What care should I take while wearing leather soles?
While leather soles are extremely sleek, classic & elegant, they are not slip resistant. If you are not used to wearing leather soles, you should wear them for 5 to 7 times on alternate days until you get used to them. Leather soles need to be kept away from water.
It is also important to know that it takes 5-7 wears to break into a full leather shoe which is basically your feet getting used to the leather sole.
I have worn the shoes only once and there are wrinkles. Why is that so?
It’s completely natural for genuine leather to wrinkle and develop creases on usage. Depending on the type of shoe, leather creases more or less.
I bought a shoe whose colour seems to be fading now. Why is that happening?
It's not colour fading but leather weathering in hand tamponated shoes, which is natural and happens with continuous usage. It’s likely to happen in the area where the shoe flexes. This can be maintained by using appropriate shoe cream or waxes to match the colour of the leather.
This normally occurs in shoes which are hand tamponated. Hand tamponation is a technique where shoes are hand painted using organic dyes by expert craftsmen.
What is the use of a shoe horn?
Usage of shoe horn adds to the life of the shoe. Depending on the length of the shoe horn, it also helps you wear the shoes more easily while standing. It protects the quarter (back area) of the shoe from getting damaged. RUOSH shoe horn is made from Steam Beach Wood with a sleek design and available across excsluvie outlets.
Why should I buy a shoe tree?
Shoe tree reduces the chances of leather wrinkling or creasing which in turn retains the original shape of the shoe. It also increases the life span of the shoe by absorbing the moisture generated from perspiration unto itself and not into the lining of the shoe.
RUOSH shoe tree is made from premium cedar wood and the powerful aroma of cedar keeps shoe odours at bay. It's available in 3 sizes Small: 39 to 41, Medium: 42 to 43, Large: 44 to 45. It has springs which allow to compress and take shape of the shoe.
Does wearing my leather shoes in the rain ruin the leather?
Leather and water don’t go well together. Hence, it’s recommended that any leather shoe/ accessory be kept away from water.
What should I do if my leather shoes get wet?
If it gets wet, insert a shoe tree inside the shoe and dry them naturally. If it is soaked wet, remove the excessive water from the leather by stuffing paper until paper comes out dry. Insert a shoe tree and let it dry naturally. Remember not to use artificial techniques like hot blowers to dry the leather.

We sell water resistant shoes. The leather is specifically treated for water resistance and the rubber sole gives you a better grip on wet surfaces. A special water resistant adhesive used, prevents water from seeping in through the stitched seams.
