I have actually never had anybody else shine my shoes, but the people doing the shining look like they do a good job whenever I am in there. I'll have to give it a go if I can do a Saphir polish.
I picked up a pair that I had resoled with JR soles on Friday, but Nick had already left for the day. I brought a friend along and would have loved it if he had explained what he did to the shoes. I brought in some To Boot shoes that were cement jobs and I think Nick had them redone, but the details of which I'm not exactly sure about, but would love for him to explain if he has some time. I haven't gotten around to taking pictures yet, but will do so when I get a chance.
The JR resole with front and rear rubber taps cost me $126 with no shoe trees.
Also picked up a jar of Saphir light brown cream polish.
Nick was telling me about the shoe shine with the Saphir products and as far as I know they're the only ones around that do it.
