Our footwear is produced from leather of two basic colours: black and brown. Any other color has to be applied in form of special covering varnish that has one important drawback. Cracks of the varnished leather may appear after some time of use. The varnish on mechanically strained parts may even crumble away. Please consider this fact before placing your order, as we cannot provide guarantee for the varnish for two years as usually. If you intend to use such shoes or boots just only once (e.g. for a wedding) or only several times a year, we assure you the shoes will serve you well and give you joy.

Care of the Roman peasants´ shoes Carbatinae

The shoes are treated with balm containing beeswax. The shoes are made of genuine leather. You can treat them with various shoe care products. The balm softens the leather soft and waterproofs it. Moreover, it makes the leather darker. If you do not have the balm, you can also use oil for leather or a normal shoe polish. The shoes polish can easily tone the leather color and cover minor imperfections (e.g. scuffed shoe tips).

 

Note on the size selection "made to measure": If you order tailor-made shoes from us and wear orthopaedic insoles, it is necessary to send them to us. The shoe manufacturer infixes the shoe inserts exactly and you can then look forward to the shoes fitting perfectly.
