HOW TO LOVE YOUR VELLIES

​Some leather shoes need special care from time to time. Clients can wear vellies ‘as is’ and they will age well into a vintage worn-in look or use leather Spray protectors, leather food and shoe shampoo.

Vellies will comfortably shape to the contours of your foot as you break them in. 

Protection is better than cleaning we highly recommend a versatile protection spray as Suede and Nubuck leather can stain from oil and extreme dirt.  Regularly treating vellies with a protective spray that will repel water and stains can prolong wear (spray can be used every few months). 

If vellies have artwork on suede leather, take care not to soil suede with polish, only use spray protector on this area.  We recommend to avoid or minimise scrubbing and cleaning of artworks.  If they do get dirty test a small area before doing whole shoe.  Use a soft bristle brush.

Alternatively clients can also email us for advice:  hello@vestibul.co.za
