HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SHOES
We recommend protecting your new leather shoes with an all weather leather protector before wear.
Should your leather shoes get wet, always ensure to dry them afterwards and re-nourish the leather with a good quality leather cream to prevent the leather from drying out and cracking over time.
Clean any marks with a simple damp cloth. No detergents necessary.
It is recommended to have a Topy sole placed on all leather soles to substantially lengthen the life-span of your shoes.
Investing in a high quality suede protective spray and suede brush is the best way to care for your shoes, prevent permanent stains and encourage longevity.
As soon as you receive your shoes, treat them with a waterproof protective spray before wear, hold the shoe at a distance from the spray to assist with even coverage. This will act as a barrier against the unpredictable weather and reduce the chance of staining.
Should you shoes become stained use your suede brush to gently brush away the dirt and grime in small motions with a light hand. If necessary, brush against the nap of the suede but always finish brushing in the direction the natural grain to maintain its smooth finish.
Simply wipe clean with sponge or use a toothbrush and soapy water to clean the rubber soles and keep them white. Ensure to never use the toothbrush on the upper as it could scratch your leather.
Never put your leather shoes or sneakers in the washing machine. Leather products should never be immersed in water for prolonged periods as the soaking will severely damage the product.
