How to use

  1. Clean any dirt or dust off your shoes
  2. Apply a small amount of Pâte De Luxe with a cotton chamois cloth or polishing brush to reach the welt seams area
  3. Nourish and protect the leather by massaging gently to allow Pâte De Luxe to absorb
  4. Apply one or two coats to the entire shoe
  5. Dry for five minutes between coats
  6. Gently polish the leather with a wool glove or bristle brush
  7. For a high-gloss finish, apply additional coats to the toe and heel. Avoid applying too heavily to the top of the shoe as it may cause cracking.
