  • How To Clean, Protect, And Revive Your Shoes


    It’s all well and good to go and purchase some quality, comfortable shoes, but if you don’t know how to protect and clean them properly, they won’t look good for long!

    We share some products we stock at Grundy’s Shoes, to help clean, revive and protect your shoes.

    Before using any of these products, it’s best to lay down a towel or newspaper where you’ll be working, to prevent any damage.

    Brush any surface dirt and dust off of your shoes, and remove the laces, to prevent them from getting stains or product on them.

    El Naturalista SeaCream - $19.95

    The El Naturalista SeaCream is made of natural waxes, vegetable oils and algae. It is ideal for reviving the colour and touch of your shoes, while softening and regenerating them at the same time. If your shoes are starting to lose their glow, use some of this and you’ll be pleased with the results!

    Please note the original shade, texture and colour of the leather may slightly change due to the moisturising of the leather, and should only be used occasionally.

    How to use: First, remove dirt and dust gently using a brush or cloth. Dab the provided sponge into the SeaCream and rub in circular motions, all over the upper of the shoes. Leave to dry naturally.
