• Allow a few days for the shoes to break in and mold to the shape of your feet.
The shoe will get traction as the sole scuffs based on the way you walk.
For shoes with a leather sole, it is important not wear the shoes for the first time when it rains.
A leather sole needs some time run-in before facing the water, otherwise it will absorb and distend. A soaking wet leather sole will be less resistant and not that long-lasting.
If the shoes are completely wet owing to rain or snow, put immediately the shoe tree and lay them down laterally, far from any heat source.
Do not wear the same pair of shoes for two consecutive days - shoes should rest at least 24 hours before wearing again.
Always use a shoe horn while putting on your shoe.
Once removed, put the supplied cedar shoe tree that absorbs moisture and helps keep the original shape of the shoe.
In case a pair of shoes is not used for long period, spread a thin coat of natural wax - put them inside a fabric bag and store inside a cardboard box.
Clean, polish and condition the leather regularly to keep the leather supple.
Dust the shoe thoroughly and remove all dirt and dust
Once the shoe is clean, apply the natural Saphir wax with the brush applicator and spread it uniformly using a bigger brush. •
Wait until the wax is completely dry and after about 10 minutes, wipe with a wool cloth and polish to achieve desired gloss.
