Duckfeet should be stored in a dry, airy place. To get the longest life out your footwear, follow the care instructions below.
We recommend regularly applying a thin layer of shoe cream or leather conditioner; a small amount applied more frequently is best. Be sure to give special attention to the edges and seams, which should also be treated to maintain the leather and protect the leather from water. Let the conditioner sit for a few minutes then polish with a soft cloth.
Dirty shoes can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Let the shoes dry thoroughly, and reapply cream or conditioner as instructed above. Water-stained shoes should be treated in the same manner.
Wet shoes should be stuffed with crumpled newspaper and left to air-dry. Do not dry leather shoes using a radiator, hair dryer, or other external heat source as this will cause the leather to become dried out and porous. We recommend that you change your shoes daily so they can release the foot’s moisture and dry thoroughly.
Avoid all contact with solvents, which can dissolve the natural rubber. Crepe soles can become hard at cold temperatures. This can be avoided by storing your Duckfeet at room temperature. If the soles become hard, you can soften them back up by placing the soles on a warm (not hot) radiator. Note that only the soles, not the leather should have contact with the warm surface. If the crepe becomes excessively worn, Duckfeet are designed to be resoled. Please contact us for more information.
