Made with meticulous attention to detail and the finest quality materials, Eledera shoes are built to last. Here's how you can take care of your new shoes to cherish them for years to come.


All Eledera footwear is handmade in Italy from luxury-grade certified materials. As leather is a natural material, variations in grain and color, as well as natural imperfections, may occur. 

To take care of your shoes, we recommend following the below steps: 

  • Store shoes away from direct sunlight.
  • Before initial use, treat your shoes with a protective spray suitable for the respective material.
  • Add a rubber sole patch for additional sole protection
  • Remove excess moisture with a dry cloth or towel.
  • Dark colors may transfer, so make sure to clean each pair with its own cloth.
  • Replace your leather soles when you notice thinning. Not resoling your shoes might damage the upper leather irreparably.


  • Calf: Clean soft leathers and calfskin with a soft cloth and neutral shoe polish.
  • Suede: to remove dust or light stains, brush suede gently in the direction of the grain with a rubber or soft bristle brush.
  • Patent leather: first remove any dirt using a brush or cloth. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe your shoes. You can add a bit of water to remove any excess dirt. Use a patent leather protective spray to make your shoes shine!


The beauty of a pair of handmade leather shoes lies in the unique patterns they get use after use. But if you accidentally (and excessively) scuff your shoes, you can try following these steps (remember to first try this on a very small surface to prevent wider damage):


  • Use a suede brush first to remove dust and dirt by brushing in the direction of the nap (the little hairs on the suede surface).
  • Use a white pencil eraser or a specific suede eraser to gently rub the scuffed areas very delicately
  • Apply a suede protecting spray


  • Use a microfiber cloth to clean the leather and a white pencil eraser for small scuffs or a colorless shoe cream to replenish the leather's oils and disguise the scuff.
  • Let the cream dry completely, then buff the entire shoe with a horsehair brush. This will remove any excess cream and restore the leather's shine.


  • Remove dust or dirt using a microfiber cloth
  • Buff the scratches with a soft cloth using patent leather cream or a magic eraser sponge
  • Use a patent leather shine cream to restore the shine

Water damage

Leather sole shoes are not water resistant and repeated water exposure might damage them. If you accidentally get caught under a rain shower or two, don't worry:

  • Dry the shoes with the soles facing up. Don't use strong heat sources or leave them under the sun to dry.
  • Make sure they're fully dry before wearing them
  • Stuff ballerina flats with paper to keep their original shape

Our Moto boots are fully water resistant.

Our Lusso boots have a rubber patch for unexpected rain, but please don't wet them.
