Shoe care

Prolong the life of your Stinaas and look sharp on any occasion.

Taking care of your shoes is essential. Proper care and storage extend the life span of footwear, keep its shape, shine and keep the odor away. At Stinaa.J we handpick the leathers and other materials by their quality, feel and how they work around our special insoles.

Learn how to take care of your Stinaa.J shoes and most common shoe materials below.

CARE

Leather

Start with cleaning your leather shoes with a soft brush or a damp cloth (preferably microfiber). If the shoe is visibly affected by dirt, dust and especially salt and water - use a cleaning foam or shampoo, this also applies to snow stripes during colder seasons.

Let the shoes dry in a room temperature.

Apply shoe polish and polish the leather with a soft cleaning cloth or soft brush (horsehair).

Let polish set before use. Pad the shoes with a soft cloth for extra shine.

Patent leather

Clean your shoes with a damp cloth.

Apply shoe polish and rub the polish with a soft microfiber cloth.

Let dry in a room temperature.

Polish more for extra shine.

Suede

Dust off with a suede brush or special suede rubber block (eraser).
Erasers are great against scuff marks.

Use cleaning foam or shampoo for suede materials against dirt.

Let dry in a room temperature.

Use the soft brush to restore suede fibers.

Impregnate after cleaning to protect against moisture.

Textile

Dust off and clean with a dry soft brush or a dry microfiber cloth.

Ventilate regularly.

STORAGE

If you don´t use shoes for a while we advise to use shoetrees to keep the shape of your shoes. Use the wooden shoetrees (preferably cedar ones) that also absorb moist and smell good.

Ventilate your shoes before storing them away.

Store your Stinaas in shoe bags that follow with every pair. Plastic and cardboard are not suitable for footwear storage as they might trap the moist inside.
