Leather shoes, what care should we take?

Shoes from natural leather, need treatment, otherwise they start to look bad as well as with many wrinkles, eventually spoiling.


A quality shoe namely in leather, must be treated with some frequency.

Leather has many similarities to human skin.

Basically, it is a natural material of animal origin and, therefore, it has to be hydrated so that it does not dry out, eventually opening cracks.


Pintta recommends the following usage practices

After each use, do not store the shoes immediately. You must let them breathe to release perspiration, eliminate smells and avoid fungus. Overnight for example will be a good option.

The next day, you should insert it in a wooden or plastic mold, however if you don't have any molds, you can insert newspaper, which is also a good option because it is absorbent. This process is not mandatory, but the fact that the shoes have padding will prevent them from deforming.


If the skin is not glowing, it is because it needs hydration.

You should apply a colorless compact wax (from a can). You should avoid liquid waxes.

With the tip of your finger wrapped in a cloth, preferably flannel, you should go over the entire surface evenly and let the skin absorb the wax until the next use. This process should be repeated whenever possible.





When you verify that the skin has absorbed the wax, put them on and with a flannel cloth, rub them intensely, so that the skin is revitalized.

Between each hydration, if you want to revitalize your shoes, just wipe them with a flannel cloth and they will recover their shine.

These tips only apply to quality leather shoes such as shoes from Pintta.
