About our leather
Once our company started growing, we also started having our leather custom produced.
Color: One of our aims is to always product styles that are versatile, so you can have quality shoes over quantity of shoes. That is why we also chose leathers in a soft brown tone and a lightly glossed black for our AW18 classic collection. They will match any outfit and can be used for every day adventures as well as those special moments you get dressed up for.
Texture & grain: This leather is buttery soft and so lightweight, making them perfect for little walkers and feather light on adult feet. Each hide is unique which means each shoe is unique. When looking closely at your shoe, you’ll be able to notice natural markings on the hide that assure you you’re getting the real deal; gorgeous 100% genuine leather.
Leather is a natural material that needs to be loved and cared for in order to live it’s longest life.
Scuffs happen, especially when little ones are playing, but you’ll be surprised how much a leather conditioner can renew and protect your shoes. Genuine leather is so durable as long as it’s treated with love. Moisturize your shoes with a conditioner consistently and they’ll love you for it. You can purchase our favourite leather conditioners and protectors here.
Tip: Always make sure to clean your shoes before you apply a conditioner or the dirt will get rubbed in and possibly stain your shoes. There are lots of leather cleaning products available online, however, for minor stains, a damp cloth usually does the trick.
Although we do not recommend that our shoes be worn in heavy rainfall or snow, sometimes that can be hard to avoid. We recommend waterproofing them before us in the snow with our snow guard protector available here.
When black leather is scuffed it needs to have the color reapplied to the shoe to cover the scuff. We have tried numerous products and the one we love the best can be purchased here. It is made in Germany and combines the right amount of natural oils, waxes, lanolin and pigments to restore moisture to leather, while also providing a soft and natural shine. Ideal for use on soft leather shoes and boots.
