Care for your Del Toro Footwear
* Never wear the same pair of shoes for two days in a row. This will help prevent use and will dissolve all the dampness, avoiding bad smells formation.
* Keep your shoes in their shoe tree helps them dry out and prevents wrinkles, keeping them in good condition for years.
* Store them in a cool dry place.
* Use a protective coating solution to prevent water from ruining the fabric.
* When using a spray protector, keep the spray at a distance of at least six inches.
* Aim to mist the velvet with the protectant, so that the product settles lightly on the fabric rather than soaking it.
* It is also a very good idea to brush the shoes out after the protectant has dried to reduce any matting of the velvet.
* Brush your velvet shoes after every wear. The brush will help to remove dirt and grit that accumulates and will keep the velvet from becoming crushed.
* Keep the suede protected by using a weather protector spray.
* To remove dirt and stains, brush in both directions using a horsehair brush.
* Rub the surface of your shoes with a damp towel. This brings up the nap.
* Stains may be rubbed off with a damp towel and Omnidaim Suede Cleaner.
* Allow the leather to dry then brushing the shoes with a Crepe Brush will get the suede fibers running in the same direction after cleaning.
* If there are lumps of dirt or dry scuff marks that won’t come off this way, try rubbing them off with a fingernail file. Be gentle.
