Product Care for Sheepskin and Suede

Sheepskin and Suede Care

We recommend that all sheepskin and suede products be sprayed with a sheepskin or suede stain and water repellent before being worn.
The spray will put a protective sealer over the upper to keep the dirt and grease out and from soaking into the sheepskin or suede. The sealer will trap any dirt on the surface of the footwear, making the cleaning process easier. This should enhance the life of the shoe.

Please ensure that the fit and style are exactly what you are looking for before applying these products, as once you do apply them it will void the 30-day return/exchange policy.

How To Clean Suede Uppers

Dampen (not soak) entire boot evenly to the seams. Clean the suede with a soft, damp cloth by applying a small amount of water and suede cleaner to the cloth. Then rub two pieces of the cloth against each other creating a lather and evenly/gently clean the surface with the cloth. Then thoroughly rinse the boot by using a damp, clean cloth.   Do not pour shampoo directly onto your sheepskin or suede footwear. 
Allow the footwear to dry naturally in a well-ventilated area and avoid heat or direct sunlight. Stuff the boot with paper towels to help maintain its original shape while it dries.
Once the boot dries, buff the leather lightly with a clean suede brush to restore the nap of the leather fibers. After cleaning, spray again with sheepskin stain and water repellent to help protect against any future damage or stains.

We do not recommend putting your sheepskin or suede footwear in the washing machine and we recommend hand washing for best results.

Dampen (not soak) the entire boot evenly to the seams with cold water. Apply water and a small amount of sheepskin cleaner and conditioner to a clean, soft cloth or sponge, be sure to gently clean the entire boot evenly to prevent discoloration in the sheepskin. Rub gently on the sheepskin upper as some pieces tend to be delicate. Do not pour shampoo directly onto your sheepskin items. Do not use a wire or coarse brush on sheepskin uppers because they can sometimes scar the sheepskin. Rinse using a clean, wet cloth and be sure to remove the all the residue of the cleaner.
