Shoe Care

General Guidelines

  • Always allow footwear to dry naturally and never put them near direct heat
  • Use scotchguard protector regularly to help protect your shoes from stains such as waterstains, this will help to repel water and prevent stains
  • Never put damp shoes into a cupboard to store as the shoe may disintegrate over time, always dry out fully at room temperature before putting away
  • Use a shoe horn to assist with putting on your shoes, to keep the heel from losing its shape

Cleaning & Maintaining Suede & Nubuck Leather

  • Before you wear your new suede/nubuck shoes we recommend that you treat them with a scotch guard protective spray
  • Use a cleaning block for heavy stains, this product is like a pencil eraser and crumbles as you rub it across the surface of the footwear
  • The nap of your suede can be restored by using a suede brush
  • If your suede shoes get wet, stuff them with newspaper while they dry to keep their shape

Cleaning & Maintaining Faux Leather

  • Faux Suede, velvet, and glitter finish shoes needs to be dusted and wiped with a damp cloth
  • Cleaning your shoes regularly and applying shoe cream will keep your footwear pliable, and help to keep them fresh & new looking
  • Wipe shoes with a soft damp cloth with either a shoe cleaning soap or mild detergent, then dry with a towel and buff

Cleaning & Maintaining Smooth Leather

  • Clean your shoes with a damp cloth before you polish to remove dirt and debris which can become embedded in leather
  • Use a polish or cream, apply evenly to shoe with a brush or soft cloth and allow it to dry in; once the shoe is dry, buff using a natural bristle brush
  • Using a shoe stree to store leather shoes will help retain the shap of the leather
  • Stuffing the toe cap of a shoe with newspaper or tissue will also do this

Outdoor Shoes – Goretex, Gri Tex, Rieker Tex, Jenny Tex

  • First knock off the loose dirt and allow your boots/shoes to dry naturally
  • Let leather boots dry naturally, stuff old news paper inside the boots if they insides are wet
  • Keep them away from direct heat, i.e. beside the fire or radiator, as this will dry and stiffen the leather which then causes cracks in it
  • Do not use greasy products to polish waterproof leather products as it will affect the footwear’s breathability
  • Use a sponge to clean off sponge of material boots/shoes and then allow to dry naturally
