Here we are going to tell you that how can you take care of your footwear.

Do you remember seeing white cottony fibers on your leather shoes just after the rains? If yes, you should be aware of the fact that leather shoes get spoilt due to the growth of these white fibers. These white fibers are commonly called fungus and they can even turn reddish and brown when the infestation is severe. Branded leather shoes from big brands such as Bata and Sparx too can get affected by fungus if they are not taken good care of.

Here are some tips that will help you in taking good care of your leather footwear.

Tip #1: Remove the dust and muck off your shoes when you come home

First and foremost, you will have to take out all the debris off your shoes once you are home. You may use a brush or a wet cloth to do so. Once you have done this, don’t transfer the shoes directly to the closet. Let it dry out of you have used a wet cloth to clean the shoes. This is also applicable for sandals for men and women.

Tip #2: Dry the waterlogged shoes

If your shoes have got soaked in the rain, make sure that you dry them very well before you transfer them to the closet. Wet shoes will attract fungus very quickly and will also give a very foul odor.

Tip #3 Always wear clean socks

If you are used to wearing socks for multiple times, let me tell you that it is really bad for the shoes. The health of the shoes depends on how you keep them. If you don’t take good care of your shoes, they will not last for a long time. That’s really simple.

Tip #4 Wear suitable footwear depending on the weather

Shoe damage is seen predominantly during the rainy season. This is the time of the year that you look at rubber shoes – Bata has some fantastic ranges. If you prefer jogging in the rains, then there are some really good waterproof sports shoes from the house of Sparx. If you don’t feel like wearing rubber shoes to the office, you can keep a pair of leather shoes in your office closet and change into them when you reach office. This is what most office goers are doing these days.

Tip #5: Apply extra shoe shine

There may be times where you have no choice, but to wear leather shoes to the office or a party. In such instances, you can apply shoe wax liberally to the upper surface of the leather shoes. The wax will act as a water repellant and protect your shoes from getting soaked completely. In fact, when you apply wax polish, you will also get protection from various external agents such as salts.

By and large, you should be aware of the safety tips for your shoes and act accordingly. If you see any damage to your shoes, you should take remedial action immediately. Well maintained shoes will give a good impact especially during office parties or big events.
