Shoe Shines Now Available

Starting today, we are offering shoe shines in the lobby area of Wingtip. Shoe-shiner Kea Lani has been holding down A Shine & Co.’s operation at JFK airport in New York, and now she has returned to SF and taken up residency at our vintage shoe shine stand.

Our CEO Ami Arad just snagged the first polish, now it’s your turn.

(By the way, we will offer complimentary shoe shines during the Wolverine 744 Shell Cordovan Boot launch party on Thursday from 4–8pm.)


$15 — Beauté de Cuir
Everything your shoe needs, polished with beaute de cuir

$25 — Médaille d’Or
The same thorough service perfected with Saphir’s top-of-the-line, gold medal-winning polish.

$45 — Glaçage
An extremely high-gloss polish that will pass muster with even the toughest drill sargent. (Requires min. 24-hr turnaround time.)
