Although leather is durable, it’s essential to remember that leather is essentially skin. It’s prone to drying, cracking, staining, warping, and other issues. Paragon Studio leather sporting goods are meticulously designed and crafted for use, and thus, we’ve compiled a basic leather care guide to help you maximize the longevity of your Paragon Studio items.

How do you want your Leather to Look?

The initial step in determining how to treat and maintain your leather is simply asking yourself what you want it to portray and its role in your life. Personal taste plays a role; some prefer a clean, polished appearance for their leather items, while others embrace scratches, blemishes, and natural wear and tear.

Varied Leather Treatments

An array of creams, polishes, waxes, and conditioners flood the market, making it challenging to select the ideal leather treatment product for your desired outcome.


Primarily geared towards aesthetics, polish enhances the shine of products like shoes and bags, rather than solely focusing on protection. However, many polishes incorporate moisturizing elements. It’s essential to scrutinize product descriptions and user reviews to understand the product’s features.


Leather conditioner or cream moisturizes the material, preventing it from drying out and cracking. While it may not impart a shine, it offers protection. Conditioning frequency depends on personal preference, but we recommend every 6-12 months, allowing your Paragon Studio item to thoroughly dry before reapplication.

Damp Cloth:

A trusty method for leather care involves using a damp cloth. Leather’s innate durability means it only requires occasional wiping down (without soap, as its chemicals can harm the leather) to eliminate dust or dirt buildup.

General Factors to Consider

Leather requires ventilation akin to human skin to prevent mildew and rot. Avoid prolonged storage in plastic bags; instead, utilize the storage/travel bag provided or breathable fabric.

Shield leather from direct sunlight/heat to prevent drying, cracking, and fading. If leather becomes waterlogged, allow it to air dry naturally to avoid shrinkage and damage.

Your Paragon Studio leather item typically doesn’t require waterproofing, as it’s already treated with a protective wax.

Before applying any polish or conditioner, conduct a patch test to ensure compatibility and prevent unintended color changes.

Opt for natural/neutral colors to avoid altering the leather’s hue unnecessarily.

Regularly clean leather with a damp cloth to prevent premature aging caused by dirt and grime accumulation.

In summary, establish a consistent routine for caring for your Paragon Studio leather sporting goods. In many cases, this routine involves these three simple steps:

1. Wipe down leather with a damp cloth every 2-3 months, depending on usage and dirt accumulation.

2. Condition leather every 6-12 months, adjusting as per environmental factors.

3. Optionally waterproof once a year, based on personal preference and lifestyle.
