Good habits for the maintenance of your leather shoes
Never wear them for two consecutive days so that the leather can breathe and rest.
Clean them regularly with a suitable cloth or brush. For a nappa leather, consider moisturizing it once a month with a cleansing milk. For a velvet leather, consider waterproofing it before using it for the first time and feeding it at least twice a season.
This protects them from rain and dirt much longer. It is highly recommended.
Regularly remove dust with a brush. There are two types: the soft hair brush and the crepe brush.
Revive the color with a cleansing spray of quality and special for chamois leather. Once applied, let them sit for about an hour.
