1. Please avoid using water to clean your Grape Leather shoes. Water causes leather to shrink and it may dry the Grape Leather out over time, which can make your shoes stiff and wrinkly. 2. To remove dirt or debris from your shoes, please use a soft-bristled brush. 3. Remove the shoelaces before you clean your shoes to protect them from dirt. (If your laces are dirty, please clean them using a washing machine or warm soapy water.) 4. To remove stubborn scuffs and marks, please use a leather cleaner and soft brush. Put a small amount of leather cleaner on a soft-bristled brush (please check your chosen leather cleaner instructions first) and gently wipe the surface of the Grape Leather with the bristles. Work the cleaner into the Grape Leather by moving the brush back and forth, as if you’re dusting your shoes. Continue brushing until the Grape Leather is restored to its former glory!
A few tips Measure your feet while wearing socks to get the most accurate size. Also measure your feet in the afternoon because usually legs swell by the end of the day. Before measuring, make sure feet are flat and that you’re standing on the entire surface of the foot.
Step 1 Fix a sheet of paper on the floor (surface must be solid), aligning it along the wall. Stand upright, facing away from the wall, and place your foot so that the heel rests against the wall.
Step 2 Ask someone to mark the most protruding point of the foot on the paper with a pen. Important to keep the pen perpendicular while you do this. Repeat the same for the other foot, as sizes may vary.
Step 3 Using a ruler, measure the distance to the point marked on paper for each foot.
