- 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 deeply nourish the leather. Little tip: rather place the oil on a cloth before applying it to the shoe. You can then polish with a shine brush. Finally, use a waterproofing spray to protect your shoes from the rain.
For your leather soles: we give you a temporary sole protecting pads, so that you don't slip everywhere the first few times. But we recommend that you take them to your shoemaker when you receive your pair so that you can have real skates put on them. Your shoes will only last longer.
Embossed Biche logo
The little Biche is beautifully embossed, hot stamped in the leather, at the back of this design. This discreet Biche will come with you anywhere! ♡
We choose rubber soles for our sneakers. Made with natural material, rubber is robust and adhere every surface.
The quarter lining stitches
Stitches beautifully decorate the quarter linings of Billy' sneakers. On the side of the sneakers, they enhance the waxed cotton laces tied on the front of the sneakers.
Strobel assembly & side sewn
Strobel assembly consists of directly sewn upper and stem-sole when stitching, giving our shoes both robustness and high suppleness. Thanks to that, the upper perfectly follow your moves.
Besides, the sole is stick and side-sewn to the upper.
Here you have both robust and supple sneakers!
