How to clean leather shoes?

  12. 08. 2019      How to Dress Up


I have long been looking for some proven tips on how to clean leather items (eg leather shoes) I don't want expensive pieces to crack and age quickly. Could you advise me how to take care of this material in general?

Thank you



Milá Jano,

Thank you for your inquiry. Leather is a beautiful and durable material, but we have to take good care of it. ;)

Best Friend: Brush

Smaller stains and dirt are best removed from the shoe with water and soap. But it is not enough for resistant stains and abrasions. If the shoes are soiled, use special products intended for cleaning resistant stains, brushes! The footwear treatment procedure is as follows:

1. Remove dirt with a brush

Dirt can weaken the fibers in your leather shoes, causing irreparable cracks. Gently brush the shoes after each use.

2. Remove stubborn stains with soap

Apply a little soap to the shoe and then gently, in a circular motion, with the soft side of the brush / sponge, wiping off the shoe. Rather, repeat several times, with a little water, do not put a lot of water at once.

3. Apply a polishing cream and apply it using a shoe brush

Use a clear or suitably colored polishing cream and spread with a dry cloth all over the shoe.

4. Polishing!

Allow the cream to soak for a few minutes after application. Then polish them again with a clean, soft cloth and a polishing brush.

5. Impregnation is essential

After cleaning and polishing your shoes, apply a protective spray from a distance of 30 cm. Your leather shoes will remain soft, flexible and waterproof. Repeat the application of protective spray at least four times a year, especially if you live in an area with frequent rainfall.
