Patina

To re-colour or restore the colour on a pair of shoes where the colour has disappeared you need a good leather dye. Pigmented shoe cream can cover marks and areas that have lost colour, but for a permanent and in-depth treatment leather dye is necessary.

We offer Saphir Teinture Francais which by many is seen as the best leather dye in the world. You can easily mix colours to achieve the exact nuance that you are after. Make sure to clean the leather properly so no old colour or shoe cream is left when painting, for example with Saphir Decapant. Under Guides in the menu you find several guides which goes through how to paint shoes.
