Leather

Nothing could be simpler when it comes to keeping your regular leather shoes looking good. Just follow our advice below :

Waterproof your leather shoes with shoe polish before you wear them first to protect them from any potential stains and rain. After you’ve worn them several times, dust them off then apply a moisturising cream with a chamois cloth. If you want to restore the leather’s colour, you can apply a shoe polish of the same colour.

Patent leather does not require special care before you wear it. The leather already has a lacquer coat so it is very easy to look after :

Use a damp or dry cloth to dust your shoes. You can then apply a special patent leather spray to restore all the shine and prevent the lacquer from cracking.

Suede is a fragile leather that requires special maintenance :

Waterproof your leather shoes with a spray before you wear them first to protect them from any potential stains and rain. After you’ve worn them several times, you can use a special brush or an old toothbrush for dusting and/or removing stains. Remember to re-waterproof your shoes regularly !

Cracked or iridescent leather is more fragile than other kinds of leather and requires special maintenance :

Waterproof your leather shoes with shoe polish before you wear them first to protect them from any potential stains and rain. Do not brush your shoes under any circumstances! This could irrevocably damage the leather. You can use a damp chamois cloth to clean your leather.

Printed leather is a more fragile leather than other leathers and requires particular care:

Waterproof your leather shoes with shoe polish before your first use to protect them from stains and rain. Do not brush your pair! This could cause irreversible damage to the leather. You can use a moistened chamois to clean your leather. Using a clean sponge soaked in clear water, wash the stained areas.

Other material

Nothing could be simpler when it comes to keeping your textile or canvas shoes in good condition. Just follow our advice :

Do not put your shoes in the washing machine as this could damage the sole. Clean any stains with a damp cloth and a little Marseilles soap or natural stain remover. To clean the soles of your trainers, get an old toothbrush and apply a little white toothpaste. Gently rub the rubber without touching the canvas or leather. Then gently rinse the toothpaste off using a damp cloth.

The PVC material does not require any maintenance before being worn. To keep your PVC (or rubber) boots, follow our advice below:

If the boots are very dirty, clean them with a cloth soaked in spirit. The boots are cleaned with a sponge soaked in water and a few drops of washing-up liquid, wrung out well. Speed up the drying of rubber boots by blowing warm air into them with a hair dryer. To restore the shine to the boots, use a cloth coated with beeswax and polish them.

Synthetic fur is very fragile and requires particular care:

In cold (or barely warm) water mixed with Marseille soap. Knead and rub your synthetic fur very lightly, then rinse with clear (and always cold) water. Do not wring it out. Dry it between two towels and then lay it flat in the open air. At the end of the operation, brush the hairs to loosen them and restore volume and softness to your shoe.
