3 Practices for Keeping Your Shoes in Like-New Condition, Brighton, New York

A quality pair of shoes is an excellent investment for any wardrobe, whether your style is classic or trendy. And with a little bit of effort, you can keep those shoes looking great for years to come. To help you out, the team at Sofia Shoe Repair Service in Rochester, NY, shares the following tips.

How to Maintain Your Favorite Pair of Shoes

1. Polish Leather

shoesPolishing leather shoes regularly will extend the life of the material and keep it looking great. As soon as you buy a new pair of leather shoes, polish them with a conditioning blend. This is also a way to breathe new life into old shoes and helps restore richness to the color. Give your shoes a good shine each time you wear them to protect against the elements.

2. Protect Suede

Like leather, suede shoes require regular maintenance to keep them looking new. New suede shoes should be treated with a protective spray before you wear them, as it makes the material less susceptible to damage from water and other elements. Brushing the shoes regularly will remove dirt and rejuvenate the fabric. For stubborn stains, use a suede eraser, which is a rectangular piece of art gum. Simply rub the eraser on the stain firmly, and then brush the area.

3. Resoling

The bottoms of shoes suffer the most wear and tear, but you can protect them by adding a rubber sole to help them withstand damage. This will also give the shoes extra traction, and it’s less expensive than fully replacing leather soles.

While following these tips can prevent early damage, wear and tear is still possible if you wear your shoes regularly. If your favorite pair needs some sprucing up, choose Sofia Shoe Repair Service. From recoloring to boot repair, their experts work meticulously to keep your shoes looking great. Visit them online or give them a call at (585) 244-5907 for more information.
