Just good shoes aren't enough to create lasting impressions; greatly adding to it is how well you keep them. Walking around a social gathering wearing shabby footwear speaks volumes about one's ignorance to personal hygiene. Investing in a pair of plush leather formals isn't a good idea if you don't invest in taking good care of them. Proper shoe care ensures that your shoes look fantastic, last long and provide tremendous utility!
Here are some necessary shoe care practices you should adopt:
A shoe brush helps remove dirt and dust off shoes. Depending on the texture and material of your shoe, choose the hardness (or softness) of bristles of your shoe brush. A soft-medium bristled brush is the best option.
Tip – Running a moist cloth over your shoe before scrubbing it with a brush will give better results.
For leather shoes especially, conditioning is extremely essential to avoid cracks and to keep them well moisturised. Try using a leather shoe cream for the same – keeps the shoe hydrated and shiny.
Tip – Make sure you remove the extra conditioner from the edges your leather shoe after a few minutes to avoid it from thickening.
Use a shoe shiner sponge for quick polishing of patent leather, synthetic leather shoes. For a lasting sheen, the good old wax shoe polish works best. Special care has to be taken while polishing your suede shoes - make sure you opt for a good quality suede shoe polish.
Tip – Have two separate brushes for cleaning and polishing. Also, ensure that the brush is dry and clean before you use it for polishing. A dirty brush could stain your shoe.
