Shoe Care

Looking after your shoes is important. The better you maintain them the longer they will remain looking good and serviceable. It is probably an old wives thing but you will also feel better when wearing something you have taken care of.

  • Don't wear the same shoes day after day
  • Try not to wear new shoes when it's wet or raining.
  • If your shoes become wet or damp - do not force dry them - allow them to dry naturally
  • If you have detachable insocks take them out for airing or spraying
  • Help prevent problems by applying suede or nubuck protector spray
  • Use a shoe horn to help protect the backs of your shoes when putting on or taking off
  • Shoe trees help protect the shape of some of your favourite shoes. 

Cleaning Leather Shoes

  • Use a bristle brush or damp cloth to wipe off dust or dirt from all over the shoe including the heel and sole. You could also remove the laces if required.
  • Make sure you have the correct polish or cream.
  • With a soft cloth apply the polish or cream and gradually work around the shoe.
  • Give the shoes a short drying time
  • Using a bristle brush or clean cloth brush and buff to a clean shine

 Cleaning Suede Shoes

  • Ensure the shoes are dry then gently brush to remove dirt and help restore the nap -very occasionally you may need to use a slightly damp cloth to help.  

Cleaning Nubuck Shoes

  • Again the shoes must be dry gently with a damp cloth clean the shoes do not rub hard as this destroys the nap.
  • If suede or nubuck stains remain then look for the appropriate shampoo or sponge for help. 

Cleaning Patent Shoes

  • Damp cloth to wipe clean and then apply patent spray and buff. 

Cleaning Oiled and Waxed shoes

  • Use the correct oil or wax dressing to feed and redress the leather.
