Shoe Care FAQs
(Back to FAQ Topics)

Chlorophyll from grass binds to the fiber of your shoe, making it challenging to remove but not impossible. Since athletic footwear is made from different materials such as nylon, canvas, leather and sometimes suede, different cleaning solutions and procedures are required for each portion of the shoe. We recommend having them professionally cleaned.

Heat and dry air can damage this exotic skin causing it to peel or flake. To avoid this from happening, never leave your shoes in direct sunlight or near central heating air vents. Also avoid getting your python shoes or boots wet. The skin absorbs water, causing damage to occur. If you do get them wet, let them dry naturally.

Since most stains on satin wedding shoes are food related (wine, cake), or from tar, grass, sea water, sand, etc., you’re best bet of getting them cleaned would be to take them to a reputable dry cleaner who specializes in spot removal. You can take them to a cobbler first who will either clean the shoes or make recommendations and referrals.
