In today’s high fashion world, more men than ever before want to look their best – and this includes getting noticed for the shoes they wear. According to a recent article at Bloomberg, founder of To Boot New York has a few tips for men who want to get noticed for their shoes. As distributors of wholesale footwear around the globe, we thought many men would find this interesting.
Adam Derrick, founder of the brand, recommends men shop for quality – and Italian. It’s all in the details, so a few pair of well-made shoes with attention to detail is preferred over a closet full of cheap shoes. A stitched sole indicates a sturdier, higher-quality shoe than those with a bonded or glued sole. Derrick insists that footwear made in Italy is of the ultimate quality, with more focus placed on comfort and details in construction.
How to care for shoes and prolong life? Maintenance is critical.
Wiping down shoes with a paper towel or cloth before you put them on your feet is recommended, as dust/dirt that collects in creases can wear the leather, creating a sort of sandpaper effect.
Suede shoes should be protected with a spray that repels water and stains, however they should be lightly misted and not saturated. Brushing with a suede brush is recommended for removing dirt.
Using a matching color cream polish is only necessary if the leather is scuffed. Otherwise, protect color by using a neutral polish on white leather, and a color that matches the body of the shoe on two-toned shoes of burnished leather.
Try to alternate shoes and avoid wearing the same pair two days straight. This gives shoes a chance to dry out thoroughly, and prolongs the life of shoes.
A cedar shoe tree is a must, as it absorbs moisture, gives shoes a fresh smell, and maintains contours by ironing out creases.
Years ago, men weren’t nearly as concerned with their choice of footwear as they are today. Men, like women, now consider their shoes an important aspect of their overall wardrobe rather than something to protect their feet and provide comfort.
