Whether Bavarian loden, vegetable-tanned calfskin or Italian suede, MONACO DUCKS prides itself on using only the best materials. In this way, we offer you shoes that will accompany you for a long time with the right care and attention.
And that brings us to one of the many advantages that Loden offers - not only is it easy to clean, but most of the dirt and water roll off directly and in most cases the Loden does not get really dirty in the first place.
Loden is naturally protected by lanolin and is therefore extremely easy to care for. Lanolin protects the wool fiber from rain, dirt and odors. Additional impregnation is not necessary for your handmade shoes, but it doesn't do any harm either. We recommend that you impregnate your shoes, especially if you have a material combination of loden and leather. Regular airing and brushing with a natural hair brush also preserves the quality of the fabric very well.
For additional cleaning, you can moisten the material with a little vinegar and then brush it out with a clothes or shoe brush. Edges and stains can be removed with a damp cloth and a little curd soap.
And what about the other components of your shoes, the leather and the sole?
Rough and suede is quite open-pored. Proper care begins with regular brushing out of the shoes. With smooth leather, shoe care is used to restore oils and fats that have been lost in the leather. Shoe polish for the upper leather of a shoe maintains the elasticity, suppleness and shine of the leather.
With a leather sole, you have to make sure that the shoe is stored as dry as possible. Rubber soles are easier to care for and can be cleaned with a wet cloth.
So that your MONACO DUCKS shoes keep their shape, treat them to the luxury of a shoe tree. Wooden shoe trees smooth out creases and wick away moisture. Also recommended: Using a shoehorn prevents damage to the heel.
Loden is indestructible in its structure and unsurpassed in its properties. A material for life. With the right care, your shoe will always remain a part of you, because our DUCKS Loden has been developed for just that.
