Leather & Care

Leather is a living and natural material. Well-treated leather can become even more beautiful and unique over time. To extend the life of your product, we recommend that you impregnate it with a product that is adapted to the leather of your shoe (see below). Prolonged exposure to a strong light source (sun or artificial light) can change the color of the leather over time. We therefore recommend that you keep your product in the shoe bag that came with it when you are not using it.

For better results, we also recommend that you put your shoes on with a shoe tree so that they keep their original shape.

SUEDE
Product example: Pablo's Grey

Suede is a delicate leather because its surface has been sanded to give it a velvety feel.

So we recommend waterproofing your shoes to protect them. Avoid contact with water and liquids. If it rains, let it dry outdoors - without artificial heat sources such as radiators or hairdryers - use a shoe tree to keep the product in its original shape. Dark or bright suede colors can discolor see-through clothing if brought in close contact. On the other hand, dark clothing (e.g. raw jeans) can rub off on suede. Moisture increases color migration.

SMOOTH LEATHER
Product example: Adorable Black

This is a full-grain leather whose original surface has been preserved and refined.

It is therefore possible that your product shows slight signs of use, which should be regarded as a guarantee of authenticity. While smooth leather is best known for its resilience and durability, it is still a living matter that needs to be looked after. Dark or very bright colors can rub off if they come into contact with transparent clothing. On the other hand, some dark clothing (like raw jeans or some new textiles) can be neglected. Moisture increases color migration. To soften the scratches and small stains of everyday life, we recommend moistening it with a special nourishing cream leather that you can easily find in a cobbler. Do not hesitate to take your product to a specialist to ask about the most suitable cream for your shoes.

GRAINED LEATHER
Product example: Cavallo Black

The natural grain of our leather is obtained through a fulling process.

This completely natural grain is irregular and can vary slightly on the surface of the skin. This makes every product unique. Grained leather has the advantage that it is less sensitive to scratches. However, we recommend hydrating it occasionally with a special leather conditioning cream. Do not hesitate to take your product to a specialist to ask about the most suitable cream for your shoes.
