I've had excellent results with Woly's shoe cream. It's made in Germany and seems to be reasonaly high quality. It also has the huge advantage of being locally available. I've read quite a bit on Saphir, and a little on Burgol, both of which seem to get rave reviews. Is anybody else out there using Woly? Anybody who can compare it with other harder to find (read more expensive to ship) products?

I cannot really speak from own experience with Saphire or Woly but I do personally use (and sell in Korea) Burgol. In my experience it easily beats both Kiwi and the Crockett and Jones polish.

Burgol is handmade in Switzerland. We've recently visited the manufacture and met with the owner and maker of Burgol polish. There is currently a distributor in Germany who delivers to quite a number of retailers and also sells online. If you search for Burgol online you should find his site quite easily.

If you've ever got the chance to compare the products yourself, it'd be interesting to get your assessment of them.

Cheers
