Maintaining your shoes

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

You’ve spent a lot on your fine leather shoes and if you want them to last for a very long time you need to take care of them.  Here are some guidelines to follow to help get the most out of your footwear.

  • Let them “Rest”. Giving your shoes a day or two between wearing will allow the moisture from your feet to dry out of them naturally.
  • Use cedar  shoe trees. Cedar shoe trees will maintain your shoe’s shape and help avoid creases.  The cedar will absorb moisture and add a fresh cedar aroma to your shoes.
  • Store in shoe bags. Shoe bags will keep your shoes from accumulating dirt and dust while not being worn.
  • Shine your shoes at least once a month. By shining with a cream at least once a month you will maintain the leather’s supple texture and keep it from drying out and cracking.  Here is a great video with some shining tips How to polish shoes.
