Details

Leather upper, rubber sole.

Heel height 2.5cm.
Italian label Sturlini uses locally sourced deerskin leather for its supple texture, breathability and softness from the first wear. It is durable but can be less resistant to harsh conditions and rubbing than other leathers such as calfskin, requiring additional care to ensure its longevity. We suggest periodically applying neutral silicone-based creams with a soft cotton cloth.
The leather is vegetable-tanned through a traditional process, giving it a rich depth of colour and unique variations – this can make the colour more sensitive to heat, sunlight and water than chemical tanning. If the leather does get wet, allow it to dry out at room temperature.

Leather Care Guide

At TOAST, many of our shoes and accessories are made from natural leather. Each different type of leather has subtle variations in colour and texture, and many have been tanned using vegetable dyes – a more environmentally friendly process of tanning that is recyclable.

Leather is durable and hardwearing, and over time it develops a beautiful patina that darkens gradually.

Looking after your leather

Before exposure to moisture, you can apply a leather/suede protector to your shoes or boots (we recommend Scotchgard) to prevent rain marking the leather. However, many scuffs and marks can be renovated by polishing with the correct products - your footwear will look all the better for it.

Many of our shoes and boots are made with leather soles which provide a beautiful finish but may be a little slippery until they are well worn in. Do take extra care when walking, especially on stairs. Leather soles are a natural product and are porous in wet conditions. Leave wet shoes to dry naturally, never by artificial heat. The addition of a rubber sole and heel pieces by a cobbler will help extend the life of your leather soles and will provide extra protection.

When you’re not wearing your shoes or boots, fill them with tissue or newspaper to help keep their shape.

How to clean polished & matt leather

You can clean your polished leather with a neutral cream polish or a correctly matched traditional coloured polish. We recommend Kiwi shoe polish which comes in a range of colours. Apply with a soft brush and polish off with a different soft brush. A final shine can be given by buffing with a soft cloth.

Be sure to never use a polish on matt leather because you will make it shiny. Instead, we recommend using a saddle soap to clean your matt leather footwear. A good saddle soap is Belvoir Glycerine.

First, clean the footwear with a damp sponge to remove any dirt and allow to dry. When dry, take a very slightly damp sponge and rub it on the saddle soap to get a covering of very slightly soapy residue that you can then apply (if your sponge is too wet, the soap will get very foamy and the final effect will not be so good).

Always leave your leather to dry naturally.

A natural leather wax can be used on accessories to treat the leather and give it a burnished shine.
