Leather Care Polish

Step One

Remove dust from your shoes with a soft cotton cloth or Tapir´s Polishing Cloth. Brush off tough dirt with Tapir´s Cleaning Brush. For really hardened dirt use Tapir´s Leather and Saddle Soap to wash over the leather first.

Extra tip!
Remove shoe laces before cleaning and applying care products, this will help to reach all areas of the leather easier and make the job more effective. Shoe laces will stay clean and you´ll keep them longer.

Step Two

Apply a small amount of Tapir´s Leather Care Polish with a Tapir´s Application Brush on your shoes and massage it intensively into the leather. Normally colourless Tapir´s Leather Care Polish on your coloured shoes is enough. However, natural colour pigments would additionally restore the colour and cover up cracks and scuffs on your shoes making them look new again.

We offer Tapir´s Leather Care Polish in following varieties: colourless, black, brown, auburn and blue.


Step Three

Allow your shoes to dry for a few minutes and then polish them with our special polishing brush. Polishing rubs the leather care polish evenly into leather pores and at the same time absorbs any excess of wax. Please polish gently and don´t apply too much pressure.

We recommend our Tapir´s Polishing Brush made with the finest horse hair.

Step Four

After polishing put your shoes on a shoetree. We recommend shoetrees from cedar wood. Coming soon: shoetrees made of untreated cedar wood manufactured using traditional German craftsmanship.

You´ll appreciate the natural scent of cedar wood your shoes will benefit from the dehumidifying effect of cedar wood while keeping your leather in good shape.
