Breaking in your sandals
Adjust to your new shoes gradually, as they may introduce new movements to the muscles in your feet and legs. Although your shoes may feel rather rigid at first, their flexibility will increase with wear. Leather straps will become more supple and the footbeds will adjust slightly to your feet.
Caring for your sandals
Leather: Apply a good quality clear or colour active cream polish regularly to remove scuff marks and keep the leather supple.
Suede or nubuck: Apply a liquid colour conditioner to nourish the leather and a silicone based waterproofing spray to protect from staining. Use a suede brush to remove surface dust.
DO NOT IMMERSE IN WATER
Your shoes should not be immersed in water as the leather will become hard and brittle. The glues and sealants will dissolve in water.
