Discover our expert advice on how to care for and maintain your shoes and sneakers in the long term.
Start off on the right foot to keep your shoes looking good longer
For the first few days, new shoes should not be worn for more than three hours, your feet will thank you for it and so will the leather of your shoes. After the first few days, we also recommend that you do not wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row to give the leather time to dry. Keeping your shoes on a shoe tree when you are not wearing them also helps to keep their shape and avoid deep creases.
Maintaining your shoes is a habit to get into
Your everyday tools to keep the leather from cracking or warping: the shoehorn and shoe tree shoe tree. The first preserves the buttress’ rigidity and the second avoids creases on the upper. A brush can also be used in the evening before putting your shoes away to prevent dirt from getting stuck to the leather. If it rains, dry your shoes one to two hours before inserting the shoe tree.
In addition to these small daily gestures, remember to do a more thorough maintenance once or twice a month: brush your shoes before applying a milk to clean them well. Once the leather is clean and the milk has been absorbed, apply a nourishing cream that will keep it supple and revive the colour. Finish with a coat of shoe polish to protect the leather and use a shine glove for a perfect finish.
