Marching Shoe Cleaning Tips
A great feature of DINKLES shoes is that you do not need special or expensive shoe care products to keep them looking great.
The leather shoes in the DINKLES line like the VANGUARD and STINGER are all use a full leather upper with a microporous finish that is scuff resistant, water-resistant and easily cleaned. Just clean with soap and water or diluted leather cleaners. A shine can be put back on the leather with a car care product such as Armorall® or what works really good is Armorall® wipes.
If the shoe is scuffed through the finish, only polish the scratched area with the coordinating color.
The FORMAL is a high gloss patent Vinyl. The best way to clean them is with window or glass cleaner. For extra shine, apply a light amount of silicone spray and smooth into surface.
The FLEXY is made from very soft pigskin upper and only very mild soad and water should be used on them. Also, automotive upholstery cleaner can be used at ½ strength.
