Tips and tricks to care for your shoes
- We would always advise that any new pair of shoes should be worn for short periods of time, to begin with to allow for bedding-in and to avoid discomfort.
- If your shoes fit slightly big, you can fill the gap with insole insert and heel liner.
- Should the embellishments of your shoes catch onto the delicate fabric of your dress (such as tulle or lace), you may try applying a few coats of clear nail polish over the embellishments.
- If your event is outdoor, we recommend using Heel Stoppers to prevent your heels from sinking into the grass.
- Avoid wet, grassy, and rough pebbled areas.
- In case your shoes get dirty, the first thing to do is to remove any loose dirt. Be careful not to rub any dirt into the material. For silk shoes, spot clean soiled areas using a soft toothbrush and water diluted in gentle soap detergent. Use a gentle circling motion to tackle stubborn marks.
- Store your shoes in their boxes or dust bags. This will keep moisture away and preserve their shapes. However, do not place shoes into their boxes or dust bags immediately after wear, to allow residual moisture to evaporate.
- Always store your shoes in a dry place away from direct sunlight. Stuff shoes with just enough unbleached and dye-free paper to help smooth the toe box and heel without stretching these areas.
