Saphir Médaille d'Or Pate de Luxe Wax, 100ml.

Does best: Creating shine
Also great at: Protecting and nourishing
Most used for: Most smooth leather types, shoes
Combine with: Lotion or Renovateur; and Pommadier

This luxurious shoe wax is 100% natural and contains several different types of wax, such as from animals, plants and minerals. Every type of wax has it's own characteristics, among others: Gloss, nourishing, softening, protection and scent. The wax is specially developed to give a top-notch polish to your leather shoes. Pate de Luxe is based on Pinetree turpentine and carnauba wax (which comes from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree). Because of its 100% natural formula, the difference with other shoe waxes is almost directly visible.

Apply a little wax to a cotton cloth and gently massage it into the leather, for example, the nose of your shoes. Brush out gently or shine with a soft cotton cloth to create a beautiful shine. To get the perfect mirror shine, combine Saphir Pate de Luxe with Saphir Mirror Gloss. After multiple layers, a bright shine will arise and the leather will look mirror-like! Before applying these products we advise you to treat your shoes with Lotion or Renovateur and Pommadier.

The wax is available in multiple colours, so you can keep every pair up to date!

Pate de Luxe or Mirror Gloss?

Don't know which to pick? Choose Pate de Luxe if you are looking for a nice high gloss wax combined with nourishing oils to maintain the leather. Saphir Pate de Luxe is available in multiple colours. Are you looking to build up a mirror gloss finish on your shoes? Then go for Saphir Mirror Gloss. Please note that Mirror Gloss is really only a finishing wax without any nourishing qualities, but gosh does it shine! You can use Mirror gloss on top of Pate de Luxe or Pommadier cream.

How to use

Saphir Médaille d'Or Pate de Luxe shoe wax is best applied with a cotton rubbing cloth. Tip: Do not use too much shoe wax per application, in the case of shoe polishing: Less is more.

To treat your shoes optimally with Saphir Médaille d'Or Pate de Luxe you need:
• Saphir Médaille d'Or Pate de Luxe
• Applicator cloth
• Saphir Polishing Cloth
• Polishing brush

1. Briefly rub the cloth over the wax until it adheres to the cotton

2. Apply the wax to the shoe by massaging it into the leather of the shoe with small circular movements

3. To really make the shoe wax shine, you need to polish the shoes with a polishing brush. For a high-gloss effect, you can choose to polish it again with a polishing cloth. The best way to polish with a cloth is to hold the cloth tightly between two hands and then quickly move it back and forth over the nose of the shoe, for example. When you use a brush, you brush it along the shoe with quick short movements.

Tip: We prefer a combination of a brush and a cloth when polishing wax.
