Shoe Care


  • Leather shoes are not waterproof except when specially treated.
  • Unlined nubuck and leather shoes cannot be made colourfast and some colour loss will be experienced during wear.
  • Brand new leather soled shoes should never be worn in wet conditions. It is important to wear them on a dry day to build up a layer of grit on the soles. This protects the leather and extends its life.
  • Damp shoes should be allowed to dry in a well ventilated place. Drying in front of a heat source such as a radiator will cause evaporation of oil in the leather resulting in cracking of leather.
  • Examine shoes frequently and make any necessary repairs to the heels and soles. This maintains the balance of the shoes and helps prevent seams splitting.
  • Heal and toe tips are not guaranteed.
  • Rotate your shoes as much as possible to allow them a chance to expel any moisture build up from perspiration thus extending the life of both the leather and the stitching.

    Cleaning your Shoes

    • Regular cleaning and polishing helps to preserve your shoes and protect against water damage.
    • Remove dust and dirt with a clean cloth or by light brushing.
    • Standard leather shoes: Apply a coat of wax polish or a shoe cream and buff with a soft brush or cloth to shine.
    • Suede and nubuck: Apply a nubuck leather spray or suede renovator to freshen up leather.
