How to care

Our shoes have been created to be your very own travel journal. They will continue to antique and develop character to tell the stories of your travels as you run, hop, jump and skip while exploring life's wonder. We're so proud to be using natural materials where colour variations are normal and contribute to the authentic and exclusive look of each style. Here’s a handy guide on how to keep your kicks looking fresh:

 


  • Leather
  • Suede & Nubuck
  • Calf Hair
  • Metallic Leathers
  • Patent Leathers

 

  • Spray with a suited leather protector (we recommend Collonil).
  • Use a leather cleaner and a damp cloth to lift any dirt or water stain.
  • For tough stains, use a soft bristle brush like an old tooth brush.
  • After cleaning don’t forget to protect again with leather spray.

 

 

  • Before stepping out, protect from water absorption and marks by applying a quality waterproofing spray.
  • To remove dry dirt marks, use a suede/nubuck brush and brush in the same direction. You can also use a leather cleaner such as Jason Markk with a soft bristle brush to remove any dirt.
  • After cleaning, waterproof again as cleaning will strip any protective layers.

 

 

  • Calf hair is quite delicate and may eventually bald slightly from abrasion. The most effective maintenance is to take care when wearing! Make sure you take extra care as if balding occurs there is no way to reverse it.
  • You can’t use any cleaners or leather protectors on calf hair, but if there is a little dirt on them, just brush it out in the same direction of the hair.

 

 

  • Metallic leathers are somewhat delicate as they are created using a hot press technique where the metal foil is attached to the leather. If the material is scratched, it will expose the leather underneath.
  • Make sure you tread with care as the foil cannot be re-attached if scratched.

 

 

  • To remove haze from your patent shoes, use a soft damp cloth and a drop of mild soap and clean gently.
  • A Lack Polish Spray (we recommend Collonil) is a good way to prevent your patent leather from cracking. Castor oil can be used to reduce creases caused during walking.
