1. Regularly Replace the Soles

When you feel that your leather shoes heel has worn down significantly, or you can feel things through the sole, it is time for a new one. Over time, a sole that has been worn down can ruin the structure of the whole shoe. Worn down soles can tilt your shoes and result in back pain; therefore, instead of having to replace the whole shoe, simply replace the soles regularly.

2. Prevent Water Damage

Water is a common ruin for leather shoes; luckily, this can be prevented. Every 6 months add a thin coat of waterproofing spray to your shoes to prevent them from being damaged. Also, avoid long treks in the rain and stepping in puddles.

3. Care for Waterlogged Shoes Immediately

If you accidentally wet your shoes, it is vital that you stuff them with either a rag or newspaper as soon as possible. Do not attempt to dry them off by a fire or with a hairdryer, as too much heat will cause the leather to crack.

4. Don’t Store Them in Their Shoe Box

It may seem like the best idea to store your expensive shoes in their original packaging- their shoebox. However, this is not the case when it comes to leather, as the humidity inside the box may damage the shoe. It is best to keep your shoes in a cool, dry place; such as a closet.

5. Don’t Over-Wear Them

Whilst it may be tempting, when you first purchase new leather shoes, it is important that you do not get into the habit of over-wearing them. Limit yourself to wearing them a few days a week; giving them a few days break will result in them lasting longer.
