Care Guide

Taking proper care of your OAK shoes ensures they stay looking great and last longer. Here are some simple tips to keep your footwear in top condition:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Gently brush off dirt and debris with a soft brush or cloth. For stubborn stains, use a damp cloth and leather conditioner or mild soap. Always test in an inconspicuous area first.
  2. Allow Them to Breathe: After wearing, give your shoes some fresh air. This not only helps prevent odors but also extends their lifespan.
  3. Protect from Water: Use a waterproof spray to shield your shoes from rain and spills. Air-dry wet shoes naturally, keeping them away from direct heat sources such as heaters or direct sunlight.
  4. Shoe Trees: Invest in shoe trees made of cedar or other absorbent materials. They maintain the shoe's shape and help control moisture and odor.
  5. Storage: Store your shoes in a cool, dry place. Avoid piling them on top of each other, as it can cause deformities.
  6. Condition Leather: For leather shoes, use a leather conditioner to keep the material soft and supple. Apply it sparingly and evenly.
  7. Suede and Nubuck: Use a soft brush to maintain the texture of suede and nubuck. A suede eraser can remove minor scuffs.
  8. Professional Care: For intricate or stubborn issues, consider professional shoe repair services. They can work wonders in restoring your favorite pairs.

Remember, each type of shoe may have specific care requirements. With a little attention and care, you can preserve your shoes for the years to come.
