Corthay Fantomas, Flint Suede

What can be said about the Fantomas? Take a ghillie, make it in patinated flint suede, add single leather soles, work in some purple laces, and you have this very pair by the master himself, Pierre Corthay. An everyday shoe? Hardly. But that won’t get in your way.

How to clean suede

Suede isn’t as delicate as you may have heard. In fact it’s quite resilient and easy to clean. We recommend Saphir’s Omni’nettoyant, which works like a shampoo for suede, working into a lather and cleaning deep into the nap. It’s strong enough to clean thoroughly but gentle enough not to damage the leather. It’s important to care for your shoes, and suede is no exception.
