Care Guide


You deserve the best, and we’re committed to ensuring the longevity of each pair. 

Through the appropriate use of this care guide, you can be assured that your ZZ’s will last for generations to come. 

Every pair is handcrafted with real natural leather, so slight variations between each pair is normal and to be expected. 


We recommend storing your shoes carefully in their satin dustbags, especially when you travel. It is best to keep them in a well-ventilated place, out of the heat and out of direct sunlight. Our shoes often have some sort of crystal hardware or embellishment - be careful not to snag or scratch them (or the satin fabric) on anything while in storage. 

Utilize a shoe tree to maintain the shape of your shoes when not in use. Be mindful as to what you stuff the shoes with, so as not to accidentally stain the interior due to color transfer. 


Avoid contact with water, oils, alcohols, or solvents. If surface dirt comes in contact with the fabric, gently wipe away with a soft, dry cloth. 

We do not recommend walking on wet or extremely rough surfaces so as not to damage the soles, nor inadvertently stain the upper. Your works of art require care and delicate handling! 

Should your shoes sustain any significant damage, we recommend taking them to a professional cobbler. 

Do not clean your shoes with soap and water. After spot testing, you may use leather care products under appropriate circumstances (provided you carefully follow the instructions). 

Please note that Zena Ziora has made these recommendations simply as a courtesy to those wishing to care for our products and customers who follow these guidelines are solely responsible for the result, excluding Zena Ziora from any responsibility.
