    Once a pair of shoes has been worn they will sadly never remain in perfect condition but we have listed care recommendations below to ensure your shoes have the longest life possible.


    Always store your shoes in the duster provided placed away from direct sunlight or heat. You can also stuff your shoes with tissue paper before storing. Make sure the shoes are well ventilated before storage.


    The shape of your shoes will change over time as the leather sole moulds to the shape of your own foot and they may stretch further and wrinkle with extensive wear. To maintain the shape of the leather you can stuff your shoes with tissue paper after being worn.


    All Emme Parsons shoes have smooth leather soles that will wear down over time. If the soles become very worn down you can replace them with an additional leather sole at your local shoe repair. Affixing a new leather sole will also protect your shoes from heat and rain and to help them last longer. You can soften small stains by rubbing gently with a white eraser.

    Inner Sole

    The inner sole will become dirty or discolored over time from extensive wear. You can mix some soap and water and gently brush away the dirt but make sure water does not come into contact with the outer sole to avoid stains.

    Nappa and Calf Leather

    Leather will wrinkle and soften with age. Make sure to keep light colors away from water and other liquids. Stuffing your shoes with tissue paper when not in use will help maintain the suppleness and smoothness. You can also use a leather cleaner and leather conditioner to maintain the softness of the leather however you should do a spot test on a small piece of leather before treating the entire shoe and make sure the shoes are completely dry before wearing them. Shoes should be kept in a cool, dry place and stored in their dusters.


    Metallic finished leathers will lift over time. Avoid contact with sharp objects as this will cause the leather to tear. Shoes should be kept in a cool, dry place and stored in their dusters.


    Suede often has subtle color variations. Excess exposure to water or other liquids may result in staining so we recommend using a protective waterproof spray however you should do a spot test on a small piece of leather before treating the entire shoes and make sure the shoes are completely dry before wearing them. You can remove dirt by gently using a soft leather cleaning brush.
