    Try "StyleForum" with a capital F. That should work for you. If it doesn't, contact us at 1.800.495.3201 and we'll get it sorted out.

    Aaaaaaand...we're back!

    Hola, everyone! It's too nice outside to be stuck inside, so Shoe Shine Sunday is going mobile! Today my Saphir polish and Carmina tassel loafers are busy soaking up the sun...join me by posting before and after photos (inside or out) of your own polish job today!

    Each participant this week who cross-posts to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr (using the hashtag #shoeshinesunday and #entry) will receive one entry for a drawing to be held in six weeks for a $500 Hanger Project gift certificate!

    Without further ado, let's get to it...

    My Carmina tassel loafers have been worn a lot, and yesterday I noticed that they needed a refresh. So, I packed up the usual refreshing tools, grabbed the wife, a brat and a brew, and gave all of the tourists a surprise show...

    [​IMG]

    Deluxe Goat Hair Finishing Brush
    Saphir Renovateur
    Saphir Pommadier Cream Shoe Polish in dark green
    Given that this is a usual refresh, but with a beautiful view, let's get straight to the photos...

    I'll be checking back in on this thread throughout the day, so feel free to include any questions you might have along with your posts — who knows, the answer(s) may even be the subject of a future Shoe Shine Sunday!

    Happy Shoe Shine Shunday! [​IMG]


    IT'S SPA DAY!
    Today, I'm treating a pair of Alden x J.Gilbert Natural CXL Wingtip Boots to a beauty and wellness program specifically designed to promote healthier looking skin, while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

    Today's libation … Hendrick's & Tonic with Juniper Berries, Fever Tree Tonic and the most most important … The Tivolo Ice Ball … available at The Hanger Project.


    Leather Polishing Mat (similar item)
    Saphir Renovateur
    Large Horsehair Shoe Polishing Brush
    Chamois Cloth (similar item)
    Tivolo Ice Ball



    BEFORE:
    [​IMG]



    THE CONSULTATION
    To begin, I conduct an analysis to determine the subject's skin type, condition, lifestyle, and any problem areas that would require specialized treatment.


    SKIN TYPE:​
    These boots are composed of Natural Chromexcel. This leather requires little more than maintaining its moisture balance and healthy looking glow. In addition, since these boots have a "natural" skin tone, we don't want to add any coloring agents that would otherwise alter its inherent beauty. To determine your subject's skin type, consult Hanger Project's Leather Care Overview.
    CONDITION:​
    There are some signs of aging … a few wrinkles and fine lines, but overall the condition is very good.
    LIFESTYLE:​
    These boots have an active lifestyle and have been well worn, but also well taken care of :). It's apparent that good beauty habits have become routine.
    RECOMMENDATIONS:​
    A thorough wipe & rub down, followed by a Saphir cleansing and moisturizing mask. Concluding with an invigorating natural brush treatment.​



    WHERE BEAUTY BEGINS
    [​IMG]
    ► First, give the boots a quick brushing to remove any impurities on the surface.

    ► Next, wipe down gently with a damp cloth to prepare the surface.


    [​IMG]
    ► Then, apply a thin layer of Saphir Renovateur; lightly massaging in small circular motions to cleanse and moisturize.

    ► Put on some relaxing music and let the product penetrate for 20 minutes ... Enya - Caribbean Blue might be a good choice here. :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    ► After the Saphir Renovateur has penetrated and the skin is no longer shiny, gently wipe the surface to remove any remaining dirt and distribute any remaining product.

    ► Next, brush vigoriously with a Large Horsehair Shoe Polishing Brush to bring the natural oils to the surface, creating a healthy looking glow.

    ► Lastly, buff with a Chamois to bring out a natural shine.


    THE RESULTS ARE DRAMATIC
    Rehydrated and restored to a vital, youthful state, glowing with radiance…

    So #concept, @macjedi

    Given that they're Chromexcel, Saphir's greasy leather cream is a better bet than Reno — you want to keep the oils impregnated in the leather, rather than pull them out.

    Added a little wax and filled in some uneven coloring on my new EG mto today:

    New out of box:

    [​IMG]

    As it's crust takes color really easily, Saphir green creme is really green so I put a little bit too much on. Saphir green wax is a bit darker than EG olive so counteracts the creme well. Two coats of wax on toe / counters and one on shoe for a little protection

    HA! That was a joke BTW. :)

    Thanks!

    @kirbya … I'm taking a trip in a couple weeks and looking to get a pair of your travel shoe trees. The sizing chart image shows I'm a large, but the info in the description shows I might be a medium. I'm 9D US tts. Do you suggest medium or large? Thanks!

    Good catch. I'll get that edited. Go off of the written sizing guide:

    Small: US 6-7 / EU 39-40
    Medium: US 7.5-9 / EU 41-42
    Large: US 9.5-10.5 / EU 43-44
    Extra-Large: US 11-12 / EU 45-46

    The sizing guide from the manufacturer is based on EU sizing - we then had to translate it to the U.S. equivalents. So, if you know what EU size you are, go with the suggestion there. However, I think our translations should also be accurate.

    The travel trees are nice. My luggage is now several pounds lighter!

    Cheers,

    Kirby

    @kirbya and @RedDevil10

    I'm doing a "presidential" shoe care regimen on these Crockett and Jones in "chestnut" color calf. They are reddish-tan.

    They've been washed with Saphir/Avel saddle soap and conditioned with Saphir dubbin.

    [​IMG]

    Renovateur is the next step, but I'm already thinking ahead to polishing

    What color would you recommend for polishing cream and wax?

    For polishing creams, all I have is a Meltonian in "London Tan" and an Alden neutral. (Pictured) Which of these would you recommend?

    I don't have any suitable polishing waxes. Would you recommend a neutral Saphir wax? (http://www.hangerproject.com/saphir-wax-shoe-polish.html)

    Someone at C&J recommended Saphir polish cream (pommadier) in "Hermes Red." Does this sound right to anyone? I think it'd be too dark and too red.
