  • Care

    We believe a great pair of shoes or boots is always a solid long-term investment. To keep your favorite footwear in top form for years or even decades to comes, use our 4 Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.

    1. Clean

    Start by applying Saddle Soap with a Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth to remove stains and dirt from the uppers and bring up the leather's natural oils.

    2. Polish

    Next, use a Horsehair Dauber to treat your footwear with Cream Polish which renews the color and luster of leather. Any time you want to achieve a truly glossy, high shine, you should instead apply Carnauba Wax Polish.

    3. Dress

    Restore the color and surface of the leather on the heels and soles using Heel Dressing.

    4. Protect

    Leather Lotion keeps uppers soft, supple and hydrated while a Horsehair Shine Brush is perfect for buffing your shoes to the desired shine. As a last step, spray on Water Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills and use a Leather Dopp Kit to keep all your care products organized.

    Bernini Split-Toe Dress Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes Perfect fit and high quality. I would purchase another pair

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Shoe I bought these in black because I have a brown Park Avenue pair that are my other go-to's. These shoes have been a dream of mine for many years, and I finally took the plunge. Very happy. I love how three-dimensional they look vs. less expensive shoes. Very high quality leather. Stiff at first, I'm finding they take a little bit to break in... more so than my Park Avenues if I remember correctly. Also, they feel long in the toe box at first but are fitting correctly. I consider both of these normal. The style of the Bernini is unmatched.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shoe Beautiful shoe, without a doubt. My wife complimented them without me telling her they were new. Looks a bit long in the beginning, but you get used to it and then you kinda like it.. Fit is perfect, same with the comfort level. Could be a bit lighter in tone. In a dim office they might be confused as black rather than brown.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully Crafted Shoe I wear a US13 Nike Airforce One and a US12 Adidas NMD. I am flatfooted and have wide feet. I bought these at size US13 EEE. Fits me snugly but needs to work into it abit. Beautiful pair of shoes in cigar brown.. will cherish these for a while!
