OUR SHOE 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 come, use our 4-Step Shoe Care Process and these essential products.


HOW TO CARE FOR LEATHER FOOTWEAR

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.


HOW TO CARE FOR SUEDE FOOTWEAR

1. CLEAN

 

First, remove dirt and buff out stains from your footwear’s uppers using the brush and eraser bar included in our Suede and Nubuck Cleaning System. For suede styles, the stiff wire bristles on our Suede Long Handle Brush are essential for combing out the nap and creating a smooth, even surface grain.

3. DRESS

 

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

3. PROTECT

 

As a last step, spray on Suede Protector to guard against harmful moisture and spills.


DID YOU KNOW?


Getting into an easy, five-minute care ritual at the end of your day is the best way to keep your footwear looking new. Apply our Speed Polish and then go over the shoes with a few passes of the Horsehair Dauber and Polishing Cloth. Think of it as a quick wax for your car that ensures you’ll need deep polishes less often.


OUR SHOE TREES

 

Just like the signature lasts that give our footwear its form during the construction process, our shoe trees are essential to maintaining a shoe, boot or sneaker’s shape over time and preventing bending and cracking in the uppers. Our styles are made with sustainably harvested, American hardwood cedar, a material that helps to absorb odors and moisture that can damage your footwear.
