The Sapphire products follow the same routine as the Monsieur Chaussure products. Always start by dusting and then cleaning with a shoe cleaner. Once the leather is bare or the nubuck is free of dust, you need to nourish the leather. Choose the right products for your shoes.

Apply the products according to the routines established by Monsieur Chaussure and its partner shoemakers.
