Leather Shoes Buying Tips
Leather footwear has many benefits and there are always new styles to shop. When online shopping for your shoes you can access a wide variety of brands and enjoy amazing rewards that you would otherwise miss out on such as our amazing sales. Before you start shopping for your next casual or formal shoes, there are a few tips you should know.
Just like when buying leather gloves, you will need to keep in mind that leather shoes will shape and stretch to your size. Make sure that you have measured your feet properly before you select your first purchase.
If you have your eye on a pair of leather sandals, bear in mind that if you are in a warmer climate your feet may expand. Leather shoes are an investment for both you and your feet and it’s important that you get the right size.
Choosing your pair of leather shoes will greatly vary on the occasion that you plan to wear them on. If you are looking to style up your everyday look, keep in mind that a flatter shoe will provide more comfort for running from home to office to the shops. If you are looking for a pair of shoes for weddings, weekend nights out, or formal events, a leather shoe can add sophistication to any outfit.
How to Clean Leather Shoes
Just like any investment, you need to care for your leather shoes if you want to get the most out of them. No matter what brand of boots, loafers, or sandals that you have, you can keep them clean with just a few simple steps.
Remove laces (if applicable).
Using a shoe brush or soft cloth, remove any dirt from the shoe.
With a mix of warm water and soap, rub the surface of the leather in circles.
With a dry cloth or rag wipe off the soap and let your leather shoes dry completely before beginning to polish.
If you have a clear or coloured polish to match the colour of your leather shoes, follow the polish directions and apply to the shoe. Make sure to always test the polish on a small or hidden surface of your shoe before applying to your whole shoe.
How to Soften Leather Shoes?
If you have just bought a new pair of leather shoes, you may find that your shoes are a little stiff. But don’t worry, there are a few steps you can follow for both women and men’s shoes.
Wearing your shoes indoors is one of the best tricks to wear your new leather shoes in. While you are doing laps around the house in your new dress shoes or boots, you can also use your hairdryer to focus on any areas that feel tight. Note that when using a hairdryer, only use 20 second bursts of heat and never use your hairdryer too close to the surface of the leather as it may cause damage. You can also use newspaper scrunched into a ball to leave in your shoes overnight to help soften the fit.
