Missione Skoaktiebolaget-Part 2
Many of you already know that at the Skoaktiebolaget Store you can find Carmina Shoes, Edward Green, Gaziano & Girling, Enzo Bonafé, and Sozzi accessories, as well as Liverano & Liverano, Grange Craft, Skoaktiebolaget and Abbey Horn. The thing I really liked is that there is also the possibility of buying all these wonders from your home, while sitting on your couch. The Skoaktiebolaget online shop is as reliable and precise as a Swiss watch.
Usually many people ask me, which products Dandy Shoe Care uses to obtain such spectacular results. Of course I cannot reveal all my secret formulas … But I always try to explain that my real secret is not the product I use, but the skills of my hands and my ability to understand what shoes need. In any case, choosing products for the shoe care is a difficult and interesting question.
I was curious about the fact that Skoaktiebolaget relies on Burgol shoe care products, so I decided to test them. To be honest, the first time I opened a box of Burgol shoe polish I was quite disappointed. I found the cream having a texture that was too soft, maybe because summer in Italy can be very hot… But actually, after a little ‘practice, I fell in love with Burgol products. Their nourishing factors help leather to become beautiful and shiny, and shoes look really healthy. The cream penetrates deeply into the leather, and unlike the other products with high content of bees wax, it does not create a crust: this helps to maintain leather very elastic. Among an large amount of different colors of Burgol creams, you will surely find the one that perfectly suits the color of your shoes. In a nutshell, Burgol is a must-have brand in your kit for shoe care.
The choice of Skoaktiebolaget to use the Burgol products, once again confirms a great attention to every little detail that distinguishes this company from many others. Devil is in details, you know…
Above a wing tipped whole cut Adelaide laced Oxford in dark antiqued oak on the TG73 chisel last. Simple, elegant, classic and timeless shoe with a modern twist.
A three tier Derby in calf and lizard hides with a medallion on the cap toe, round last DG70. Very cool Derby shoe and very sober medallion. Ouch….wish my treasurer box was unlimited.

From the creator of this patina, Alexander Nurulaeff of Dandy Shoe Care:
"Skoaktiebolaget Deep Red - the color of uncontrollable passion. The desire to live fully. Here the shades of the setting sun are combined with burning fire, red wine, blood and flaming ruby, all covered by the black mystery of the night."

Missione Skoaktiebolaget-Part 1
The Skoaktiebokaget shop is located in the most elegant and prestigious area of Stockholm. From the first second I walked into this temple of quality shoe I immediately felt at home. The welcoming kindness of Mr Gabriel Öberg Bustard (the charming Store Manager) and of Mr Alexander Glansholm (the Shop Assistant and keen shoe polish Specialist) drove me back to an era of true gentlemen…
I really admire people doing their job with passion and earnestness. But the thing that struck me the most was the fact that the whole team of Skoaktiebolaget is made of very special people. You immediately feel the great passion and love that they have for what they do.
The founders of Skoaktiebolaget, Mr. Patrik Löf and Mr. Daniel Tung, are two gentlemen of great culture, distinguished and elegant in everything they do. I think this is one of the reasons why they attract so many customers not only from Sweden but also from around the world. You can find many stores that sell men’s shoes, but places like this, where a gentleman can find excellent service and a large choice of quality shoes, are actually very few.
I was really impressed to see not only how many people dropped in the store during the two days of my show, but also how many pairs of shoes have been sold. In Italy I have never seen so many people going in a shoe store and walking out with purchases in one day. Business of Skoaktiebolaget is booming, and I’m very glad for that. It’s also a great joy to know that the art of Patina that I’m trying to bring throughout the world is so appreciated in Sweden.
Nowadays, gentlemen from all over the world wish to get shoes which are truly unique and customized. Dandy Shoe Care makes dreams come true. Such realities as Skoaktiebolaget, who understand the importance of offering their customers only the most exclusive and most beautiful things in the world of footwear, surely have a great future. I’m sure there will be some more amazing collaboration between Dandy Shoe Care and Skoaktiebolaget in the future. But for now, I recommend you to visit that outstanding shop.
