SHOE CARE: LEATHER/SUEDE
All of our leathers are carefully selected for their lasting durability and longevity.
Taking good care of your shoes, increases their life. Leather is a natural material and therfore and a long term investment.
You can protect both leather or suede shoes against water or dirt by spraying them with our shoe protector spray. Make sure that the shoes are free from any dirt before you spray them.
When the shoes need a clean, you can remove any type of dirt from the shoes using a neutral coloured damp cloth. When you are finished, it’s very important to give them enough time to dry completely. Don’t place them on the heating or in the sun because this will dry out the leather. Afterwards you can treat the leather with a shoe polish if needed.
For suede we recommend our shoe brush. Brushing delicately and regularly, to remove dirt and stains. A must have item for your suede shoes.
SHOE CARE: CREPE SOLES
Crepe rubber is a completely natural material that can respond to both heat and cold.
Therefore, you should not leave shoes with crepe rubber soles directly in the sun on a summer day - as the sole can melt in extreme heat and become deformed.
A crepe rubber sole can become hard and crystallize over time or if left in extreme cold. This can be solved by placing the shoe on a medium heat radiator under supervision for approx. 30-60 minutes, or until they are soft and flexible again.
If the crepe rubber sole gets sticky in hot weather, it can be repaired by a shoemaker. The shoemaker can remove a thin layer of the crepe rubber sole and then apply talc.
