Store your shoes in their box. This will keep moisture away and preserve their shapes. Store them in a dry place away from direct sunlight such as your closet. To preserve the shape, use unbleached and dye-free paper stuffing to help them keep their shape for a long time.
Wear the shoes around the house before the event. If needing a bit stretching, wear them with thick socks.
All Bella Belle shoes come with a layer of protective film on the outer sole. Be sure to remove the liner before wearing.
Please note, however, that shoes which had their protective film removed or damaged are not eligible for exchange or return.
If the embellishments of your shoes catch on the delicate fabric of your dress (such as tulle or lace), you may want to try this trick: Apply a few coats of clear nail polish over the embellishments to prevent the prongs from catching onto delicate fabric.
If your event is outdoor, we recommend using heel stoppers to prevent your heels from sinking into grass. Avoid wet, grassy and rough pebbled areas. The silk and leather components that make up your shoe will thank you.
In case your shoes get dirty, the first thing to do is remove any loose dirt. Be careful not to rub any dirt into the material. For silk shoes. spot clean soiled areas using a soft toothbrush and water diluted in gentle soap detergent. Use a gentle circling motion to tackle stubborn marks.
All Bella Belle Shoes are hand-beaded. Periodically check for loose metal prongs to make sure they are holding the crystal intact. Press down or tighten the prongs around the crystals.
Please note: Leather is a natural product and will come into direct contact with your skin. Therefore the colours with which the leather can be dyed are subject to the strictest regulations. Lotions, foot make-up, foot deodorants and other alcohol-based foot care products can cause the dye to come off. We recommend to avoid using such products.
