Protect Your Loafers Against Weather 

Loafers use materials that can be damaged by water. Applying a waterproof or water-resistant spray can help repel moisture and prevent stains, make sure you reach all areas, especially around the welt seam. This will ensure your loafers will last you years.  

Avoid Moisture  

Its best to avoid wearing your loafers in heavy rain, wet conditions or even cleaning them with excess water. If they do get wet, allow them to air naturally at room temperature. Avoid using direct heat like heaters, hairdryers, and radiators as this will damage the leather. 

Try Using Shoe Trees  

Using shoe trees has many benefits. when you're not wearing your loafers a shoe tree will maintain the shape of the loafer and prevent creasing and preserve the structure of your loafers to ensure a longer lifespan. Shoe trees made of cedar wood will neutralise any odours and keep your loafers smelling fresh.  


Store Your Loafers Correctly 

Cool, dry places are best for loafers, keep away from direct sunlight. Avoid putting heavy objects on top of your loafers, as this will cause creases and damage their shape. 

Use Protective Soles 

A rubber sole protector is perfect for shielding against daily use while also providing you with better traction on slippery and uneven surfaces. Essential for urban environments, where concrete, asphalt, and hard surfaces can damage the soles of your loafers. However, our Easy Weejuns and chunky loafers, equipped with super durable rubber soles do not need protective soles. (link in unisex easy weejuns page and Chunky loafers page)
