    Leather Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    Suede/Nubuck Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Thoroughly remove stains using our Suede and Nubuck Cleaning System, following the instructions on the box.

    STEP 2: Take our Heel Dressing applicator and press against the edge of the heels and soles.

    STEP 3: Once the material has dried, spray our Water Protector over the surface of the shoes and let dry.


    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discovery boot Very comfortable straightaway, good quality leather. The only downside is that I ordered the same size as my other AE dress shoes/boots and they seem a little big, I suppose no laces creates that feeling and with thicker socks might be fine
