Scratches and scuff marks tend to occur due to improper use of your shoes. Scuffs can happen when you are driving or your heel goes into a hole in the pavement, etc. Lodi always uses the highest-quality leather that is carefully selected for manufacturing and crafting our shoes and handbags. However, as Lodi uses all natural leather, there may be slight differences in tone, which is absolutely normal for natural and transparent finishes.
Because it is a natural material, leather tends to get stained when it comes into contact with liquid such as oil, fats, etc., either when trying to clean them or by accident or if a corrosive liquid is spilled on the shoe.
