Gently clean stains or dust with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a little bit of mild soap on the damp cloth. Most of our clog bottoms are varnished on the sides but if the damp cloth is not enough, you can carefully use some fine sandpaper to remove stains, scratches and dents.
The open grain of our wooden bottoms allows moisture to be absorbed and keeps your feet dry and comfortable. Still, as the bottoms absorb external water, it is important to allow your clogs to dry slowly. Wipe your clogs clean and leave them in a dry place at room temperature. Do not heat the clogs, and do not try to speed up the drying process as this could cause the wood to crack.
The leather care depends on what type of leather your clogs are made of:
Vegetable Tanned Leather
Vegetable tanning is a natural process in which natural tannins from the bark and leaves of trees and plants are used. The natural process results in each skin being unique with individual variations, small spots and scars. It also results in the leather ageing beautifully with patina and usually a gradual darkening in color. Because of the natural process and finish, vegetable tanned leather is often initially sensitive to water stains, direct sunlight and heat. Therefore, avoid wearing your clogs in wet weather or leaving them in direct sunlight.
With wear, the leather fibers will become more flexible and the leather will become less sensitive to water. Be very careful if you need to use a cleaning product, cream or oil. Ask for advice when you buy the product in your shoe repair shop, and try on a small hidden spot and start out using a very small amount of the cleaner/cream/oil.
Pull Up Leather
The pull up leathers are treated with oils and waxes after being dyed which gives the leather a soft hand, or feel. When the pull-up leathers are stretched or pulled the color migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled areas. This gives the leather a beautiful two-tone effect. Also, the leather will quickly develop a patina with scratches and signs of wear, which is an intentional effect. Scratches can be reduced by rubbing the scratch with your fingers.
There are many cleaning products and creams made specifically for oily and greased leathers. We recommend you to ask for advice in your shoe repair shop, and to be careful when you try the product for the first time. Always test any new product on a small hidden part of the clog.
These leathers have an outer layer of pigment or PU which makes them easy to clean. Use a damp cloth to wipe clean any dirt on the clogs. If this does not work, try soap and water on the spots of dirt.
Nubuck and Suede Leather
To clean nubuck and suede, wipe these leathers with a damp cloth. Then use a nubuck and suede brush to remove stains on the surface of the leather. Nubuck and suede spray provides a layer of protection against wet and stains. For the best results, we recommend applying the spray when the clogs are new.
Wipe our patent leather clogs with a damp cloth. If this does not work, try soap and water on the spots of dirt.
