Caring for your Sandals
Sole material (as of 2017) is mainly ‘Nora Lunasoft’, a quality eva from Germany. Colours are dark brown, and a lighter tan colour.
On larger sized sandals I’m still using ‘olympic rubber’ which is harder-wearing and heavier than the nora. The Vibram Stripe is no longer available.
After-care is essential for comfort and longevity.
I recommend leather dressing – eg, Dubbin, to keep the leather soft, and protected from wear and water. Oil all the leather surfaces. Gently pull the moveable strap aside to do the hidden bits. (Note: Not all straps are moveable.) You can put your hand inside a plastic bag. Ordinary shoe polish improves the shine, but doesn’t protect against water. Leather darkens in sunlight, so store sandals away from the light.
I will fix or replace your sandals at no cost, provided you’ve taken reasonable care.
