    That leather looks stiff and, reading through the auction is states the presence of a "flexible fiber insole". Pass.

    Thanks. I am still finding them 'interesting' and buying 'interesting' things on ebay is my weakness...

    In turn, I passed by to collect my order this morning. I liked their service and I'm having them replace the heels of a pair of vintage slip-ons. They seem quite proud of their online word-of-mouth pulling power

    I intend to buy some Renovateur when the re-order comes in

    So, got all my Saphir today... all great, except one jar smashed to bits during the journey (bordeaux) and got shards of glass and cream all over everything else in the box. Had to spend 45m wiping down the other jars... not too pleased. But I wrote them politely, so I hope they follow up good.

    Do your Saphir Beauté du Cuir jars have relatively big hollows created by air bubbles in them? Mine do, but since I squeezed an even better deal (£2.20 per jar) from another eBay seller who now stopped selling I couldn't complain.

    "The outside measurements are 11 1/2" long and 3 3/4" wide. The inside measurement from heel to toe is 10"

    Measurements are too short to be a US 10. Sounds more like an 8 1/2 or 9.
