Barefoot shoes, like all other shoes, also need regular maintenance. With targeted maintenance, you can extend the life of your shoes by up to 50%. At the same time, it is no secret that the first impression of a person is also created by his shoes. And on top of everything, you just feel good in well-kept shoes.
Caring for new shoes. Preparing the shoes for the first wear.
Barefoot shoes of good brands have already been serviced at the factory, and information about this can be found on the product or from the seller. However, maintenance is expensive and many manufacturers do not do it.
Textile and suede shoes (including velor, nubuck, etc. "hairy" skins to the touch). Spray Topi Natural Repel spray on the shoes so that the surface is evenly moist. If necessary, wipe off the excess with a cloth and let it dry completely at room temperature. The natural remedy does not change the appearance of the shoes, while making them repel water and dirt. For a velvety look, brush with Topi Natural Soft Brush.
Smooth full leather shoes, like your own leather, need nourishment and protection. The best solution for this is Topi Natural Wax - natural shoe wax containing natural beeswax. Waxing helps maintain the appearance and properties of the shoe by ensuring softness and hydration. Apply an even thin layer of wax to the shoe and let it work. The natural jojoba oil and almond oil contained in Topi Natural wax deeply nourish the skin. Castor oil gives a silky shine. After some time, wipe off the excess with a soft cotton cloth and polish. Natural beeswax forms a protective layer on the surface of the shoe, which protects against moisture and dirt. The material itself remains naturally breathable.
In the case of vegan materials (e.g. microfibre, synthetic leather), care with a spray is recommended, but it must be observed according to the model. Topi Natural Repel gives shoes additional protection and makes them water repellent. After applying and absorbing the spray, wipe off the excess with a soft cotton clotha.
Daily care of Barefoot shoes - how to care?
It doesn't matter if your shoes are made of smooth leather, suede, nubuck, textile, vegan material or artificial material. The first rule is that the shoes must be clean and dry. The best way to achieve this is to wipe the shoes with a slightly damp TOPI NATURAL Bamboo Microfiber cloth immediately after wearing them. Natural ultra-fine microfiber easily removes dirt, salt, oil and other residues accumulated during the day and does not allow them to dry inside the material. Then let the shoes dry at room temperature. This ensures that the material dries evenly and the shoes retain their shape.
NB! It is extremely dangerous to use single-use pre-moistened foam "tucks". Generally, they are coated with silicone oil, which covers the dirt and closes the pores of the skin.
More thorough cleaning of Barefoot shoes - how to clean?
Before more thorough cleaning, it is advisable to brush off larger dirt and grime from the shoes. Use a brush that does not damage the material. You can find a suitable brush in the Topi Natural product range
