Care

We stand by the craftsmanship of our clogs and we want you to love and enjoy them for years to come. 

Every pair of Bryr clogs are handmade, start to finish, under one roof. As such, each pair has natural variations in color, wood grain and construction. We do not consider these variations as craftsmanship errors - instead, it's what we love most! With the proper care, you should be able to enjoy your clogs for years. Please see below for tips on keeping your clogs in great condition.
You may read more about our process here.

 Each pair of clogs wears differently from person to person. The environment, gait of the wearer, and frequency of use will all have an effect on the the clogs wear. Scratches and scuffs, water damage and outsole replacements are normal wear and tear and are not considered to be craftsmanship errors.

Please note, Bryr Studio does not offer in house repair services.

For all treatments, we recommend going to a shoe repair store for supplies and repairs. Support your local cobbler!


Wood

Our bases are carved from a solid block of lindenwood. We chose this wood because it’s strong, beautiful and long lasting. As a natural material, we ask that you please treat your clogs with some care. They are not indestructible. 

Please note that we do not accept returns on clogs that have been chipped. Our clog bases are made of solid wood, and, if struck against a hard surface with sufficient force, will chip. This is the nature of wooden bases, not a material defect. Your local cobbler can fix chips and cracks easily to keep your clogs in great shape for years. 

If the outsole rubber falls off, please do not wear your clogs. As wood is soft, it will wear down quickly and become irreparable. Please take your clogs to your local cobbler. Any cobbler will be able to replace the outsole rubber. 

Our bases are able to be resoled, so should you find you're wearing the outsole down, visit your local cobbler. 

Cleaning the bases:

We finish the wood of our clogs with a natural wax, which is what gives them a beautiful, lightly polished look. You’re welcome to re-wax with any all uncolored, natural wood wax, beeswax or wood sealer. You can use a mild detergent to gently clean the wood surface prior to waxing or to remove stains.

If you would like to keep your clogs looking like new, we suggest being mindful of your environment, and we recommend paying special attention to the bases and cleaning them after wear. If you prefer a worn in look, you should not need to treat your bases often, if at all.

We recommend slipping your clogs off while driving to prevent marks and stains.



Our leathers

We are proud to say that all of leathers are manufactured in the United States by heritage tanneries. They are the highest quality, most durable and, in our humble opinion, absolutely gorgeous.

Full Grain leather:

You can polish full grain leather like any leather shoes, but we recommend using natural materials when possible to keep the leather in great shape for years. It's always a good idea to test a small patch before application of any chemical protector.

Using shoe polish will extend the life of your shoes and may be a good choice if you live in a rainy climate. 

While we wouldn't recommend wearing your clogs in a downpour, you'll be just fine if you happen to get stuck. As our clogs are made of leather, stuffing them with newspaper when you're back on dry land will help maintain the shape. Leather is malleable when wet. 


Nubuck:

Nubuck has a buttery tender that's nice and soft from the get go. And, because it’s a buffed, full grain leather, it’s far more durable than suede.

A number of our nubucks are oiled. Some color transfer may occur on surfaces with these colors, so please be mindful when packaging and storing your clogs. We find using separate shoe bags or sectioning them off during travel is helpful. 

Depending on the climate you live in and the amount you except to wear your clogs, a nubuck protectant spray can be used.

For surface dirt and dust, use an all-natural horsehair brush and buff the dirt away.

If you get a stain on the nubuck, we suggest taking them to your local cobbler to better understand your options.

Metallics:

Our metallics are some of our favorite - they're rich and sturdy as our tannery places our metallic film over the nubuck. Metallics can be treated similarly to the leather, however, due to their nature there may be some rippling. This is something that should ease with wear. 

Metallics are to be treated slightly more delicately as the film can rub off with contract. We recommend packing these separately during travel and being mindful during wear.
