10 Tips to keep your shoes looking good and lasting longer:
1. When putting on your shoes, always use a shoe horn. This protects the heel from unnecessary wear.
2. Always use cedar shoe trees after wearing. They're designed to absorb moisture and maintain the regular shape of your shoes.
3. Allow shoes to dry completely, inside and out, by not wearing the same pair of shoes on consecutive days.
4. Always use leather cleaner to remove common dirt and dust from your shoes before polishing. Then apply a leather conditioner prior to polishing. This extra step is a necessary precaution to protect the natural beauty of the leather
5. When needed, shoe cream that is the same color or slightly lighter than the color of the leather.
6. After the shoe cream has dried, buff the shoes with a soft brush.
7. Use a Paste Polish with shoe wax to polish your shoes regularly. Brush and rub with a soft cloth for a high gloss.
8. When traveling, use shoe bags or wrap shoes in a soft material. This protects the leather from scratches.
9. Use rubber overshoes to protect your shoes during foul weather. Wet leather wears more quickly than dry. Always waterproof your leather.
10. Bring in your footwear to Sofia Shoe Repair for a tune up or a free shoe care inspection.
