Snow, it doesn’t happen very often across the whole of the UK, but when it does it usually catches us by surprise. One of the worst things is not being prepared with right sort of clothing. We should all have a winter coat, hat and gloves at the ready anyway, but we do not always consider footwear. Make sure you’re prepared for the wintery conditions with a pair of sturdy brogue boots such as our Bourton tan, which with a thick studded rubber sole will keep your feet comfortable in the dropping winter temperatures.
With these changing conditions its also important to look after the shoes on your feet with regular protection and upkeep. Here are some guidelines for looking after your shoes to ensure that they retain their excellent appearance and comfort in wear for years to come.
Leather shoes need regular cleaning and care with wax polishes or shoe cream. Select the closest colour to your shoe – if in doubt use a natural shade. Before polishing remove all surface dirt and dust with a damp cloth then ensure that the shoes are dry before starting.
Due to the fine nap of these leathers, extra care should be taken when cleaning. Gentle use of a suede brush with a suede cleaner will remove most stains. If your shoes get wet, let them dry naturally at room temperature, and then brush them gently with a suede brush.
