Check out these practical tips for making sure our top-quality materials last for years to come.
Care by Leather Type:
Suede + Nubuck
You can get special brushes and erasure blocks to keep these soft and supple materials at the top of their game. One warning though: avoid using creams because they will change the leather’s texture and appearance.
Nappa + Other Smooth Leathers
Replenish these leathers’ natural oils with mink oil or a neutral conditioner. You can also use a similar or like-color cream that matches the color of your Wolkys. Just make sure to test it in a discreet area before treating the whole shoe.
Wipe patent leather clean using a damp cloth, lukewarm water and plain soap. Afterwards, use a dry, smooth cloth to polish for that mirror-like shine.
Fashion Leather (Multi-Fantasy, Stone Print, Caviar Print, Croco Print, Crash Leather)
For all fashion leathers we recommend cleaning dirt or just moisturizing the skins with leather lotion. This is non-abrasive and helps clean off dirt while caring for the leather skins.
Wolky uses only the finest leathers for our one-of-a-kind insoles. To properly maintain their softness and strength, clean and polish regularly with a neutral shoe cream.
*Leathers that have been stained by coffee, food, paint, etc. cannot be removed easily. We recommend seeking a reputable shoe cobbler through your Wolky dealer or locally who can evaluate the severity of the stain and offer solutions.
