Many of our products are made with metal details. The metal we use is called Zamak, finished with an eco-bath and free from nickel. Due to natural aging, accessories made from this alloy may lose their luster or darken when exposed to air or light. For a quick fix, mix white vinegar with water or soap that has a neutral pH level. Then dip a sponge in the mixture and clean the pieces gently.
Placing your product in a dust bag when not using it will keep it safe from humidity, which can cause rust. Remember though that a few blemishes here and there will just give your shoe character! We want you to use and love your product and believe in accepting that time always makes its mark.
