How to Clean Your Juil Moccasins

Posted by Peter Coulter

Oct 8, 2014 10:00:00 AM

With the launch of our highly anticipated Earth collection that features all different types of mocs – from boots to slip-ons – we want to make sure that you know how to take care of and clean them. As with all shoes, cleaning and general maintenance are of utmost importance to make sure the footwear lasts a long time and holds up to your lifestyle. This is especially true for moccasins.  

Most moccasins, including our own, are made with premium, suede leather uppers, allowing for a durable and comfortable feel. Suede can be very tricky to clean, but don’t worry – these few simple tips can help keep them looking and feeling brand new!  IF DIY techniques aren’t preferred, taking your shoes to a dry cleaner to be professionally cleaned is certainly an option.

Tips on How to Break in Leather Shoes

Posted by Peter Coulter

Sep 24, 2014 10:00:00 AM

Keeping your body healthy and in optimal condition requires taking care of your foundation, AKA your feet. If your feet aren’t happy, the rest of your body feels it. Taking care of your feet can include a wide variety of care methods (i.e. a foot detox), but a simple solution is ensuring that you have properly fitting footwear. Our work at Juil includes not only providing you with high quality, leather footwear, but also making sure that you find the perfect fit.

All of our footwear is made with natural leathers, which means that there will be a natural break-in process that will occur with your shoes.

When you first get a pair of leather shoes, slip them on to ensure that they’re the proper fit. When I say “proper fit”, I mean that there should be a little bit of space between your toes and the front of the shoe. If your toes hit the front of the toebox or you feel some tightness at the front of the shoe and foot, I would recommend sizing up to the next size. Having the width feel a bit snug, however, is completely normal and to be expected. The leathers will stretch out and form to your foot (like a glove…or should I say shoe).

A Juil Story – How Gwen’s Life Changed with Some “Vitamin G”

How were you first introduced to the Juil brand?

I saw these beautiful shoes in a beautiful spa in Hawaii. They caught my eye immediately. 

What interested you in Juil and made you think of getting a pair of our shoes?

Once I understood they promoted grounding, I knew it was something worth getting. 

What were you happiest or most surprised about after learning about Juil?

When I went to your website I was absolutely shocked to see how affordable they were for such quality leather.

Had you ever heard about the contemporary wellness trend of Earthing (or Connecting as we call it) before Juil? Did this trend have any impact on your decision to try out Juils?

Get To Know The Bad Yogi

Posted by Will Knight

Mar 14, 2014 7:54:00 AM

What does it mean to be a "Bad Yogi"? Here's what Erin Motz has to say in her own words!

"I'm not a Bad Yogi because I'm "bad" at yoga (not possible, btw), but because I strive to embrace my imperfections (always easier said than done). I know that super difficult poses and transitions are all the rage and seem to be the source of so much inspiration, but it I think it really just further sells this messed up message that we need to be "more" before we can be like "them." We feel that if we can get a little stronger or a little more flexible, then we'll also embody this "inspirational" image. I so hate that. Remember to not always be waiting for the better version of yourself and try to simply enjoy what's already there. Your physical ability doesn't make you better. Show up, do what you can, let the rest go." ~Erin Motz
