With Monsieur Chaussure’s exclusive range of customised services, your shoes will benefit from the expert care of our professional shoemakers. Our special shoe restoration service gives you the option to change your shoe colour to the shade of your choice. Talk to our shoe care team about your colour preferences. They will be happy to advise you on whether the colour change is feasible or not. Keep in mind however that it is almost impossible to change black or very dark leather to another colour as the colour removal process on these shades is extremely difficult. We always complete the shoe restoration service with a full leather care treatment to ensure that your shoes stay beautiful for longer.
Your shoes will first be dusted with a shoe cleaning brush. Then, a colour remover will be rubbed into the leather with a cloth to get rid of any remaining traces of shoes polish and dye. A natural leather colour dye will then be applied to the shoes, followed by a colour-matched Saphir superfine cream to nourish the leather. The shoe cream softens the leather, deeply recolours it and prevents it from aging prematurely.
Our shoemakers will then complete the leather care process with a luxury shoe polish in the same colour as your shoes. This stage is very important since the shoe polish creates a high-gloss protective layer over your shoes that waterproofs them and further intensifies their colour.
The next stage, known as the “glacage”, adds a mirror shine to the tips and heels where the leather is stiffer. This consists of adding a mixture of polish and a bit of water to the extremities of the shoes in order to create a high gloss shine. The shoe polish used can be neutral, tinted in the same colour as the shoe, or tinted in a totally different shade to play on the leather’s undertones.
Your shoes will be returned to you in a pure cotton shoe bag and with a new pair of shoelaces.
