That is why it is useful to protect your shoes from dirt and water even before you start wearing them. You can ask for protection spray at our points of sale. This spray creates a protective layer around the shoe, making it easier to maintain. This protective layer ensures that dirt does not penetrate as quickly and you prevent black stripes on your shoes.
