Suede is a very absorbent material and therefore marks easily. Please note suede can bleed due to the loss of colour pigments when new. We recommend using a suede protector to keep products in good condition. A good quality suede brush may be used to remove loose dirt but care should be taken as excessive use can cause permanent damage. Be careful when wearing suede shoes during wet weather conditions. When not in use, store in provided dust away from direct sunlight.
Metallic leathers have a surface foil coating that is very delicate. Keep away from sharp objects, product containing alcohol or solvent as the surface can easily be scratched and damaged. This is normal wear for this type of leather and is not considered a flaw. Once the metallic finish is removed, it cannot be re-applied. With constant wearing, the leather may develop wrinkles which is considered the natural wear of the material and cannot be reversed. The product should be wiped gently with a soft damp cloth and dried immediately away from direct heat. We would advise against the use of any cleaning products as this may affect the material.
Glitter materials are very delicate and can be damaged by very little friction. With wear, the material will lose a small amount of glitter and as this is the nature of the material, it is not considered to be a fault. If an area of the product becomes bald, the glitter cannot be reapplied. We therefore recommend glitter material products is handled with utmost care. Do not treat with any liquids containing alcohol as this will cause permanent damage.

Keep away from sharp objects as the surface can easily be scratched. This is normal wear for this type of leather and is not considered a flaw. Remove dirt with a damp cloth carefully as the surface can scratch. With wear, patent leather may eventually lose its glossy finish. Care should be taken to avoid contact with alcohol or any type of solvent.

Make sure to never let your heel tips wear down as this may cause damage to the heel embellishments. To maintain the shine you can gently wipe the surface with a dry and soft cloth.
All our soles come with a mould-in rubber sole under the toe. We have chosen this option as leather soles wear out faster and the shoes are balanced. Please note the soles needs to be maintained even under normal conditions and use and resoled regularly. We advice you to repair with a thin sole to maintain the balance of the shoe.
Top pieces are replaceable components, do not allow them to wear down. They should be repaired regularly by your local shoe repairer.
Never use artificial heat to dry shoes. Always let them dry naturally. Keep footwear in a dry place away from light to protect the condition and color of the material, maintain the shape with shoe trees. When traveling, please use provided dust bag and gently wrap shoes with crystal embellishments for protection.
