Caring for your VIAJIYU’S

VIAJIYU shoes are crafted from the most exquisite materials with the highest standards of quality. Your shoes are very precious and deserve care and affection. With a few simple precautions, you can enjoy your VIAJIYU shoes for years to come.

It is best to alternate wearing your shoes every two days. This will allow the leather fibers adequate air and rest. When not in use, store in the VIAJIYU shoe bags and store in a dry place away from any direct heat source. To preserve the shape of pointed shoes, we suggest storing with a shoe tree or the paper stuffing after each use to help absorb the moisture and hold the shape of the shoe. 


Contact with water or products containing solvents, oily, or abrasive elements should be avoided as they may cause unwanted staining or blisters. Although most ouf shoes are goatskin and they are waterproof. 

Our shoes are designed with maintenance in mind (we want you to enjoy these shoes for years to come). A good shoe repair can replace the “heel island” and sole after extended wear. Replace the sole well before the shoe is too worn down as once the leather is compromised it makes the shoe repairs job a lot harder. 

By taking care of your VIAJIYU shoes in this way, you will be able to wear them for many years and fully appreciate their beauty and comfort. 

A) GOATSKIN 

Goatskin suede can be maintained with a soft shoe brush to preserve the velvety texture. If shoes have been in contact with water, please allow ample time to dry before cleaning. In case of superficial stains, a rubber brush may be used.

B) NAPPA

For cleaning grained nappa leather, wipe any surface stains with a soft damp cloth. Once the leather is dry, polish it in circular strokes using a high quality colourless cream and a soft cloth.

C) PATENT

Patent leathers can be cleaned with a soft dampened light coloured cloth, and then dried with a clean cloth. To avoid color transfer, limit contact with other leathers or highly pigmented colors especially in warm weather.

D) METALLICS

Metallic leathers can be cleaned with the help of a soft and dry cloth.

E) TEXTILES

Fabric and leather shoes, or completely fabric shoes, must never be washed by soaking in water or in a washing machine. This would cause damage or migration of color and can detach the sole from the shoe. 

The textiles used at VIAJIYU have a water repellent finish that limits the risk of stains. However, the lighter coloured textiles still remain susceptible to staining. Once your textile shoes have been cleaned, please leave them to dry in the air before putting them away in their shoe bag  for storage. 

F) CANVAS/LINEN

The cotton canvas can be cleaned with the help of a brush or a lightly dampened cloth.

G) SATIN

The satin can be cleaned with the help of a very lightly dampened cloth using gentle circular movements. Because this is a delicate material, please avoid rubbing it too hard so as not to remove the anti-stain treatment. Further care should be taken not to scratch this fabric against abrasive surfaces as the fibres can fray with friction.

H) CALF HAIR

Calf hair leather is precious and delicate having kept all their natural hair due to a special tanning process.  To clean pony styled leathers, use a soft and lightly dampened cloth and always respect the direction of the hair. Avoid repeated rubbing with abrasive objects (trouser hems, brushes…) which may alter the smooth appearance of the calf hair.

G) FAUX SUEDE

The textiles used at VIAJIYU have a water repellent finish that limits the risk of stains. However, the lighter coloured textiles still remain susceptible to staining. Once your textile shoes have been cleaned, please leave them to dry in the air before putting them away in their shoe bag  for storage.
