When you invest in a new pair of designer shoes, you often spend a lot of money on them. For this reason, you’ll want to make sure that they are properly looked after when you are out and about. The last thing you want to happen is you get a white pair of Balenciaga sneakers or Givenchy shoes covered in dirt and then they are ruined forever.
How To Properly Look After Your Designer Shoes
To help you with this, we have put together some of our tips and tricks to help you properly look after your designer shoes. Keep reading to find out more.
Store Them Properly
One of the most important ways that you can look after your designer shoes is to store them properly. You might have a shoe rack that you keep all of your designer shoes on but could they still get damaged there? You might want to think about keeping them in the box along with a dust bag and some tissue paper. Try to figure out the best storage solution and make sure that they don’t get all dusty.
Another great way to properly look after your designer shoes is to make sure that you are making them dirt and water-resistant. This can be done by spraying your shoes with the right kind of spray. You can usually pick up a shoe spray that prevents salt-staining online or in a store that sells designer shoes. This is very important if your designer shoes are smooth leather or suede.
If you have some designer shoes that have a sole that can be worn down, it can be beneficial to have them resoled right away. This can be done by taking them to an expert cobbler who is experienced in working with these kinds of shoes. You can add thin rubber sole protectors and this will help them to stay in top condition for longer. While you might be tempted to wear your shoes right away, this handy tip can really help you to keep your shoes intact.
Wipe Them Down
Our final tip for those who want to properly look after their designer shoes is to wipe them down after every use. This obviously depends on the kind of material that the shoes or sneakers are made of but it can be very useful. You can use a handbag wipe or another gentle wipe but make sure that you read the ingredients carefully. This will help you to protect your shoes.
