Frequency: Occasional use, when the shoes require deep cleaning. Remove the shoe laces whether they are made of cotton or of leather.
STEP 2: STRETCHING THE LEATHER
The shoes displayed here are a pair of Bordeaux-coloured heels. We will therefore begin by using high heel shoe trees. These sponge shoe trees help maintain the shape of the shoes when they are not being worn, and smoothens out their leather during a shoe care treatment.
Over time, shoes lose their colour and dark spots begin to appear on the leather. At this point, the leather requires a potent cleaner such as the Saphir Renomat Stain Remover.
Clean the shoes using a polishing cloth and small circular strokes. This will lift deep-rooted stains and dirt from the pores of the leather, as well as any deposits left by resin and silicone-based products.
After leaving the leather to dry for 15 minutes, you can proceed with the leather shoe polishing lesson available at MonsieurChaussure.com. For the heels displayed here, we will apply the cherry red Saphir superfine shoe cream followed by the Bordeaux Saphir shoe polish.
