My name is Elias, I am 17 and I have a lot of dreams to live for. I was born and raised in a neighbourhood close to Lisbon - it was here I took my first steps and it was here that I learned to dream. My family is very important to me and I want to see them happy. They taught me to always respect others and to always be humble. I have big ambitions for my future and I have long ago decided I want to become someone great. No one said that achieving my dreams would be easy but I am still standing and one day I will get there.
My sneakers might seem simple to most people but, for me they carry great meaning. As I grew up, I did not have access to the things other kids had and that was the reality I had to get used to. But I was always happy with what I had, kept a smile in my face and never stopped dreaming of better days where I could fulfil my potential. I only chose two colours: white simbolizes the purity and hope that people need to keep fighting even in difficulties and the black simbolizes the loss, loneliness and fear most of us carry inside. Always remember: move forward, look upwards. You conquer what you fight for.

I received a defective product. What should I do?
We guarantee the satisfaction of our customers. Therefore, if you feel that we have sent you a defective product, please notify us regarding the defect through support@diverge-
Plain Leather: Apply a thin layer of leather balm and once it’s dry, gently brush to keep the finish of the leather always in good conditions. Opt for softer hog bristles to make sure you don’t damage your sneakers. A leather protector spray is also an option to consider.
Suede: Use a brush to gently remove any dirt or dust. Brush in the direction of the fabric’s grain to avoid damaging it. Dry stains can be removed by using a white or brown gum eraser. If it doesn't work we advise you to visit your local cobbler and get additional advice.
Nubuck: Nubuck cloths are the best option to remove dirt and shiny spots. Wipe in several directions using circular motions and make sure you cover the entire nap area.
Rubber Soles: Clean the dirt with a dampened cloth and carefully soak the sole in a mixture of water and dishwashing soap. Make sure you don’t soak the upper part! Use a toothbrush with the mixture to scrub your soles. Once it’s done, dry the sneakers using a cloth.
1: Place your foot on top of a blank paper and against the wall (and don’t forget to wear socks).
2: Use a pencil (don't forget to have it straight as it shows on Step 2) to mark the longest toe of your foot. We advise you to repeat the same process for the other foot.
3: Use a ruler to measure the length between the longest toe of your foot and the wall.
Based on this measure, you can chose your number.
