LEATHER CARE GUIDE

A step-by-step guide to cleaning your leather SORELs.
The city is unpredictable, and acquiring scuff marks, nicks, and dirt along the way is inevitable. That’s why we wanted to provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to care for your genuine leather—so you can keep that fresh-out-of-the-box look for as long as possible.

BEFORE STARTING: Determine what type of leather your SORELs have. (This information is outlined in your product’s description section on SOREL.com.) Then, follow the instructions based on your type of leather your shoes are made with.

FOR WATERPROOF LEATHER:
Step 1: Use a medium-bristle brush to remove dirt, dust, or any debris (we recommend using one made specifically for cleaning leather.)

Step 2: Wipe shoes down with a damp cloth.

Step 3: Let dry in a cool, dry place.

FOR OILED LEATHER/DRY-TANNED LEATHER:
Step 1: Remove dirt, dust, or debris, with a dry cloth.

Step 2: Use a clean cloth dipped in a bit of leather cleaner all over shoes.

Step 3: Wipe shoes down with a damp cloth to remove residue.

Step 4: Let dry in a cool, dry place.

FOR NUBUCK/SUEDE LEATHER:
Step 1: Use a soft brush to remove dirt, dust, or any debris (we recommend using one made specifically for nubuck/ suede leather.)
*Note: leather is a natural product and will have its own unique characteristics, marks, or imperfections. Some leather used in our footwear may have color variations, small markings or scratches. These are natural and part of the character and do not affect the quality or durability of the leather.
