The Break-in Process

The break-in process is a sign of a quality, handmade leather shoe that will last. (Which is why you don’t need to break-in your rubber flip-flops!)

  1. Wear your new SAAZ around the house for short periods of time to jump-start the break in process. We recommend 2 hours increments over the course of a few days. 
  2. If you feel any pain during these short periods of time, we recommend wearing socks with your shoes until they begin to soften. 
  3. Do not try to manipulate he leather with heat or water. 

Please note we are unable to accept exchanges on items worn outdoors, so take your time deciding on fit inside.
