Our shoes are made out of all nature materials that they need time to recover. While they are in use, you continuously give heat, pressure and moisture to the shoes. The longer these elements are given to the shoes the shorter the shoes will lasts. By giving your shoes a day off, it will extend the life of your shoes at least three times.


05. Do not wash your shoes.

All leathers are not washable. If you machine wash or soak sneakers into the water to wash out dirts on your shoes, it might harden your shoe leather. When shoes get dirty, use different methods for different parts of the shoes. For the rubber part, use wet tissue or wet cloth to wipe out dirts.


06. Do not store your shoes in a shoe box.

If you store shoes in a shoebox for a long period of time, it gives higher chance of trapping heat and moisture in side of the shoebox and that could give negative effect on your shoes. The heat and moisture damages your shoes especially in a humid climate like rainy season of the summer.

09. Please use a suede brush to clean them.

In case of suede leather, use suede erasers to clean particular part and use brush lightly to settle the surface. For general plane leather, use dry cloth to clean the surface.
