Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1758post #26356 of 289334/3/16 at 9:22ampost #26357 of 289334/3/16 at 9:28ampost #26358 of 289334/3/16 at 9:36ampost #26359 of 289334/3/16 at 9:38am
I guess dont buy the ferrari if you dont want to pay for the fuel...
I do also use saphir cream polish and bick 4.
I rarely use cream polish on my shoes (maybe once a year, or twice depending on wear). I use bick4 more often depending on when I remember.
I mean compared the cost of the shoes even the "expensive" saphir is a very minor costpost #26360 of 289334/3/16 at 9:39amQuote:
Couldn't agree with you more good sir. I struggle with the concept of why some met cut corners in the wrong places. Like refusing to invest in good socks or cleaning/care products for their four figure shoes. I don't know what the cost is around the world...but my saphir creams are ~$12.50, Reno ~$20, and waxes ~$8. A little goes a long way as I've had mine for well over 2 years and I've barely made a dent.post #26361 of 289334/3/16 at 10:00ampost #26362 of 289334/3/16 at 11:33amQuote:Originally Posted by MrVenneri

The pricing of the Saphir products is not outrageous, especially for those who can afford the four figure pricing on shoes. As long as your shoes are getting nourishment and protection from the products you are using, that's the bottom line.
As far as socks are concerned, a better quality of materials and the design is what makes up the higher cost. The cheaper stuff tends to be cheap for a reason.

I agree with @Concordia. GlenKaren products are phenomenal. While I find shoe polishing/conditioning to be highly relaxing and soothing, the scent of the orange oil also provides somewhat of an "aroma therapy" experience.
With that aside, the natural ingredients in both the polishes and conditioner are great! Really keeps the shoes in great condition + provides a nice shine to it. You also don't have to worry about any toxic ingredients as well!post #26369 of 289334/3/16 at 6:36pm
Regarding polish and for what it's worth, I'm 99.9% sure that TheShoeSnob shoe care products are rebranded Saphir MDO. I recently got the Mink Oil Renovator, cream polish, and wax polish. are made by the same company that makes Saphir (Avel). On top of that, the sticker that tells the color is the same as Saphir. Good way to save a few bucks!post #26370 of 289334/3/16 at 6:52pmQuote:Originally Posted by rbhan12

I heard the same thing about the Lobb products but to me the consistency and smell of the cream polish are different (bw lobb and saphir), but who knows. Maybe they are reformulated to match the colors lobb has.
Mainly got the matching lobb cream for the museum colors bc i was afraid i would mess up the finish but i dont know if it makes a difference from just using regular saphir products. Plus if you have any decent relationship with your SA you can get some free polish for your 1k+ shoes.
