Shoes are important necessity in our lives as we need it to protect our feet from hot and cold ground and dangers from objects that might hit our feet. As time goes by, shoes have evolved from merely serving a purpose of feet protection to being a part of the fashion statement. Every pair of shoes has an equivalent amount of money and some requires really high amount of money so it is important to know how to take care of your shoes. Below are proper shoes care tips for you:

Repair work:

It is important to invest in a high -quality cobbler to resole or reheel your shoes as you did in repurchasing them. And to prevent permanent damage (or, at least, the outrageous repair costs), have all work done before it’s absolutely necessary.

Suede:

You cannot polish away any scuff marks in a suede shoes. The best way to eliminate marks is by using a suede eraser (looks like a brick of crumbly rubber) to remove the blemishes. Then a suede brush afterwards to restore the fuzz of the leather.

Wet shoes:

Getting a pair of wet shoes is unavoidable and this mostly happens unexpectedly. Stuff soaking-wet shoes with newspaper and dry them away from direct heat. The reason for having them away from direct heat is that heat can dry the leather too fast, causing it to crack and once that happens the only solution is buy a new shoes as the leather has already been destroyed.

Additionally, What About Smelly Shoes:

The most common solution is washing your feet more often, do not reuse your socks and do not reuse the same pair of shoes every day (Ideally, there should be three shoes to use alternately). If you only have one pair of shoes, then cleanliness of what’s inside the shoes should be done seriously. You may try inserting unvarnished cedar shoe trees into just-removed shoes as they’ll absorb perspiration and deodorizes the shoes.

Change your insoles, or better, take your shoes to a shoe repair shop to have the insoles replaced.

Proper Polishing of Shoe:

  1. Wipe your shoes down with a damp cloth to remove superficial dirt and stains.
  2. Wet the welt brush and scrub out the entire welt strip.
  3. If the shoes need it, apply sole-edge dressing — carefully. If you get it on the uppers, it will stain them permanently. Let edge dressing dry before going any further.
  4. Apply polish, using a circular rubbing motion. You don’t need to slather it on. You don’t need to be gentle. And the more you rub, the better. Let the polish dry. It should take about five minutes.
  5. Buff the entire shoe with a polishing brush. For extra gleam, hold the shoe between your knees and buff the toe vigorously with a lint-free cloth.
