Textile Uppers

Textile Uppers

The uppers of our trainers are made from Cordura - an extremely durable, yet breathable textile. Cordua is relatively easy to clean, with a soft cloth and warm soapy water or specialist shoe cleaner.

To protect the textile elements of your shoes and keep them looking fresh, we recommend using a waterproofing spray.

General care & advice

General care & advice

When cleaning your shoes, we recommend using a shoe tree (stuffing them with paper or rags also works) to help 'open' materials up for better results.

Dyes used to colour the suede elements of your trainers may transfer onto other clothing (especially when wet), so we don't recommend wearing pale colours of trousers if you have purchased dark colourway of trainer.

​Never machine wash, tumble dry or leave your shoes to dry in direct sunlight.
