  • Sorry, we cannot accommodate single shoe orders at this time. Our footwear is not only sold, but also manufactured in pairs.

  • In general, we recommend the following guidelines for cleaning footwear:

    Cleaning: On a regular basis, brush away any surface dirt with a soft brush. After extended, rugged use, wash with mild soap and warm water. Be sure to rinse off all soap residue to avoid attracting more dirt.

    Drying: Open footwear fully, remove the insole and laces and dry at room temperature. Do not expose footwear to heat, as doing so can compromise any adhesives or materials used in constructing your footwear.

    Conditioning: Recommended treatment depends on construction and materials of the footwear (some treatments can alter color and appearance).
