The wooden soles of all of our clogs are hand-carved in Guadalajara from solid Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified plantation forest pine wood. Natural materials mean your clogs require a little extra TLC, so we’re here to provide you with some tips and recommendations to keep your clogs in tip-top shape. Be prepared to love them for years to come!
Caring for Wooden Clogs
We've finished our wood soles with a natural oil to help protect against dirt and moisture, so your clogs should be set for a while. After some time and wear, you can apply linseed oil or any wood oil to keep the wood looking amazing. Just make sure to follow the instructions that come with the oil you select. Refinishing the wooden sole will most likely change the colour, but will enhance the natural wood grain. Test the oil on the bottom of the shoe first to see what it looks like.
How to Clean Wooden Clogs
Wipe dirt and debris off with a dry or slightly damp cloth. If you notice any larger scrapes or dents, no worries! You can easily fix them by sanding the soles with fine grit sandpaper and refinishing them with linseed oil, or wood oil of choice. It's like giving your shoes a mini spa day - who doesn't love some pampering?
How to Prevent Damage to Your Wooden Clogs
To prevent any mishaps, be sure to treat your clogs with care. They're made of natural materials, so they're not indestructible. Avoid hitting them against hard surfaces, or you might end up with some battle scars.
Wood is not friends with water. Avoid wearing your clogs around snow melt or on rainy days, and save these shoes for dry conditions. If your clogs do absorb any moisture, allow them to dry slowly at room temperature to avoid splits or cracks in the wood.
Enjoy Your Clogs for Years to Come
So there you have it - everything you need to know to keep your wooden clogs looking and feeling their best. It might take a little extra effort, but trust us, it's worth it. After all, what's better than strutting around in a pair of sustainable, stylish shoes that are uniquely yours?
