Leather is a noble, living material that needs to be cared for to maintain its flexibility and gain a beautiful patina over time. Here are a few tips for taking care of your child's shoes.
A moment of rest
Ideally, we recommend not wearing the same pair of shoes several days in a row. Alternating shoes allows the leather to breathe, prolonging its longevity.
Similarly, when the insoles are removable, we recommend taking them out of the shoe every night to ventilate and sanitize the shoe. This will help prevent possible discomfort due to perspiration.
We recommended dusting the shoe with a cloth or a soft brush first. Next, apply shoe wax with a soft cotton cloth in a circular motion. The wax will nourish and soften the leather. Let it rest for a while and then buff.
Caring for suede and nubuck
As with smooth leather, it is advisable to dust the shoe beforehand, this time using a natural crepe brush or a gum suede eraser. This will also remove surface stains. You can then clean the shoe with a little soapy water or foam cleanser. Leave to dry in the open air. As suede is sensitive to water and moisture, it requires use of a waterproofing spray after cleaning.
