Leather:

heavy upper leather, vegetable tanning combined with traditional chrome pre-tanning.

100% vegetable tanned leather.

Sole

Natural rubber extracted in the tropics, further processed into shoe soles in Europe

Lining

Winter boots and shoes with 100% European sheep wool.

Care

We recommend applying a thin layer of leather conditioner or shoe cream at regular intervals. Dont use too much at one time, better a little less and more often. Let the shoe cream sit a few minutes and polish afterwards with a soft cloth. Use a shoehorn when you put your shoes on - they are easier to get on and the back will not be destroyed. Untie or unzip the shoes or boots completely when you remove them - so they are easier to pull off.

Moisture

Store your shoes in a dry and airy place. If your shoes become wet, fill them with crumpled newspaper and let them air-dry. When they are completely dried, you can again apply leather conditioner or shoe cream. Leather shoes should not be dried on a radiator - the leather becomes dried out and porous. If the leather gets water stains, take a cloth and make the whole shoe slightly damp. Treat the leather afterwards as described above. It is best to change your shoes daily. Give your shoes a days rest, so they can release the foots moisture and dry thoroughly.

Dirt

If the shoes get dirty, clean them with a damp cloth. Let the shoes dry thoroughly and treat the leather again with shoe cream or leather conditioner. Be attentive to edges and seams, which should also be treated to maintain the leather and protect your shoes against water. Crepe rubber soles can become hard at low temperatures, but this can be avoided by storing the shoes at a temperature between 20-25C. If the soles become hard, you can place the shoes on a warm radiator until the crepe rubber is soften again. Avoid contact with solvents. The rubber cannot tolerate it and can dissolve.
