How to clean leather shoes

How to clean leather shoes | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

Leather shoes are accessories that require special care. Cleaning and caring for leather goods are gestures that underline how much we care for the things we wear. These gestures ensure that our shoes will be faithful companions for many years to come, especially when it comes to hand-crafted shoes made in Italy. Ageing, yes, but with dignity.

There are two different types of leather cleaning: routine and one-off cleaning.

Routine cleaning: this is the most frequent cleaning operation, which requires less work but allows you to count on a compact and well-hydrated upper. To achieve this, just remove any laces and use a brush with soft bristles to remove any surface dirt and dust. Leather is still a skin and as such it needs to be hydrated. There is nothing better for this than a neutral face and body moisturising cream. This should be spread across the leather in small quantities, until fully absorbed. This operation can be performed using a piece of cotton wool or a soft cloth. For a high shine, you can continue rubbing with the cloth until they can see their reflection in the upper.

One-off cleaning: shoes are what separates us from the ground. Mud and earth are therefore their inevitable companions. In order to free the leather of this unwelcome embrace we need to take a few extra steps. Use the same brush as before, this time dipping the bristles in warm water first. Next, brush them over some neutral soap and start cleaning, without letting the upper get too wet. Rinse with a slightly damp sponge and then dry the shoes carefully.

Once you are sure that the leather and stitching on the shoe are completely dry, continue with the routine cleaning and then leave the shoes to rest.

Cleaning leather shoes is a gesture to show that you care about your style.

How To Take Care of Your Shoes (Because They Take Care of You!) | Le Marche & Fashion | Scoop.it

The perfect pair of heels makes you look taller, leaner, and definitely more stylish, so how do you return the favor for your footwear?

  1. AIR THEM OUT -  If they’re really soaked from rain, try using a UVC light-powered insert, like SteriShoe, to disinfect and ward off potential viruses.
  2. KEEP IT CLEAN - Leather shoes need a sweeping from a soft cloth, while suede pairs benefit from a stiff brush.
  3. FIGHT ODOR - Put cedar chip inserts inside closed-toe shoes to absorb odor-causing dampness. Try LA Closet Design, they have great ones.
