Vegetable Tanned Leather Care

  • To clean Veg Tan Leather, use a slightly damp cloth.
  • By treating it with a leather conditioner, you restore the natural oils and lubricate the leather fibers, preventing scuffing, cracking, and staining. The leather conditioner also provides a mild weather barrier.

Nubuck Leather Care

  • Regularly brush Nubuck leather with an all-natural horsehair shoe brush to maintain natural oils and prevent permanent stains.
  • For spills, wipe off excess fluid with a clean towel and clean with a damp cloth.
  • Use a soft rubber shoe brush for marks and light, dry stains.
  • Protect with Bickmore's Gard-More Water & Stain Repellent to guard against water, stains, rub-off, and scuffing.

      Wooden Base Care

      • The wooden bases feature a lacquer finish to prevent staining or discoloration.
      • Avoid using water on the wood base to prevent raising the grain.
      • Use an eraser for certain marks or stains.
      • For stubborn stains, carefully sand with fine grit sandpaper, protecting the leather with a clean cloth.

      Special Care for Nude Vegetable Tanned Leather

      • Nude Veg Tan is untreated and highly susceptible to stains.
      • Over time, it will develop a leather patina that evens out some stains.

      General Tips

      • Always test any leather care products on a small area before applying to the whole clog.
      • Be mindful of where you step or walk while wearing wooden base clogs to avoid cracking or chipping.
