As leaders in the wholesale footwear industry, we make shoes affordable to our customers, so that flea markets and discount chains can offer affordable footwear to their customers. However, we know that regardless of price, consumers want their favorite pairs of shoes to last for a long time. We have a few tips below that will help your shoes last longer, and preserve their new look.
Protect your heels. Many woman love heels, but they can quickly become scuffed or even broken. If you’re planning on dancing the night away, stick to something more practical. Don’t wear your heels when driving, or walking through rocks/gravel – stick to flats, then change when you get to your destination.
Let tennis shoes and leather shoes dry completely before wearing. The inevitable sometimes happens; you get caught out in a rain storm, and your shoes get soaking wet. Before wearing again, let them dry completely. Wearing them when they’re still damp will result in damage, and an unpleasant smell as well.
Clean dirt from your shoes before it sets in. Just like women remove their make up at night before turning in, your shoes should be wiped clean of dirt and mud after you remove them. It’s easier to clean off fresh dirt or mud now than when it has set in for a few days.
Stuff the toes of your shoes with tissue, or better yet with a shoe tree. Either one of these methods will help keep your shoes in their original shape.
Take them to a shoe repair service. There are several ways shoes can be kept looking like new, not to mention more comfortable. A shoe repair professional can add a layer of tread, add new taps, resole the shoes, and more.
Many of us slip our shoes off at the end of the day and toss them in the closet, never giving a second thought to how we care for them. Proper care of your footwear can extend its life, and make them look new for longer!
