Step 1 (01:57): Apply Saphir Reptan Conditioner to Shoe
Using a cotton chamois cloth, apply a thick layer of Saphir Reptan onto your shoe. If you have the time, leave the Reptan on your shoe overnight to allow your shoes to absorb the product- if you cannot spare the time, leave it on for at least 2-3 hours before moving to the next step.

Step 2 (03:45): Buff off Reptan Conditioner
Brush off the cream residue using a pig bristle brush or horsehair brush

Step 3 (04:56): Apply Saphir Pommadier Cream Polish
Apply the polish using a cotton chamois cloth to your shoe- use it sparingly. Let it dry for 3-5 minutes before buffing.

Step 4 (04:49): Buff off Cream Polish
Using the same brush that you buffed away the reptan, buff off the cream polish.

Step 5 (06:30): Apply Saphir Mirror Gloss Wax Polish
Use our high-shine cotton chamois to apply the mirror gloss wax polish to build a mirror gloss shine on the toe-box and the hind quarters of the shoes.

Step 6: (08:33) Buff off mirror gloss wax polish
Use chamois and water to buff shoes with polish.
