It is very important to properly maintain your shoes in order to maximize their lifespan.

Ideally, the shoe should be brushed every week and spray applied every two weeks.

Finally, in the event of accidents and excessive soiling of nubuck leather, it must be cleaned with a special nubuck shampoo.
