1 – Do not wear the same shoes more than once on consecutive days, regardless of their type and style. After all, shoes need to breathe as they absorb the sweat from our feet. Therefore, the next indicated use is within the next 24 hours;
2 – No washing your shoes with water; this will ruin any shoe made of any material! If you need to clean (it’s always good, ok?), wipe it with a damp cloth. This applies to both women ‘s shoes and men’s shoes;
3 – Keep the shoe in a dry and airy place, without too much sun. Some people think that leaving the shoe in the sun to rest will do them good, but leaving the shoe exposed to the strong sun can ruin it, fade and damage the material.
4 – Do not use any cleaning products, as these can damage your shoes.
5 – Taking the opportunity to talk about cleaning products, a homemade tip is to use baking soda inside your shoes from time to time.
6 – When storing, prefer to put them in boxes (no stacking one on the other without any protection, it will deform all models) and preferably with a wooden mold or in that paper that comes inside; this helps to keep the shape of the shoe.
7 – Always choose good quality products, prefer to pay a little more as products with durable and resistant materials cost more, but they give a thinner face to your model and last much longer.
8 – Some materials, such as suede, require greater and differentiated care, such as using and cleaning; always be aware of the characteristics of your new pair and how to take care of it (google can help you very well with this)!
9 – Keep your shoelaces clean and in order. If necessary, wash in the washing machine or even with neutral soap in the tank. If it fades, frays and rips, don’t hesitate to exchange it, stop by a store and buy a new one.
