HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SHOES
by TATYZ on February 7th, 2018

​How to take care of your shoes:
1. Keep them in a breathable cardboard shoe box ( it protects shoes from dust and fading from sunlight)
2. Always use shoe horns to put your shoes on to avoid heel/counter damage
3. Walk carefully watching your steps.
4. Take off your shoes carefully by holding and pushing down the heel
5. Don't forget to brush the dust/dirt off the shoes with the soft-bristle brush. Use shoe polish if needed. Use shoe trees for keeping the shape of your shoes.
6. Change worn heel tips at shoe repair shop
​     Keep your shoes in dust bags or cardboard boxes  in dry conditions . Don't seal the product into a plastic bag or box for months at a time to avoid  product to get  mouldy. 
 
    If your  footwear has become wet, dry it at room temperature. For wet leather  shoes, stuff them with paper to their natural shape (not any bigger) and let them dry, away from a heat source. The next day give them a good brushing to bring back the nap.

    If the leather has become dirty, clean it gently with a sponge with some leather balm or cream.  Use a small amount and apply a thin and even layer, for example with a sponge. Wipe off the excess with a clean and dry cloth. Always try first on a small  surface to see how the color changes before you treat the whole shoe. Note that greasing will also soften the leather a bit.
    For light coloured leather, use natural color shoe polish, for black leather is better to use black colour treatment as it will enhance the color and shine.

    Special  suede protection spray can be used to protect the suede footwear  from stains and water damage. Use soft clean brush(sponge)  or special suede brush     to clean suede from dust and dry dirt.  If your suede product has become wet, dry it at room temperature. Don’t rub any suede product while it is wet.
        If  your  suede shoe has dry spots, try rubbing them away gently with a clean pencil eraser or a suede cleaning block.
