Article no. 14659 - Austerity Oxford in Medium Brown Calf Leather

Austerity brogues are a classic style of men's dress shoes that feature intricate perforations, also known as broguing, on the toe cap and along the edges of the shoe. What sets austerity brogues apart from other brogue styles is the absence of the traditional wingtip design and any decorative perforations on the main body of the shoe.

Austerity brogues have a clean, streamlined appearance, with a simple, elegant design that emphasizes the quality of the leather and the craftsmanship of the shoe. The lack of extraneous detail gives austerity brogues a sophisticated, understated look that is versatile enough to be worn with both formal and smart-casual outfits.

Step 1: Using a soft cloth, apply a base coat of Saphir Médaille d'Or Lotion leather conditioner. The beeswax and mink oil will condition the leather fibres and seal in moisture, preventing the leather from drying out. Alternatively, you could also use Saphir Médaille d'Or Renovateur.

Step 2: Using your fingers or a soft cloth, apply a few thin layers of Saphir Médaille d'Or Pommadier shoe cream to your shoes, and allow the cream to dry for a few minutes and be fully absorbed into the leather. After the cream has dried, brush the surface vigorously using a horsehair brush until a soft shine appears on your shoes.

Step 3: Using a soft cloth, apply a few thin layers of Saphir Médaille d'Or Pate de Luxe shoe wax and gently massage it into the surface of the leather, using small circular motions. Alternatively, some professional shoeshiners even recommend applying the first few leathers of this wax onto your shoes using your bare fingers. To achieve a high shine, gradually build up thin layers of wax using small amounts of wax interspersed with a few drops of water. As a finishing touch and to achieve that coveted mirror shine on the toe caps of your shoes, use a soft cloth to apply a few thin layers of Saphir Médaille d'Or Mirror Gloss shoe wax onto the surface of the leather, using small circular motions. Whenever the surface of the leather starts to feel 'sticky' and the cloth doesn't move around as smoothly, add a few drops of water onto the layer of wax you are building up to keep the surface as smooth and even as possible.
