Massdrop is running the Santos chelsea boot again. Not personally interested, as warmer weather is soon going to come to California, but thought I would share for my stateside brethren.

Hi guys, I've recently bought a pair of double monks in Wine Shadow and I was wondering which color of cream/wax from Saphir I should use. I have medium brown and burgundy, do you think any of these would do the trick or is there a better match? Thanks.
You'll probably need a mixture of Saphir's Hermes Red and Cognac creme polish, as the Wine Shadow patina is a mixture of red and orange hues. If were to choose one, Hermes Red will be the closest colour.

New Carlos Santos loafers from skoaktiebolaget for the summer. They are breaking in nicely so far. Last is very good for my flat feet with narrow heels.

I use the 1925 pommadier 02 neutral works good so far.
Hello,
I have the double monks in wine patina as well, and I use saphir 1925 pommadier neutral too. I used it like 3 times and the last time I got the impression that it removed the patina a little bit leaving some "white dots"...
Did you experience that?
I saw in another post that only Bick conditioner should be used on CS patina shoes, what do you think about that?
A last question: what can I do to recolor the white dots I have currently on my shoes?
Thanks in advance for your replies.

Hey, the toe area was nice for me, however it was a little narrow in the beginning on the sides (widest part of my foot). I find the 234 last more comfortable.

Hey sorry for the late reply, I didn't see the notification.

So far my wine patina looks great and I have had no white spots. It might be a sign that you have been applying too much polish.

When I was in the London Super Trunk Show and i talked to Saphir they suggested 2 colors to maintain the patina. However I am not that comfortable or experienced yet. For the white dots, it depends on the area they are in. I attached the pics of the suggested colors from Saphir (but I would ask again maybe on their Instagram!).

A suggestion would be to take it to a professional cobbler or patina maker and get some advice or have it done for you.

Hello,
Actually I contacted Carlos Santos support, they said that I am using the correct product. They advised for that case to remove the existing waxes with Alcohol (I asked then if I can use Saphir Renomat and they said yes), then use a mixture of Saphir Pommadier Cream in Burgundy and Neutral shades.

Sounds about right, I use the renovateur about twice a year for deep cleaning. The cap toe is burnished so in those areas use the neutral one!

Any thoughts on this pair of Adelaide?

Was thinking of wearing for office and also what type of polish to maintain the patina.

I recently came across this shoe

https://www.skoaktiebolaget.com/collections/carlos-santos/products/carlos-santos-derby-in-brown-suede-with-dainite-sole

Something about, that I just really like them. I think it’s a perfect versatile travel shoe

But the problem is that my size (UK 10 on wider/generous lasts and UK10.5 on narrow ones) is not available. I have looked in a couple of places. But can’t find them on any other site .

Can someone help me out finding this in my size.

Any help would be much appreciate.

Regards AJ

Hey, I really like this shoe too. Unfortunately you will not probably find it elsewhere. The minimum order pair is 10 for CS shoes (i plan to sell them soon in my shop) and the only way would be to have a GMTO as far as i know. I really like this suede color as well, I got a pair of sneakers from them.
