At The ShoeCare-Shop we strive to operate our business as sustainable as possible. Our shoe care brushes are made from FSC wood, a sustainable wood source and natural horsehair (tailhair) from a certified supplier. The brands and producers we work with often share a same sense of responsibility for the environment as we do. Luckily, a lot of traditionally crafted products are made using natural materials and ingredients and techniques and have been for years. Products such as the shoe care products by Saphir and the many shaving products by Edwin Jagger, and Tailor of Old Bond Street are made using only the best natural ingredients. Every day our packing team makes sure our products are shipped well protected using as little plastic wrapping as possible. Instead, if possible, we try to use recycled paper as much as possible which has a much lower impact on the environment.
The Shoe Care Shop & sustainability
Innovating shoe care
Saphir Médaille d’Or strives to produce their products as environmentally friendly as possible. They use only natural elements to create their shoe care products and accessories. Products by Saphir Mèdaille d’Or are produced in their factory in southern France and source all necessary ingredients from local or otherwise nearby sources respecting environmental standards and minimizing their carbon footprint. New product lines are created frequently with a green mentality using for example air pressured sprays and solvent free cleaners.
Taking good care of your shoes
We try to motivate our customers to buy quality shoes in a price range that fits their budget. Classic brands such as Crockett & Jones, Sanoni, Alden, Loake and many others are just a few examples of brands that have been making shoes for decades and have always held up their standard of what it means to create a quality pair of shoes. Taking proper care of your shoes using good shoe care such as Saphir’s Médaille d’Or line ensures they will also last you a lifetime. Only needing to be replaced because fashion and style changes throughout the years. Buying timeless models however will even counter that problem. Proper shoe care not only makes your shoes look amazing, it also prevents the leather from drying out and cracking/tearing. Most fashion brands produce shoes of a much lower quality for lower or sometimes same price. Yes, it might look like a great buy for the moment, but be aware that these type shoes will end up in the trash within a year or so. After reading this we hope to have motivated you as well to consider purchasing a pair of quality goodyear welted shoes made with passion.
