Frequently asked questions
Whatever your individual taste or style, we've got you covered on sandal options . Whether it's slides, gladiators, closed-toe, heeled sandals, or chunky platforms, we've got options in a beautiful range of materials and colours. The black open-toe 'scala' with red outsole detailing, the 'gola' red patent leather with a gorgeous tortoiseshell feature buckle, or the 'leccos', in both black and blush, slip on easily to add a sophisticated finish to any summer outfit.
The best cleaning method really depends on the kind of leather you're looking to treat. For smooth or grain leather, a neutral conditioner or light beeswax polish both nourish natural leathers and add a thin layer of weather protection. You should brush the leather to remove dirt before applying with a soft cloth or shoe brush and then finish by buffing off the excess.
A great way to remove small marks on upper leathers is to erase them with a white pencil eraser.
For patent and hi-shine leather, you'll want to opt for specially formulated patent products that clean and protect whilst protecting against cracking.
With metallic leathers, lightly dust using a soft micro-fiber cloth. Avoid heavy buffing or polishes as they may cause the metallic foil to lift or discolour.
Suede is easier to maintain than widely thought and the regular application of a protective spray will shield against moisture stains. A crepe suede brush can be used to remove subtle marks. At habbot we offer a wide range of shoe care products to accomodate all your leather cleaning needs.
habbot has some great dressy sandals for all your special events in spring and summer. The 7cm 'riva' high heel sandal offers showstopping style without compromising on comfort, and comes in a variety of bright and metallic colourways. Designed with a statement slingback strap and wide band across the toe, the cut is flattering and timeless.
Make every day a celebration in our 4cm 'pepe' heeled sandal. Finished in soft suede with glitter accents at the ankle strap and heel, it’s the perfect blend of elegance and comfort - ideal for a day at the races or a special outing. The 'pepe' comes in flattering hues of silver, coral pink and black & gold.
A newer offering for an elevated sandal look are the 'brolo' slingback heels in platinum metallic leather with a tapered peep-toe.
The best way to soften leather sandals is to wear them in gently. We would never suggest a first outing where you plan to be out all day on your feet.
Despite their high quality, some leathers take longer to "open up" and adjust to your foot shape (particularly patent, high shine and metallics). If worn in shorter increments initially, 3 to 4 hours sessions, they will adjust and wear-in accordingly. The structure of habbot sandals is such that the shoe leather will open up and soften to create a more comfortable fit across the width of the foot but the length will never change. Thus, while the sandals will comfortably mold to the feet, they will never lose their integrity.
