N’go Shoes presents its model of chrome-free leather sneakers "Dak Lak", named as a province located in the highlands region of Central Vietnam. This is where we find the largest coffee crops in the country, including Robusta coffee.
Chrome-free tanning makes the leather more sensitive to water. Waterproofing before the first use, with a regular renewal, will protect the leather, avoid color fading, and increase durability. If your shoes have been in the rain, do not dry them under a radiator or under the sun. In this case, the leather may crack, shrink and become yellow. Let the shoes air-dry and remove the sock liner.
We know it is hard for you to stop wearing your N'go because of their comfort, but avoid wearing a pair of shoes two days consecutively. The moisture released by perspiration harms the leather. Even the N'go sometimes need some rest.
Since our shoes are partly hand-woven, they are not adapted for a machine washing; it could damage the materials. To eliminate stains, opt for hand washing with cold water and soap.
