- How do I clean and care for my SWIMS loafers & galoshes?
Our loafers and galoshes need to be cared for like any other footwear for a long life. Kindly follow our Loafer Care instructions HERE
- Are the Penny Loafer Alligator, Tassel Loafer Alligator Emboss and Penny Loafer Alligator Emboss waterfriendly?
Yes, they are water-friendly and washable; however we do not recommend using them in the water for swimming as the Lycra upper is highly water absorbent, hence will taker longer to dry and will feel heavier in comparison to our loafers with a nylon upper.
- My Dora Boots have white marks, how can I fix them? We use natural rubber for our Dora Boots, which needs to be regularly treated just like any leather shoe. You may use a silicone spray and a damp cloth to wipe the boots. This will keep them looking good as new!
