A vital aspect of the Fortis Green shoeshine service is our choice to always use Saphir brand polishes. With a reputation as one of the finest shoe care brands on the international market, these all-natural wax polishes have been manufactured in the South of France since 1920.
Created in collaboration with the best leather-craft makers in Europe, the original laboratory formula of beeswax, mineral spirits and pigments was vastly ahead of its time. To this day, Saphir wax polishes don’t rely on the harmful silicone or petrol products commonly found in ordinary shoe polishes.
We pride ourselves on achieving exceptional results when servicing the footwear of our patrons by utilising Saphir’s Crème Surfine range of polishes. Renowned for their high concentration of beeswax and wide range of available colours, this formula allows us to nourish, revive colour and add weatherproofing to bring even the most tired leather footwear back from the brink.
