How to care for your leather shoes

Here are La Tribe's Top Tips

La Tribe take pride in creating high quality footwear by using premium materials combined with superior craftsmanship. Here are some of La Tribes top tips in keeping your leather footwear in good condition to last you season after season.

1.  Invest in a good quality leather conditioner
“By keeping the leather well-conditioned, it helps the material stay suppled and hydrated which helps prevent any cracking. As well as hydration, a leather conditioner will buff away any minor knicks or scratches.”

 

2. Don’t forget about your soles
“We use a rubber sole base on some of our footwear as it is beneficial to shoes designed for heavier duty wear. It also means that the sole is waterproof and provides a more comfortable wear on harder surfaces, for longer periods of time. Our soles are important and need to be cared for, over time if your soles to start to show wear and tear we recommend taking them to a shoe repairer to advise on replacing the sole.”

3. Store your footwear with care
“All of our iconic suede shoes and boots come pre-sprayed with waterproofing. This helps prevent water marks and general staining. We also suggest storing your suede footwear in the La Tribe dust bag that they came with, this will help prevent dust build up or sun-fading.”
