We have two kinds of Fishskin in our range, a regular Fishskin and a glazed Fishskin. The glazed Fishskin has a coating on it that means the material is going to be less porous and will be less affected by getting wet. You can identify these Fishskins as they use the word “shiny” in their title.
The non-glazed Fishskin lightens in colour slightly over time. You can slow this process by making sure that you store the shoes out of direct sunlight.
At the moment, there is no specific product on the market to care for Fishskin. To clean them, the best thing is to take a clean, soft, white cloth and gently wipe over the shoes. You can very lightly dampen the cloth with a little clean water to help remove mud, but proceed cautiously.
It is important to protect your shoes with a spray-on waterproofer before their first wear, otherwise the dye can become a little blotchy. Don’t forget to patch-test first!
