As a brand, we strive to create wearable luxury by using premium materials to craft our footwear. When using high quality natural materials, there are a few more steps to take to ensure that your footwear lasts to its full lifespan. We suggest taking the time with a little maintenance on your leather shoes to help them last a lifetime. The following care guidelines are to provide information on how to care for and better understand your shoes.
General Leather Care
We recommend investing in a good quality leather conditioner. Keeping the leather well-conditioned helps the leather stay hydrated, as well as buffing away any minor scuffs or scratches.
Stretched Leather Soles
Using a stretched leather sole provides a luxurious finish and being a soft natural material allows the foot to breath during wear. These are not suitable for heavy duty wear. Avoid contact with abrasive surfaces such as sand and gravel as this will erode the leather. If you would like your stretched leather soles to be more durable we suggest seeing your local cobbler who can fit a rubber sole.
Please take care with perfumes, salt, sunscreens, solvents, moisturisers and fake tan. These products will cause the metal hardware to discolour and erode over time. Store away from light and out of any moisture.
Please read our care guides carefully to ensure your La Tribe pieces live a long and happy life. Please note that general wear and tear is not covered under warranty.
Leather shoes will wear naturally over time.
Avoid wearing in wet weather, as this can cause damage to the leather. If your shoes do get wet, take care when drying and do not use a heat source to dry them. Dry in a well ventilated, airy location and not in direct sunlight.

When storing your La Tribe shoes we recommend keeping your shoes in the dust bag provided when they are not being worn. Ensure they are not flattened so they retain their shape.
Always store your footwear away from light and heat and out of any moisture.
To keep the leather area clean, use a dry or slightly damp cloth. We recommend using slow gentle motions when cleaning as to not apply pressure on the leather.
