Shiny, Smooth, Saphir

Our shoes are a long-term investment. They are durable and impeccably made by hand with the best quality materials. And we would like to ensure that in order to take proper care of your newly purchased, glorious footwear, YOU (yes, you), have the perfect polish.

….So we sell Saphir. It’s incredible. Let us fill you in: Saphir is a French polish that is made using a turpentine made of pine, which places it in a league of its own. Not only does the pine give leather an extra silky shine, it also emits a rustic but subtle aroma that will leave them smelling fresh- and who doesn’t want that?!

Here at the store, we have this remarkable product available in different shades of brown, black, burgundy, blue, and green that correspond with our leathers. In addition, and perhaps the best part, is that we also sell the clear polish that works on virtually anything you could think of.

If you own a pair of our shoes, or are considering getting some soon, be sure to check out Saphir, and the wonders it can do for your shoe care!

    1. Hi Maurice. Thanks for your note. The Beacon has Goodyear-welted sole that can be easily replaced. We build it with a full leather sole and a Vibram rubber half sole on top of that. So that double sole should last you years and years, of course thats depends also on how much wear you put on them…. We’d be happy to resole the Beacon for you when the time comes. We re-sole and polish and replace the laces. Just email us at when necessary. Right now, that service runs $100.
