Caring for your shoes
Depending on the finish you have chosen you will need slightly different products. We describe the different leather finishes in our FAQ page if you are not sure which leather finish you have.
For all leather finishes please ensure that the leather is first wiped over with a damp cloth, clean and dry before applying any product.
Full grain Leather For full grain leathers and smooth leathers we would recommend Famaco coloured creams, these will help cover any small blemishes while feeding the leather, we have worked with Famaco directly to colour match our Oxblood full grain leathers used on most of the styles we hold. A neutral coloured natural product that both waterproofs and feeds the leather is wax Balsam. Please see Chambers Balsam and Dr. Martens wonder Balsam for more information.
Greasy Leather The greasy finishes (which includes Gaucho) require a light oil or wax balsam to keep them fed. We recommend Chambers natural leather Balsam as it is made with 100% natural ingredients and is handmade in England. We also sell Dr Martens Wonder Balsam, a product that has the same properties. Woly Oil Protect is a fine oil spray that soaks in easily, and is applied really easily *unfortunately we cannot ship this product outside of the UK due to aircraft restrictions on flying pressurised canisters. Please see individual instructions for both Chambers Leather Balsam, Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam and Woly Oil Protect spray.
Smooth Leather We recommend Balsam to finish smooth leathers, as well as our full grain and greasy leathers as they are colour neutral, and can be left matt or shiny. We recommend Chambers Leather Balsam, made from natural ingredients the main ingredients are Coconut oil, Beeswax and Jojoba oil. We also recommend Dr. Marten Wonder Balsam, the main ingredients are Coconut oil, Lanonlin and Beeswax. Both balsams feed, clean and help waterproof the leather.
