and stay as new as long as possible? ( I took the occasion of a brand new pair of shoes just arrived today at my place as a gift for my birthday)
lets start with what i do :
1) brush the shoes
2) apply creme universal of saphir especially at the areas of the shoe that ll flex ( or dubbin -depends on the kind of the leather)
3) brush to shine them
4) apply wax polish using a lighter at the bottom of the shoes to make them more water resistant (wont do this yet on this shoes cause here we are at the beggining of the summer)!! i have used collor dye but i dont think it is doing anything than hardening the first layer(0,5 mm)
5) rarely do a patina if i would like to!
i have some shoes for about -8-9 years and they look quit good til today i suppose
looking forward for your replys
