Care instructions

Women love shoes, and Tamaris loves shoes and fashion! Tamaris products are hallmarks of fashion and quality. All women who love shoes and who are keen to preserve the timeless beauty of their footwear for as long as possible should give them regular care. Here you will find all the tips and tricks you need to make sure you enjoy our products for a long time to come.

We recommend that you use the Tamaris 4ever care products – developed specifically for Tamaris – for a particularly outstanding and pristine result.

Basic Tips

Hold the impregnating spray 30 cm from your shoe and spray the shoes 3 times. Then leave the agent to absorb for 15 minutes.

Use a matching shoe tree when you are not wearing the shoes. This substantially extends their lives.

Keep shoes in a well-aired and dry place.

Nappa and brush leather

Nappa and brush leather

The most characteristic feature of nappa and leather is that only the outside of the leather is treated. The special brush procedure creates a very shiny surface. Nappa is very soft and smooth, and therefore needs a special kind of care.

The best product to use is a wax-based impregnation spray, e.g. Tamaris 4ever protected shoes. Polish the leather with a cloth once the spray has soaked in.

Our care tip:

Apply the shoe cream always from the heel to the tip to allow the products to absorb perfectly into the fibres. Keep worn shoes on the shoe tree while cleaning to make sure that the care product also enters the creases caused by walking.
Polish the shoes until they gleam if the smooth leather looks dull after impregnation.

Nubuk and velours leather

Nubuk and velours leather

Nubuck and velours leather, sometimes known as suede, are partially roughened types of leather that need a lot of care. The inside of velours leather is made noticeably rougher. The outside of nubuck leather is roughened, which gives the material a generally softer feel. Regular cleaning and the use of a good impregnation product are absolutely crucial to keep the shoes looking beautiful.

Before cleaning you should brush the leather to loosen the fibres.

Then apply the liquid care product (e.g. the specially designed nubuck care products by Tamaris 4ever) from the heel to the tip of the shoes. Leave the shoe to dry, and afterwards use the brush to roughen the leather and restore the original fibre structure.

Our care tip:

Use a brush to remove smaller stains. Never use a rough leather brush with brass bristles on very light-coloured velours. The brass may stain the velours green!

Textiles

Textiles

Textiles are frequently used in shoe production. Textile shoes (e.g. sneakers) are particularly popular in summer. The most common forms of textiles are canvas and mesh.

Canvas is a linen fabric, while mesh is an innovative net-like material. The best way to care for textile material is to use an impregnation spray. But first you should use a brush to remove the coarse dirt.

Our care tip:

Spray the shoes regularly with a nano spray to make caring for textile shoes easier in the long term.

Synthetics

Synthetics

Shoes made of synthetic material may be very smooth or elastic.

An all-in-one cleaning mousse or gel is the best choice to care for material mixes (leather and synthetics). You can freshen up the colours by applying a shoe cream or a special nubuck shoe cream.

Cleaning and impregnation are important for exclusively synthetic materials. The best way to clean them is to apply an all-in-one cleaning mousse or gel that is suitable for use on leather types and synthetics.

Attention: Care products made of wax complexes are not suitable (these products generally refer explicitly to their wax contents).
