Shoe Shine Class


Buy less buy better is our mantra and so is taking care of the things that we buy. That especially goes for shoes!

In this two hour shoe care masterclass we’ll take you through the essentials – cleaning, nourishing, polishing and protecting your favourite pair of leather shoes or boots – as well as providing tips to keep them looking good for longer. (This class is for leather shoes or boots, not nubuck, suede or trainers).
