why do you want to polish right out the box, just purposely to take out the red?

Yes - to mute the red tone a bit. But also because it's older stock that's been sitting in the depths of their back stock room - dry leather. So I like to condition them before taking them out on the streets and start wearing them in. (? - But, I'm not a shoe care expert - so I may be completely wrong and all of that might be completely unnecessary!)

And I love the smell of Saphir in my office, so I'll find excuses to use it.

Gorgeous. How’s his suede? Only got calf. Q last?
Yes, it is the Q Last which is surprisingly roomy for me at metatarse level compared to the 200 last from C&J or the Inca from Carmina.
From my experience from C&J and Caulaincourt, the suede seems to be of high quality, soft and thick.

How’s your experience with them? Tried to contact them on Ins for a quota but they didn’t seem very responsive.
Overall very good advice and experience, 2-month delivery time respected, but I ordered physically during a Trunk Show in Paris, so hard to tell you how they manage online requests.
