Caring For Your Shoes

Caring for Dyeable Satin Shoes

Your white dyeable satin shoes should be professionally cleaned, or spot-cleaned with International Dye & Chemical Fabric Shoe Cleaner. Dyeable satin shoes that have been dyed should be fixed with a fabric protectant spray such as Scotch Guard before attempting any cleaning or dry cleaning. On dyed shoes, test any cleaning method in an inconspicuous place first.

Caring for Leather Shoes

We recommend caring for your leather shoes regularly by applying Angelus Lustre Cream and/or Angelus Shoe Wax Polish, available in matching colors for all of our shoes.

Angelus Lustre Cream - This product expertly hydrates and protects leather, and can be buffed for a beautiful finish.  Regular application will soften leather and protect from cracking and wrinkling.

Angelus Shoe Wax Polish - This product cleans, preserves, and water-proofs your shoes, in addition to repairing scuffs and marks.  Choose the color that matches your shoes, apply with a clean cloth, and polish with a soft brush or rag. 

If you have painted or dyed your leather shoes, protect them with a Angelus Acrylic Finisher , and clean them with a wet cloth.  Do not use acetone or alcohol-based cleaners when cleaning painted or dyed shoes, as this will remove the finish.  Do not apply lustre cream or shoe polish to painted shoes.
