Steps for Shoe Maintenance

1. Removing Dust

Before starting any treatment, it is essential to remove all dust and surface dirt from the shoes. Use the small brush included in the kit for this task.

Gently brush the entire surface of the shoe, paying particular attention to the seams and hard-to-reach areas.
Ensure the surface is completely clean before proceeding to the next steps.

2. Applying the Shoe Cream

The shoe cream included in the kit is formulated to nourish and protect the leather of your custom shoes. This step helps keep the leather soft and prevents cracks or damage due to dryness.

Take a small amount of cream on the larger brush with soft bristles.
Apply the cream to the shoe with circular motions, making sure to cover the entire surface evenly.
Allow the cream to be absorbed for a few minutes. This lets the nutrients penetrate the leather, providing hydration and protection.

3. Polishing

Once the cream has been absorbed, it's time to polish the shoes to achieve a professional and shiny finish. This step not only enhances the appearance of the shoes but also creates a protective barrier against dirt and moisture.

Use the polishing cloth included in the kit.
Rub with firm, circular motions until you achieve the desired shine.
Make sure to polish the entire shoe, including the edges and details.

Additional Maintenance Tips

Storage: Store the shoes in a cool, dry place, away from direct heat sources. Use shoe trees to maintain the original shape.

Water Protection: Avoid wearing custom shoes in heavy rain or snow. If they get wet, let them dry naturally away from direct heat sources.

By following these simple steps and correctly using the Stelo maintenance kit, your custom shoes will retain their beauty and functionality over time.

Proper care not only preserves the appearance of the shoes but also ensures that every step you take is comfortable and secure. Investing time in maintaining your custom shoes means investing in your style and daily comfort.
