    +1, it's a great product. I highly recommend it for the cost/benefit ratio it provides.

    Renomatted and Reno'd my Strands. Renomat is literally magic. Took the old wax off my shoes in seconds.

    Couldn't have done it without everybody's advice.

    Where I live people get beat up for wearing shoes with laces like that! I tease, of course.

    Wow, these look incredible compared to what they looked like before.

    How long did you let the Renomat sit before brushing it off?

    Not the OP but Renomat is a thin liquid which doesn't really get buffed off. It's more used with a cotton pad or cloth, at least this is how I use it.

    Amazing shine! However, that can hardly be practical regarding creasing and cracking of the wax? Unless you plan on going around like this:

    Does anyone know where I can get any Saphir products in the montreal area. I can't find them anywhere. Most places online don't ship to Canada for a reasonable fee! Thanks in advance.

    With this polish, wax simply breaks away as shoes flex. It has high concentration of Beeswax for fantastic shine, and selected colour stain for clear reflection.

    Fantastic shine! Once you've worn the shoes a little, could you please post another pic? I'm not sure I understand what you mean about the wax breaking away.

    So you wipe it off?

    Still curios to find out how long he let it set before wiping it off.
