    Does anyone know where in Australia I can find Saphir products?

    None of the following are useful options:

    * ebay (poor range)
    * http://www.valmour.fr (No shipping to Australia)
    * http://www.francos.com (Obscure - what colour is what?)

    If Saphir can't be had in Australia, what would the next best option be?

    Did try and locate some stuff in Oz a while back but had no luck either.

    Was speaking with someone at Franco's about shipping some of the stuff to Australia, but they went on leave and I didn't end up chasing it up once they got back.

    I just use kiwi polishes ... they work great (don't use the parade black though) and a shoe conditioner that is made in Germany and is readily available down here. The name escapes me at the moment though.

    You will have to order from Francos. Nothing in Canada.
    Both De Luxe and MÃ[​IMG]daille d'Or are excellent. I use MÃ[​IMG]daille d'Or and I love it. Never tried the De Luxe. It seems that the MÃ[​IMG]daille d'Or is a little bit 'thicker' than the De Luxe. That's all.
