Most of the leather uppers can be treated with a cream to erase scratches and scuffs in addition prevent drying and cracking. If you choose to do this yourself, it is imperative that you test the cream on a small discreet area prior to applying to the entire shoe. If you prefer to take them to a cobbler or leather expert, please encourage them to do the same.
As with any high-end leather soled footwear, proper maintenance must be performed by a trusted cobbler to extend the lifetime of your shoes. Although our soles are made with several layers of dense leather, constant use will eventually wear down the soles. If you intend to wear your leather soled shoes or boots on a regular basis, consider taking them to a cobbler to have reinforcements installed. This can be done even after the shoes have been worn. This is the absolute best way to extend the life of any leather soled footwear.
Suede is slightly more high maintenance than leather, as scuff marks cannot be polished away. A suede eraser can be used to get rid of small blemishes, followed with a suede brush to restore the nap.
Soaking wet shoes can be dried naturally. They can be stuffed with paper to maintain shape while drying and stored in a cool dry place. Keep away from direct heat as it will cause cracking in the leather.
