- Shoes care
It's a routine to be taken. Here's what you need to do:
For oily leather models: just apply a renovating oil (we sell them in our shoe shop section). It will waterproof, deeply nourish and revive the colour. Little tip: rather place the oil on a cloth before applying it to the shoe. You can then polish with a shine brush.

The sole of our Golf Balmoral is an Itshide Golf sole. The studs of this thick sole ensure a good grip, even in winter.
