Does everyone order their shoe care supplies (e.g., cream, polish, brushes, waxes etc) online? Or is anyone aware of local stores that I can visit? I am tempted to pick up some creams at Allen Edmonds in Union Square. Any local favorites or is online the way to go?

I have my shined at or by A Shine & Co. Almost always the Galleria output, and on rare occasion Embarcadero Center.

Not aware of any place around here that stocks Saphir products. You'll have to order it online. They work great and I'm happy with them.

Anthony's moved to the BofA building? When?
