Keep it Looking like Brand New: How to Care for Shoes

There are two things that you can never have too many of: good friends and good shoes.

Maybe that is why ladies are known for having different pairs of shoes, with some having more than 10 pairs of pumps, sandals, boots and flats, in her closet. There’s no shame in it. Shoes are good investment, right?


If you’re really determined to collect different pairs of shoes, whether it’s branded or bought on a shoe sale, it’s highly important that you know how to keep them in shape. A well maintained luxury shoes or wholesale shoes for women can last longer period and can look brand new even after months of use.

Here are some tips on how you can care for your high heels.

1. Keep it Clean and Dry

After a day of walking on the road, partying or battling with the rain or snow, it’s always a must to clean and dry out your shoes. Some ladies, who do not spend extra minute to clean their shoes, get the surprise of their life when their shoes get irreparably damaged.

Prevent this from happening by gently wiping dirt and dust off your shoes after a long day. Stuff old newspaper inside your shoes and booties to absorb the moist and maintain the original shape of your shoes.

2. Watch the floors you’re walking in

There are shoes for the red carpet and shoes for the rough road. If you want your shoes to last, you have to know the difference. When you’re wearing single sole pumps or stiletto shoes, try not to wear out the soles and the heels by avoiding rocky pavement. If you’re going for a long walk, opt for sturdy flats or wedge boots instead.


3. Have the right storage for your shoes

Sure you can leave your shoes on the stairs, under your bed or near the doorsteps, but having a dedicated space in your room for your shoes can help in keeping it in shape for a longer period of time. Invest in a quality shoe rack or shelf for your wholesale shoes and organize them accordingly.

4. Wear them regularly

Shoes tend to get old and crisp when it’s not worn regularly. To make sure that your shoes are looking good and doing well, wear it at least once or twice a month. This is also a great chance to allow your favorite shoes to breathe and rest for a day.
