The Merrell Chameleon II men's shoe is a lightweight, all-purpose trail shoe. It is best suited for outdoor hiking and movement, and has been designed for durability and traction in all warm weather situations. It features a rubber sole, synthetic lining and insole and a pigskin leather upper. Like all shoes made from leather, the leather upper on the Merrell Chameleon II requires a minimum level of attention after normal use to prevent it from deteriorating With care, however, the leather part of the shoe will probably outlast the sole. The interior and sole of the shoe, being synthetic, don't require as much special attention.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Brush the pigskin leather thoroughly with a toothbrush or other brush with nylon bristles to remove dirt and grime.

  2. 2

    Use the suede eraser or a soft rubber pencil eraser on any particular spots of grime or dirt. Rub the eraser back and forth on the leather as if you were erasing a pencil mark, and the grime will lift right out onto the eraser.

  3. 3

    Wet the cloth and rub in a small amount of saddle soap. Briskly wipe the soap over the whole leather area of the shoe. Allow to air dry away from heat.

  4. 4

    Cover the entire sole of the shoe in a 1/4-inch layer of baking soda and let it sit overnight. Dump the baking soda out in the morning, and it will take the smell with it.
