How To Care for Orca Bay Shoes
All coloured deck shoes will fade with use, especially in the sun. The leather will soften and mould to your feet with wear. This is a characteristic of these shoes that, in time, will make them "old friends" whilst on your adventures
Waxed/Siped Nubuck and Pull Up Leather: There is a high content of wax in these shoes, so initially all you have to do is wear them. Should they get scratched, a gentle rub with your finger will usually buff it out. If the leather starts to look dry, use some dubin. Do not use silicon based boot polish.
Machine Washable Deck Shoes: The washing instructions are stitched into the inside of the shoe. Wash separately in cold water, on a gentle cycle, with liquid soap. Air dry only and do not bleach. A little leather nourisher will help too once the shoe is dry.
Suede Loafers: These shoes are made from good quality German suede. To protect the suede, spray with a protective suede spray before the first wearing (available from supermarkets). Try not to get them wet, but if you do, put tissue paper inside to hold the shape and air dry them. If you get mud on them, allow to dry first and then brush gently with a soft/rubber brittled brush. When clean and dry, occasionally respray with protector.
