How to Take Care of Your Leather Shoes

Laura Ashley from Kreativ Boutique

I personally like leather shoes because they are durable and comfortable for my feet that endure long hours of walking and standing. I have to make sure that my heels are well cushioned and my type of shoes makes the difference.

So, since leather shoes are pricey, we have to make sure that we know how to take care of them to prolong their lifespan.

Here are the practical tips to take care of your precious leather shoes:

  • Use leather protection liquid against UV, dust and other leather enemies;
  • Use water repellent protection; before you apply your treatment, clean your shoes with damp cloth before applying the treatment to open the leather pores for better absorption;
  • Air dry your shoes if they are wet or from use; Avoid direct sun exposure.
  • Clean regularly your shoes; use leather conditioner for the needed moisture.
  • Keep them in room temperature because extreme heat can also deteriorate your shoes.
