Top tips on looking after footwear
Choosing the right care products for your shoes/boots not only gets them back into shape again but also extends their service life.
Cleaning the outside of your shoes
Get rid of surface dirt by brushing with water and removing the dirt particles. You should look to remove dirt and stones regularly from the sole of your shoes.
TIP: Rub the sole of your shoes from time to time with sandpaper or against an asphalt or loose gravel surface to roughen up the surface of the sole.
Cleaning the inside of a shoe
Clean your shoes with lukewarm water and a soft brush. Shoes without a Texapore lining can also be cleaned using a hard soap.
Air your shoes thoroughly after taking them off and ensure they are dry. You can take out the insole.
Please remember the basics: open up the shoes and let them dry slowly in a well-ventilated place; avoid direct heat such as the full force of the sun, radiator or fireplace (otherwise the shoes will become brittle and crack)!
Keeps leather supple
Our Footwear Beeswax has been specially designed to treat leather shoes, and should be applied regularly. thus reliably caring for the materials and keeping out the wet.
Only apply to clean and dry shoes. Rub into the leather surface sparingly. Apply a second coat for an even better result – leave to soak in between coats – then polish. Remove any surplus beeswax from the sole and stitching and let the footwear dry overnight. Leather may darken over time.
Cleans and waterproofs in one go
Our Footwear Proofer spray is ideal for all shoe/boot types. It stops water from seeping in, prevents the leather from drying out and lets functional materials continue to breathe.
Apply to clean shoes. Shake the bottle well and spray onto the surface of the shoe/boot from a distance of 15 cm. Remove any excess from the sole and stitching. Let shoes dry completely before wearing them again.
