5 tips

The number 5 has a special significance for CHANEL. It was Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite number, the name of her first fragrance and is our number of recommendations to keep your CHANEL shoes in their best condition.

Wear

To prolong the life of your shoes, avoid wearing the same pair several days in a row.

Protect

Keep your shoes away from high temperatures, exposure to direct sunlight and humidity. If your shoes get wet, dab dry with an absorbent, non-pilling cloth.

Care

Regularly treat soft leather, kidskin leather and lambskin leather with a small amount of shoe polish — colorless is recommended to avoid staining — and shine with a soft cloth. To help reduce the look of marks on the surface, gently rub the leather in a circular motion. Avoid any products that may alter the finish.

Storage

Allow your shoes to air out on a shoe tree, then place them in their original box and store in a dry place away from humidity and any temperature changes.

Appreciate

Designed to keep pace with women’s lifestyles, shoes change over time and with every step. Day after day, they develop a natural patina that reveals a new aspect of their beauty and history — as well as yours.

Special materials

Soft leather

To keep your shoes in good condition, regularly apply a small amount of shoe polish — colorless is recommended to avoid staining — and shine the leather with a soft cloth. If the leather gets wet, dab dry with an absorbent, non-pilling cloth. Avoid high temperatures and exposure to direct sunlight.

Patent leather

Clean patent leather using a sponge and water with a gentle detergent, then dry with a soft cloth. To prevent stains, avoid contact between light leather and dark materials. If the leather gets wet, dab dry with an absorbent, non-pilling cloth. Avoid high temperatures and exposure to direct sunlight.

Lambskin or calfskin suede

Before cleaning, remove any stains with fine grit sandpaper. Gently clean in the direction of the fibers using a special sponge or cloth for suede. If your shoes get wet in the rain or splashed, dab dry with an absorbent, non-pilling cloth. Avoid high temperatures and exposure to direct sunlight.
