Sizing + Care
All sizes listed on this website refer to standard European shoe sizes.
Please refer to the size guide chart before placing your order.
Young Soles are made with the finest European leathers, chosen for its softness and supple qualities. The leathers are not treated or coated with plastic. This does mean that they may mark if scuffed and require a little more care than most high-street shoes.
Young Soles Sandals are not water-safe and we do not recommend submerging them in water. We cannot accept any responsibility for water damage.
How to keep your Young Soles shoes looking good...
To clean your leather Young Soles shoes, simply wipe away any surface dirt with a damp cloth or wipe. Cover any scuffs and scrapes with a good-quality matching shoe cream. It is important that the shoes are dry before application. Allow the shoes to sit with the cream on for as long as possible. Ideally let the cream soak into the leather overnight. Take the polish off with a soft cloth and buff them until they shine.
To keep your patent leather Young Soles shoes looking fantastic, clean any surface dirt away with a damp cloth or wipe. Apply a patent leather polish, and allow to dry. Buff your patent leather shoes with a soft cloth to create a reflective shine.
To clean your suede and nubuck Young Soles shoes, use a suede brush to lightly brush away dust or dirt. Brush repeatedly in the same direction. Use a suede eraser or block to remove stubborn marks. To extend the life and make the shoes easier to clean in the future, simply apply a non-toxic suede protector. Suede can also be revived using steam from the kettle and gently cleaning with a rubber suede brush.
With all leather soled shoes, they will expand when wet. Our recommendation is to avoid wet conditions during the first few wears of your new shoes. In the event that your leather soles do become very wet, ensure they are allowed to dry out slowly and naturally, away from direct heat.
