All Nicholas Kirkwood shoes are hand-crafted in Italy, and are made of the highest-grade materials, often utilising innovative techniques to develop custom-made leathers and fabrications. Due to the delicate nature of these materials they may develop wrinkles and are therefore susceptible to wear and tear.
In order to protect your shoes from the elements we recommend spraying them with a good quality all-purpose waterproofing leather and fabric spray from the first time you wear them. Please note you shouldn’t use any type of protective spray on metallic leathers. We then suggest you clean your shoes with a soft dry cloth and a high quality shoe cream for smooth leather or a sponge for suede and nubucks. Please don’t use any aggressive detergents containing alcohol or a metal suede brush. Before storing the shoes in their box, we recommend you fill them with tissue paper and wrap them in their dust bag.
Disregarding our advice could result in an alteration of the original state of your shoes for which Nicholas Kirkwood cannot accept any responsibility. Nicholas Kirkwood recommends using the below specialists for any maintenance your shoes require:
