Care of our products is a big part of the circle. It’s an investment that requires responsibility. At Flattered, our vision is to create long-lasting relationships between our shoes and its owners. An important element is thus to take extra care of your Flattered products by cleaning, protecting and carefully maintaining them. Here we share tips on how to make your pieces last longer and explore our selection of products that help take care of your pieces.
A Small Care and Repair Guide
If your heel breaks or your sole is torn we want you to fix it. To repair and use again is a behavior we stand behind. Therefore we have made a small guide on how to do if it happens. Shoes are not just a part of your wardrobe, it is actually an investment. Spend your money wisely and you will get more out of it, better comfort, better foot health, and also a sense that you are helping to save on our natural resources.
Shoes need rest
Shoes also need to rest, so do not wear the same shoes day in and day out.
Keep the shape
To maintain the shape of your shoes, you should use cedar shoe blocks.
If your shoes tend to smell bad due to foot sweat, there are two simple tips. The first is to change socks and shoes more often than usual. The second is to use shoe blocks in cedar. Cedar absorbs moisture and odor effectively!
If your shoes are getting white stains it might be salt. It’s not very beautiful and it will harm your shoes. Mix some water with white vinegar or a few drops of lemon juice. Wet a piece cloth and wipe carefully. Use polish or spray afterward to your shoes some extra love.
Our shoes come with a thunit outsole. Thunit is a type of resin rubber that lasts longer than regular leather soles so there's no need to replace or add an extra sole to reinforce it after purchase.
If your outsole starts to tear, make sure to give your shoes to a certified cobbler before it's too late or other parts of your shoe may tear as well. They are professionals and will make your shoe look as good as new again.
Avoid unnecessary wear and tear
When putting shoes on, use a shoehorn to avoid the back of the shoe losing its shape. When taking them off, make sure to always untie laces generously to avoid unnecessary tearing.
When not wearing your shoes, make sure to store them in the Flattered dustbag you received when making your purchase. If they’re dirty, clean them before putting them away. Use cedar shoe trees to avoid wrinkles and prevent them from losing their shape.
