With extensive wear the heel tip will naturally deteorate. It is recommended that these are changed before the inner heal begins to show. This is important as having an unstable heel can lead to balancing issues and effect the shape of the entire shoe.
It is only natural for the shape of the shoe to change over time. Not only will your shoes mould to the shape of your own foot but they may stretch further with extensive wear. After extensive wear it may begin to wrinkle. A simple method of prolonging the suppleness of the shoe is to stuff your shoes with tissue paper after being worn. Ensure the shoes are well ventilated before storage
We can offer some tips for maintaining the shoes:
In the event, the soles become very worn down, we recommend replacing them with an additional leather sole as soon as possible.
It is not recommended to walk on wet grass as shoes will get dirty and the stains are very difficult to remove. Affixing a new leather sole is also recommended as this will protect them from the heat and rain and they will last longer.
Please note that small stains on the leather sole can be softened by rubbing gently with a white eraser.
A traditional method of doing this is to mix some soap and water and softly brush away the dirt.
Ensure that there is no water which comes into contact with outer sole as this may stain the fabrication.
If the inner soles need further attention, please seek the guidance of a professional leather cleaner or expert.
