Piñatex. We love it.
Has dirt attached itself shamelessly to your shoes? A moist towel will solve most of the problem. More stubborn stains can be attacked with some soapy water.
Do you like the grungy look?
- Sure: Piñatex is a natural material that weathers beautifully. After a while the pineapple fibre will start to show some lint. No problem. That just gives them more character.
- Not at all: You should consider using a little wax before you start wearing them. Colourless natural wax feeds the fibres and keeps everything looking spotless. You can also use traditional shoe-care products, you can buy everywhere. With a little black shoe polish you can give your sneakers a little extra depth.
