Our shoe care tips for your leather shoes
Care instructions for smooth leather shoes
Step 1: Put the cedar wood shoe trees in your shoes, this will help to maintain their shape and reduce wrinkles. Remove the laces to clean them better in every corner.
Step 2: Brush off your shoes with the shining brush: This removes dust and dirt.
Step 3: Clean the shoes with a cotton cloth (or a soft cloth) and a little bit of soft cream. This step removes traces of the old wax layer, like a make-up remover.
Then use the cotton cloth or the round cream brush to apply a layer of wax to the rest of the shoe that is thin enough to let the leather breathe.
Step 5: Remove the excess wax with the cream brush. During this process, the wax in all the details of the shoe, such as perforations or flower tips, is removed. To make your shoes shine, rub the entire surface with the polishing glove.
Care of suede or nubuck shoes
Use the suede brush for suede leather. The rubber part will be useful for more delicate leather. Rub in all directions to remove the dirt between the hairs. Carefully insist on the folds and edges of the shoe.
