A new pair of shoes can get anyone excited. While some take extra caution to ensure their shoes stand the test of time and last them a significant amount of time, some avoid wearing them too often to keep them looking brand new. At Paragon, we believe that caring for your shoes can add to their life while you continue to flaunt them as much as you want. Whether you are an avid shopper who treats shoes as a priced possession or someone who sees shoe as just a commodity lasting for a limited time, here are a few tips to keep you shoes in the best of shape and form.
Cleaning your shoes
Cleaning right is the first step to adding to the longevity of your shoes. Gently wipe the exterior of your shoes with a dry cloth or a paper towel. Occasionally scrub the underside of your shoes where dirt can be accumulated. Avoid using a damp cloth, but if need be, dry them soon after.
Protection from Odor
Frequent use of shoes can cause unpleasant odor in shoes. Get rid of the unpleasant stink by stuffing newspaper in your shoes. The dual benefit of this trick is that both odor and moisture are contained. Another hack to get rid of odor is sprinkling foot powder in shoes before putting them on.
Invest in shoe care products
Shoe care is twice as effective when you invest in quality shoe care products that help your shoes last longer. Use good quality shoe polishes and brushes when you are walking out for an important event. Invest in a shoe horn to seamlessly slide your feet into the shoes. Remember, the more you care, the longer your shoes last.
Storing your shoes right
Throwing your shoes around can decrease the longevity of your shoes. Storing your shoes and organizing them neatly can result in long term benefits. Store your shoes in boxes or shoe trees. If you dont have either, a smart way to store your shoes away is by stuffing the toecaps with soft paper or tissue paper and neatly organizing them in a shoe organizer.
Always remember that the first step is to invest in quality shoes that by default last long and only need occasional maintenance. Check out our range of quality shoes for men and women. Visit www.paragonfootwear.com for more.
