Saphir Mirror Gloss Wax Polish

Saphir's Medaille d'Or Mirror Gloss wax polish contains a higher concentration of hard waxes in order to more effortlessly produce a high-gloss, mirror finish. The formulation is based on a mixture of montan, carnauba, and beeswax, in addition of other proprietary waxes kept secret by Saphir. Perfectly balanced with natural turpentine solvent, the Mirror Gloss polish produces quick results that are far superior to other, ordinary polishes.

  • Specifically formulated to produce high-gloss, mirror finishes.
  • Proprietary formulation of hard waxes, including montan, carnauba, and beeswax.
  • Available in black and neutral.
  • Should only be used for glazing and not total care.
  • We recommend using with our high-shine chamois.
  • 75 ml. Made in France.

For best results, first prepare the leather using Saphir Pommadier Shoe Cream and/or Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Polish. Can achieve high-gloss polish in as few as four coats. Should only be used on hard shoe surfaces that do not flex in order to prevent cracking.

Polishing notes: the Saphir Mirror Gloss wax has a much dryer consistency than the standard Saphir Pate de Luxe wax polish because of the higher concentration of hard waxes. It applies very dry and requires water to help lubricate this process. Less is more. The best results are achieved through multiple, tiny layers of wax polish that fill up the open pours of smooth leather to create a smooth, glossy surface that reflects light.

More Information:

The Saphir Medaille d'Or Mirror Gloss Wax Polish continue Saphir's tradition of producing the absolute best shoe polish in the world. Formulated at the specific request of Hanger Project founder Kirby Allison, the Mirror Gloss polish allows shoe enthusiasts to more effortlessly product mirror finishes, which is one of the most difficult polishing techniques. This proprietary formulation was reached by carefully choosing the hardest and shiniest natural waxes, which as montan wax, carnauba wax, and bees wax. The formulation was further enhanced by optimizing the proportion of natural turpentine solvents to achieve the best drying, holding, and gloss possible.

The Saphir Medaille d'Or Mirror Gloss wax polish is a specialty product that should only be used on the hard-countered surfaces of a shoe (aka. those that do not bend or flex). It is not a "daily polish" that can or should be used on the entire shoe. If you are looking for a softer, more nourishing wax polish, we recommend the Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Polish. The Saphir Mirror Gloss wax polish does not have any nourishing qualities.

How to Use

The mirror gloss is one of the most difficult and elusive polishing techniques to achieve. The Saphir Mirror Gloss Wax Polish makes this process easier to achieve, but it still requires practice and patience. Below is a simplified explanation. Consult our Shoe Shine Guides for more detailed instructions.

  1. First prepare the leather by cleaning with Saphir Pommadier Cream Polish.
  2. Apply a thin coat of the Mirror Gloss Wax Polish using our Hanger Project High-Shine Chamois.
  3. Allow the wax to drive for several minutes.
  4. Apply one drop (literally) of water to the surface of the shoe, then buff the wax to a shine using small, circular motions. Use the same high-shine chamois used to apply the wax polish.
  5. Apply successive small coats of wax polish (less is more) and buff. As the wax finish builds, so will the brilliance of the mirror shine.

Polishing Notes:

Because of the very high concentration of hard waxes, the polish applies very dry. It is necessary to use slightly more water than one would normally and to apply slightly more pressure in buffing. In contrast, the Mirror Gloss is slightly more fool-proof and certainly more efficiently produces a mirror shine.
