The qualification process and also how the finals will unfold is thoroughly explained in this article, so here we focus on showcasing the finalists’ submissions and briefly let you know who they are. Both the World Championships in Shoe Shining and Shoe Patina are organised in collaboration with Saphir, shining contestants shine and can win a Loake shoe, patina contestants paint and can win a TLB Mallorca shoe. We had almost 40 submissions to the two contests (thanks to all who sent in submissions!), literally from all over the world, both amateurs and many professionals. It was a challenging job for the jurys to select the finalists, in the end these received most jury points and made it to London:
