Justin FitzPatrick, a self-described ‘artisinal shoe polisher’ with a shine stand at Gieves & Hawkes on Savile Row, is a master at breathing new life into old shoes. Here, via Mr Porter, he takes us through the slow and steady stages of cleaning, feeding, colour rejuvenation and final polish, the results impressive indeed.
Erik Adler is the Editorial Director for Alpha Brand Media. An avid cyclist, when he's not working he can be found restoring vintage bikes for his collection. Proud Estonian. Not so proud Ticats fan.
