Inside the Suede Care Kit2016-09-07
When we designed The Classic, we chose to make the entire collection in suede because we felt that it gave each color a unique depth and richness that we weren’t able to achieve with other textures. This richness allowed us to focus the design on clean lines and an elegant silhouette, and provide our customers with a wear-everywhere shoe that transitions seamlessly from season to season.
This Fall we are excited about our warmer colors - particularly the Persimmon, Cacao and Olive! They are easy to wear, wonderfully transitional, and particularly rich in suede. While our suede shoes are lightly treated in the factory to protect against dirt and wear, they benefit from an occasional touch-up. Gaux girls can use this kit as-needed to brush away dirt, remove signs of wear, and protect against elements of everyday life! Each kit includes the following:
Suede Cleaner - Our suede cleaner cleans and conditions all suedes and nubucks for a soft and smooth finish. First, brush your shoes to remove dirt before using the spay. Next, holding the bottle 6-8 inches from your shoe, spray the cleaner evenly around the suede upper. Be sure to allow several minutes for the cleaner to settle before using the brush to gently clean any remaining dirt on the shoe.
Brush - Our suede brush includes a wire-and-bristle brush for deep cleaning, and a silicone brush for light surface touch-ups. The silicone brush is perfect for regular maintenance, while the wire-and-bristle brush is best to use for a more significant stain.
Suede Protector - Our suede protector offers year-round protection from water and stains for suede and nubuck shoes. Holding the spray 6-8 inches from your shoe, spray the protector evenly across the suede upper. For best results, let your ballerinas dry for one hour and spray again.
We believe in quality over quantity - and investing in fewer, more meaningful closet staples. With that in mind, an investment in the Suede Care Kit is a wonderful way to ensure that your ballerinas can be your wear-anywhere (with anything) go-to shoes for a very long time.
