- The brand
This paste has been specially elaborated to answer professional bootmakers and shoe shiners needs, to obtain an irreproachable gloss in a faster & easier way, to be more productive. Gloss is reached faster than with PÂTE DE LUXE MEDAILLE D’OR which is naturally softer as its purpose is also to clean, nourish & hydrate leather. This unique formula has been reached by carefully choosing the hardest and shinier natural waxes, concentrating them into a formula where naturally greasy solvents such as turpentine have been introduced in the best proportion to allow an optimal grip & drying process between successive thin coats of MIRROR GLOSS applications. Perfect mixing with water.
Product texture seems dry but it’s just hard : finger can’t be pushed into the product & allows to perfectly dose right amount onto the glazing cloth. The cloth grips without slipping on the product, which is perfect for dosing, even more for gloss finishes.
The best waxes are naturally found in this formulation such as the most known ones: Montan wax, Carnauba wax, Bees wax. Others are kept secret in order to protect our laboratory’s work who elaborated this formula in collaboration with the best shoemakers.
CONDITIONS OF USE: This product is exclusively meant to obtain gloss on shoe ends only as gloss doesn’t hold on inverted pleats.
