Shoes and Leather Care

ImageBefore they are worn for the first time, new shoes should be given a basic waterproofing treatment to protect them against deeply engrained dirt and penetrating moisture. Waterproof each shoe uniformly two to three times from a distance of 20 cm. Use a COLLONIL waterproofing spray suitable for the type of material. In no case the application shall be too wet. Instead, apply the spray thinly several times. After a sufficient drying period, smooth leather can be polished and suede leather can be roughened.

ImageThe long-term efficacy of any waterproofing treatment is reduced by mechanical strains during walking as well as by climatic effects. Therefore, depending on the frequency of wear and strain, leather should be retreated with a waterproofing product regularly. Upper materials and leather soles alike should be treated regularly. Because leather loses its fats and oils through regular use, causing it to become hard and brittle, it is advisable to use a COLLONIL care product regularly.

We recommend the coloured care products for colour enhancement. Leather should be cleaned depending on its type and its soiling. Cleaning should always be carried out at regular intervals before waterproofing and care. Always try dry cleaning first because this is not so hard on the leather. Damp or wet cleaning is advisable for stubborn soiling. Afterwards renew the waterproofing and treat with a care product.

COATED AND SPORTIVE SMOOTH LEATHER
Coated smooth leather has a thick coat of colour. The surface is relatively robust due to its dressing. Smooth leather is processed on the grainy side (outer side of the skin). It has a smooth, grained, structured, shiny or mat look.

For waterproofing use:
WATERSTOP (spray) - heavy duty waterproofing spray for smooth leather. Its dirt- and water-repellent effect simplifies later cleaning
or LEATHERGEL - waterproofing gel for smooth leather. It is solvent-free.

For cleaning use:
CLEAN & CARE - conditioning cleaning foam, highly effective and gentle cleaning, solvent-free and without propellants
or SHAMPOO - cleaning concentrate for all materials, which removes normal dirt, snow and water stains easily
Check all materials for colour fastness prior to use.

For care and colour reviving use:
WATERSTOP (tube with sponge applicator) - colour care for smooth leather with almond oil, which makes colours shine, keeps leather soft, supple and breathable
or TREND - colour care in the current fashion for smooth leather

FINE AND VERY SOFT SMOOTH LEATHER SUCH AS NAPPA LEATHER AND SPECIALLY FASHIONABLE FINISHED LEATHER
Fine smooth leather is also processed on the grainy side (outer side of skin). It has a smooth, fine, structured and usually very soft look. Nappa leather and specially fashionable finished leather are rather soft smooth leathers which are often quite hygroscopic and therefore require special care and conditioning products.

For waterproofing use:

RUSTIC GREASED LEATHER AND OILED NUBUCK
Greased leather and oiled nubuck are specially finished leather, whose surface is provided with a high concentration of greases.

For waterproofing use:
RUSTICAL (spray) Waterproofing spray for rustic leathers with conditioning Wales and oils, it enhances the special look of greased leathers. The dirt- and water-repellent effect simplifies later cleaning

  •  Suede: is the meat side of the animal skin (inner side of the leather skin) with a typical fibre structure.

The Tex membranes are meanwhile processed with practically all upper materials and are located between the upper and lining layers. They are impervious to wind and water as well as breathable. Well-known Tex materials are Gore-Tex and Sympatex.

The upper material is exposed to all climatic effects without any protection. In order to protect the upper materials effectively and to preserve the function of the membranes permanently, these materials require special care.
