1. Clean and condition
Take the time each week to wipe away dust with a soft cloth or brush. Never use alcohol wipes to clean your leather shoes (or bags).
After cleaning it, apply a shoe conditioner. This help to moisturize and soften the leather, preventing them from drying or cracking later on.
2. Rotate your shoes
Leather needs to breathe, just like your skin. You should rotate your shoes and avoid wearing the same pair every day. Your feet sweat throughout the day, and the leather absorbs the moisture.
Damp leather is more susceptible to stretching, creasing, scuffing and staining.
The way you store your shoes is important. Keep them in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated space, away from direct sunlight.
Humidity ruins the structure of the leather and causes the glue to loosen. If you are not wearing them often, keep them in a dust bag to protect them from dust particles.
Can the shoes get wet?
As with all leather, it's never a great idea to get it wet. When leather dries, it removes the oil along with it. The loss of natural oil for the leather will causes it to lose it's quality and turn brittle.
If you do get caught by surprise in the rain, fret not! Stuff your leather shoes with newspaper and allow them to air dry naturally.
Keep them away from heat sources, direct sun or hairdryer, as it may warp the leather.
When the leather is still damp, apply a coat of leather conditioner. Using a soft and clean cloth to massage the conditioner in small circular motions.
How do I take care of the leather when it's wet?
1. Gently wipe off any water & allow it to dry naturally! It's important not to apply any strong heat, eg. hairdryer / under direct sun.
2. While the leather is damp, apply a thin coat of leather conditioner, in a small circular rotation with a soft and clean cloth. We're currently using leather conditioner from Howard.
*spot test the conditioner on the leather, also note that too much conditioner is not good for the leather.
Will the leather stretch over time?
Yes. Leather have a natural stretching ability. It stretches and moulds to your feet over time. Do make sure that the shoes are a "comfortable snug" when you purchase them.
