How to wear and care for your Will’s Vegan Shoes

We use high quality vegan leathers and suedes to make our footwear, you will find your purchase requires little attention to keep looking as good as new.

Our vegan footwear does not spoil or stain when it gets wet. It performs really well in wet and muddy conditions. Unlike leather or suede our materials do not spoil or mark even when in contact with road salt and snow slush in winter conditions.

Unless stated otherwise in the product description our footwear is water resistant (please check the Wear & Care information on the products page).

This means you can wear for extended periods of time in light rain, walk through shallow puddles, walk through wet grass, light snow and have dry feet.

We do not recommend wearing in deep snow, deep puddles, running water or extended periods of heavy rain. In these cases water will penetrate the footwear - usually through the lace holes or around the tongue giving you wet feet.

It is fine to wear our footwear in colder temperatures, however unless specified our products are not insulated. We recommend wearing a thick insulating sock to keep your feet warm in freezing temperatures or you may get cold feet.

Our footwear is easy to clean. Here are some general cleaning instructions:

Vegan leather uppers

Wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. Polish can be used to bring out a shine and return colour. Any synthetic product should work just fine, apply as described in the instructions. It is recommended you test an inconspicuous area first.

Vegan suede uppers

Wait until dry then brush with a suede brush or something similar. For more extreme cases you can wipe down with warm water with a mild soap solution and a cloth or brush. To dry pad down with paper towels or a towel. Do not place too close to direct heat sources as this can damage the material. You should not expect water marks as the material does not mark or stain like conventional suede when it gets wet.

Please do not apply waterproof or other protective treatments. This is because these treatments are not necessary and can mark and damage the materials. These treatments are usually meant for leather not synthetics and they do not react well when applied.
