Caring for your Koios

Koios are made from fine Italian materials, each of which requires a different kind of care. Scroll to learn how to keep yours looking box-fresh with Koio-approved care products.

CHROME-TANNED LEATHER

CHROME-TANNED LEATHER: These care instructions apply to all leather shoes except ‘Castagna’ and ‘Mocha’ colorways, and the Primo in ‘Onyx.’

Pre-wear care

Upon receiving your Koios, lightly coat them with Crep
Protect’s water and stain-resistant ‘Spray’

Regular care

For the best results, we recommend Crep Protect’s ‘Cure’ kit, which includes the brand’s ‘Ultimate Shoe Cleaner,’ ‘Premium Brush,’ and a microfiber towel. We encourage you to wash the towel before use to prevent loose fibers from shedding

Dispense a small amount of the ‘Ultimate Shoe Cleaner’ into a bowl of warm water, then stir

Soak one part of the microfiber towel in the bowl of solution

Remove the towel and ring out excess solution, then gently wipe away dirt and scuffs

Should any stubborn stains remain on your shoe, gently work a small amount of the ‘Ultimate Shoe Cleaner’ into the surface of your shoe using the ‘Premium Brush’

Using the dry section of the towel, gently pat your shoe until its surface is dry

Allow the shoe to air-dry completely for at least 2 hours

BETWEEN-WEARS CARE

Place men’s or women’s shoe trees inside your Koios to maintain structure, minimize unwanted odors, and prevent moisture accumulation

VEGETABLE-TANNED LEATHER

VEGETABLE-TANNED LEATHER: These care instructions apply to the ‘Mocha’ and ‘Castagna’ shades of our leather shoes, as well as the Primo in ‘Onyx.’

PRE-WEAR CARE

Vegetable-tanned leather Koios are hand-brushed with a blend of waxes and oils that nourish the material’s surface, so you won’t need to do anything upon receiving them

REGULAR CARE

Regularly use a dry, soft cloth to sweep away dirt and debris

Every four to six months, apply a generous amount of leather conditioner to your shoes to maintain their natural sheen and prevent cracking

Allow to dry fully after conditioning—dry time depends on the conditioner used

Please note, cleaning agents—including Crep Protect’s ‘Cure’ kit and ‘Spray’—should not be used on vegetable-tanned leathers

BETWEEN-WEARS CARE

Place men’s or women’s shoe trees inside your Koios to maintain structure, minimize unwanted odors, and prevent moisture accumulation

SUEDE & NUBUCK

SUEDE & NUBUCK: These care instructions apply to all styles made with suede or nubuck, but not leather.

PRE-WEAR CARE

Upon receiving your Koios, lightly coat them with Crep Protect’s water and stain-resistant ‘Spray’**Crep Protect’s ‘Spray’ may darken the color of your suede and nubuck Koios,
especially if the color of the material is light. If you wish
to avoid a slight color change, we encourage you to refrain
from using this product. Our suedes and nubucks are—like all of our materials—very high quality, so they will resist salt stains naturally

REGULAR CARE

Suede and nubuck do not respond well to moisture, so we recommend spot-cleaning these materials with an ‘eraser,' which doesn’t require water

Gently rub the ‘eraser’ against spots and scuffs until minimized or removed entirely

BETWEEN-WEARS CARE

Place men’s or women’s shoe trees inside your Koios to maintain structure, minimize unwanted odors, and prevent moisture accumulation

CANVAS, Mesh, & nylon

CANVAS, Mesh, & nylon: These care instructions apply to all non-leather shoes made with canvas, mesh, or nylon.

PRE-WEAR CARE

Upon receiving your Koios, lightly coat them with Crep Protect’s water and stain-resistant ‘Spray’

REGULAR CARE

For the best results, we recommend Crep Protect’s ‘Cure’ kit, which includes the brand’s ‘Ultimate Shoe Cleaner,’ ‘Premium Brush,’ and a microfiber towel. We encourage you to wash
the towel
before use to prevent loose fibers from shedding

Dispense a small amount of the ‘Ultimate Shoe Cleaner’ into a bowl of warm water, then stir

Work the diluted solution into your shoe with the ‘Premium Brush,’ using small, circular motions

Wipe away excess solution away using the microfiber towel

Allow the shoe to air-dry completely for at least 2 hours

BETWEEN-WEARS CARE

Place men’s or women’s shoe trees inside your Koios to maintain structure, minimize unwanted odors, and prevent moisture accumulation
