Taking care of your shoes for a remarkable life span
Leather absorbs the transpiration of your feet, so it is important to change your socks daily in order for the leather to dry. If your shoes are dampened by the rain, let them dry at room temperature and not next to a heat source (in the sun, near a heater). That way, your shoes won’t shrink, and the leather won’t crack.
To put your shoes on correctly, you should always use a shoehorn so that you don’t damage the heel support. When taking them off, we advise you toput them on shoetrees. The leather will hold its form and not deform.
You should dust your shoes off with a lightly dampened cloth before polishing. Dampening opens the pores in the leather and allows for a better penetration of the wax. Once the shoes have been lightly dampened, wait several minutes before waxing and polishing.
We advise you to use beeswax in order to nourish the leather, to protect it from inclement weather, and to make your shoes shine. Indeed, if you wax your shoes without nourishing them, the leather will be become fragile and might crack.
If your shoes need reassembling or repairing, always have the work done by a professional cobbler.

Shockproof, thanks to the lateral Blake welting.
The suede leather absorbs transpiration, making your shoes breathable.
The rubber sole from Lactea Hevea softens the shock of every step you take.
The microscopic air bubbles which make up the sole provide unequalled comfort.
The rubber soles are from Lactea Hevea, sourced in tropical forests.
The suede is biodegradable, and due to its natural vegetable tanning process, it is favourable to the environment and health. The suede is biodegradable, and due to its natural vegetable tanning process, it is favourable to the environment and health.
