We take a great deal of care to make sure you choose the right pair of shoes or boots at Gabucci Bath. The advice below will help you keep them in tip top order.

Leather Shoes

Leather shoes need regular cleaning and care with wax polishes or shoe cream. Select the closest colour to your shoe – if in doubt use a natural shade. Before cleaning ensure that the shoes are dry and remove all surface dirt and dust with a damp cloth. Antiqued finishes should be handled carefully.

Suede and Nubuck Shoes

Due to the fine nap of these leathers, extra care should be taken when cleaning. Gentle use of a Suede brush with a Nubuck / Suede cleaner will remove most stains. If your shoes get wet, let them dry naturally, and then brush them gently with a Suede brush. Please note – Nubuck and Suede leather cannot be guaranteed as entirely colourfast and therefore some loss of colour may occur on very rare occasions.

Leather soles

Leather soles are natural products which offer a breathable, flexible sole. Because of its porous nature, leather sole will let in water, therefore we do not recommend excessive use in wet conditions. After a period of time the sole will wear even under normal conditions, making it necessary for the sole to be repaired.

Shoe Repairs

All shoe repairs no matter what the cause should be carried out by a professional shoe repairer or cobbler. Poor shoe repairs could result in a dangerous pair of shoes and could increase the risk of slips, trips and falls. Please note – any home repairs will also invalidate your manufacturers guarantee.
