Shoe maintenance

Here you will find some advice and recommendations as a guide to the use and care of the shoes. Adherence to the principles below will ensure your satisfaction with the footwear you purchase.


  • When making your selection, carefully consider the purpose for which the footwear will be predominantly used.
  • For walking comfort, choose the right size and the best fit. Please try the shoes on carefully upon receipt. If the size is not suitable, you have 14 days to exchange or refund.returned goods must be in their original packaging, unused, undamaged, including any accessories, capable of resale.
  • Put on footwear correctly, change it frequently, and use it in a manner and environment appropriate to its purpose. Avoid soaking leather shoes damaging the appearance of the finish and distorting the shape of the shoe.
  • Proper care and careful maintenance prolong the life of the shoes.
  • Almost every leather is dyed to the desired colour shade. Excessive foot perspiration or dampness may cause discolouration of the socks. Remember that uneven cheek grain and partial surface variation is characteristic of natural leather.
  • The product warranty covers only quality, manufacturing defect or incompleteness, but not normal wear and tear. The warranty period cannot be confused with the lifetime of the product.
  • Instructions for the treatment and maintenance of different types of footwear:

  • Clean the GORE-TEX® membrane surface with a cloth or brush and lukewarm water. Allow to dry naturally at room temperature. Avoid direct heat sources.

If the original protective layer becomes abraded or washed away with heavy use, the water repellency of GORE-TEX® footwear can be easily restored with commercially available waterproofing sprays. Always check the manufacturer's instructions on the shoe label first.

  • Remove dirt fromthe surface of smooth leather shoes with a suitable brush, soft cloth or damp sponge. Lightly cream and polish the dry leather with textile. As a rule, use creams designed for leather shoes, mixed creams are almost universally used. Reviving the appearance of leather without polishing can be achieved with self-polishing emulsions. Smooth and pile leathers are recommended to be impregnated before the first use to achieve higher water repellency of the upper material.


  • Gently brush thesurface of pile leathers - velours and nubucks - without tearing the pile. Contamination can also be removed by treatment with soft white lubricating rubber or crepe. You can also use cleaning agents designed for cleaning hair leather shoes. Special paints for these materials are used to brighten the leather is never crusted.


  • The surface of patent leather is susceptible to mechanical damage (abrasion), chemical influences, soaking and sub-zero temperatures. Remove common dirt and dust with a soft cloth, dry or wet. For the treatment of patent leather shoes, creams and cleaning agents for patent leather are used.


  • Footwear made of lubricated leather should be treated with lubricants and oils designed for this purpose. These will smooth the loss of fat from the leather, soften, soften and impregnate the leather. The treatment is always carried out on dry shoes only. Very light leathers usually darken slightly after application of lubricants.


  • The surface of plastic, leather and poromer shoes is easily cleaned with water and wiped with a soft, dry and clean cloth after rinsing.Common creams and polishes must not be used on shoes made of these materials!


  • Rubber shoes - rubber boots, galoshes, slippers are also washed with lukewarm water and then left to dry freely. The inner part is kept in good condition by regular free drying of sweat and changing the liners.


  • Textile footwear is cleaned by gentle brushing and, depending on the type of textile and the nature of the soiling, by wet wiping. It is recommended to impregnate and clean textile footwear with the means intended for this purpose. Textile shoes are not washable.


  • Closed - preferably leather - shoes include tensioners to keep the shape and prevent deformation of the shoe.


  • Leather, textile or synthetic footwear with ready-made stitching is not waterproof! Drenched footwear must not be dried in contact with or in the immediate vicinity of heat sources! drying wet shoes lined with paper at 30°C is best.


  • Before using creams, cleaners and impregnators on footwear, check that the product is suitable for the type of footwear.Follow the instructions of the manufacturers of these devices.


Attention - some products require special maintenance and use, which is pointed out to the user in special instructions.
