Who?

That is not an account of mine.

The best places on-line would be:

The Hanger Project
Franco's
A Suitable Wardrobe
One The Fly
Leffot

Just about everyone is waiting for me to get product back to them....have 2 pallets that we have been waiting for that are due to be delivered today. Still waiting here for Roadway to arrive though.....

Everyone will be filled back in next week.

Ahhh......got it now.

No, Saphir Medaille D'Or is being distributed to brick and mortar shoe shops and select on-line merchants. The regular Saphir line is being made available to shoe repair shops by my friend Don Kanners and Isis Brands in Detroit. I am not sure of his activity with shoe repair shops.

I believe in rubbing it well into the leather. I also use shoe trees. All of my shoes have been soaked in the rain and left to naturally air dry away from the heat.

I've been buying and wearing top of the line shoes for 40 years and I've never seen this sort of crack. In fact, it shouldn't happen with cheap leather shoes. Sned them back and get a replacement.
