You probably just asked why I need to use different techniques to take care of my shoes. The reason is that shoes have different types of materials. Some of the materials are; 

  1. Leather 
  2. Denim
  3. Faux Fur
  4. Canvas
  5. Textiles
  6. Synthetics
  7. Foam

 Now that you have seen some of the materials, you should also know how to take care of each material differently, but today, we will deal with the general techniques you can use to take care of your shoes.

You can’t do anything if you get dust on your shoes during use in a dusty environment. Honestly, getting dust on your shoes is inevitable if you are not careful where you place them after use. 

Having excess dust on your shoes can cause loss of natural shoe colors or even make them look old. To keep your shoes in good shape for a long time is to polish or clean them after use.

2. Shoes hate moisture

Anything that will keep your shoes moist is a big no. Being moist is one of their red flags.  Moisture can result in the growth of bacteria which causes shoe materials to break down quickly. 

The best way to protect your shoes is to store them in a cool and dry place. 

3. Have a Shoe rack.

Shoes need to be stored properly to remain in good condition. Having a shoe rack is one of the best ways to store them. It also helps to keep your shoes organized. That way, you know which of your shoe to tend to at different points in time. 

Shoe racks come in different shapes and sizes. It depends on your taste and how many shoes you have as well. If you are a fan of handmade shoe racks, there is a carpenter waiting for you on Gatekrasher. You can thank me later (winks). 

4. Don’t drag your feet.

Can the volume be increased at this point? Dragging your feet is one of the easiest ways to say goodbye to your shoes. Just as your soul is key to your being, so is your sole to your shoe. 

There is no way the sole of your shoes will survive the year after a lot of dragging on the ground. 

Don’t drag your feet. It is harmful to your shoes. 

5. Keep away from direct sunlight.
