How to clean your leather clown shoes

Follow the instructions below to keep your leather clown shoes looking fabulous.



1. Remove dirt by brushing with a soft nylon brush, like an old toothbrush. Then clean with leather cleaner made specifically for smooth leathers, like ‘Neutra’ or ‘Lexol Leather Cleaner’. After cleaning, let the shoes dry for a few minutes.

2. The best type shoe polishes are cream or paste. Shoe polish paste will get you the best shine, but it takes a bit of work! Shoe polish cream is available in more colours and applies easier than the paste. Rub small amounts of polish into the shoe with a soft cloth or dauber brush, and allow it to be absorbed into the leather. After a few minutes, shine your shoes by buffing them with a soft cloth or shoe shine brush made of horse hair.

3.  Treat leather with a leather conditioner after it has dried completely. Conditioning your leather shoes will help soften and moisturize the leather, and protect them from drying out and cracking. Rub small amounts of conditioner into the shoe as the leather will only absorb what it can.


Protecting your footwear investment

Weatherproofing your leather shoes will help to protect them from water and other elements that can ruin the finish and shorten the life of your shoes. Weatherproofers come in two types:  Wax based Waterproofers and Spray protectors.

Wax forms a protective layer over the surface of the shoe or boot and is absorbed into the leather. This provides a better barrier against water, but the wax and oil will alter the appearance of the leather. We recommend ‘Montana Pitch Blend’.

If the appearance of the shoe or boot is of more importance than waterproofing, a spray protectant should do the trick. By providing a breathable barrier against mild to moderate wet conditions and dirt, this type of weatherproofing product is virtually invisible on your shoes or boots.
