The same goes for suede and nubuck, two types of leather that are sanded during manufacture. “The ideal is always to use a brush with hard bristles, which end up evening out the damaged material. A homemade tip is to use a nail file”, explains the shoemaker.

To avoid having to go through all this hassle, when it’s raining, prefer patent leather or synthetic shoes. They are waterproof and don’t give as much trouble if they get wet. With them, just use a dry cloth and use a homemade recipe to shine: cooking oil.

As important as cleaning, is the way to store the shoes. “Never store in plastic bags. A good tip is if you are going to store it in a box, make holes. Another good tip is to use TNT bags, which preserves the leather well. In boots, to keep in shape, you can use newspaper or pet bottle. If you keep it folded, when you use it in the next season, it will have the leather marked”, says the shoemaker.
