When to take care of leather shoes?
For the leather shoe care with a pigmented finish, you can use our leather soap with our brush to clean the leather, then our leather cream to re-hydrate it. Use our waterproofing to protect your leather. For the leather shoe care with an aniline finish, the task is more complex and more interesting. Quite often, people who own shoes of this type like to look after them, to get marbled colours, with good depth, a nice brightness with a good polishing. To realize this type of work, we would recommend you to use leather degreaser stripper, the colorant balm or the hydrating milk mixed with a leather colorant and our fixative or waterproofing.
NB: The pigmented finish has got the characteristic of plain colours. A drop of water wouldn’t penetrate the leather. It is a very robust finish. The aniline finish has got the characteristic of shaded colours. A drop of water would penetrate the leather. It often lacks protection.
